Neuropsychological Testing Post Concussion

Housed within the skull, one might assume that our brains are well protected from harm. However, while in our day-to-day lives we can carry on without too much concern for harm coming to our brains, the reality is that a sudden impact or accident can make a huge difference. A concussion is essentially a mild form of traumatic brain injury. Neuropsychological testing post concussion is usually the preferred option for anyone who experiences symptoms or exhibit changes in their behaviour as a result of the event.

Post Concussion Neuropsychological Testing in Victoria

Here at Jurmaine Health, our clinical neuropsychologists have advanced skills in investigating and understanding the emotional, behavioural and cognitive effects of the brain. With ten years and counting of practical experience, gained through brain injury assessments with patients that were either referred or who independently sought our insights, we provide a level of analysis that is second to none. 

A concussion can be experienced after a blow to the head or severe shaking, which causes the brain to shake back and forth against the skull. Connective tissue can be damaged as a result, which leads to a disruption to normal cognitive function. Many people experience headaches, nausea, light and noise sensitivity as well as fatigue, dizziness and even vomiting where the issue is of a more serious nature. As such, it is necessary to seek a professional assessment to determine the extent of the damage.

Why Neuropsychological Testing For A Concussion is Necessary

A concussion is not a long-term issue and usually passes with appropriate rest after anywhere between one and ten days. However, the reason that many people seek neuropsychological testing for a concussion is to evaluate the effect on attention, memory, reasoning and a complete range of cognitive skills.

Those that do not choose to gain such insights miss out on gaining knowledge about how their brain has been affected that can indicate how their ability to function will be impacted. As such, through the identification of impairments, it is possible to learn what has been impacted and treatments or solutions can be determined that will help the recovery process and keep it on file through a neuropsychological report.

In some cases, it may, therefore, be recommended to engage with a rehabilitation program. Through repeat testing, it is then possible to identify progress and make adjustments to the methods used, where necessary to help lead to the best possible recovery.

Here at Jurmaine Health, we recognise that the best medicine for mild concussion is rest. In a short amount of time, the brain can recover and no treatment is required. However, psychological symptoms including depression, mood changes and irritability can be felt, which may lead to confusion and worry. 

Keep Your Brain Healthy With Neuropsychological Testing Post Concussion

Our team has dealt with countless referrals from legal, insurance, government and community groups, and we regularly engage individuals from the general public that wish to gain a complete understanding as to the impact an injury to the brain has had. Our reports are thorough, clear and we schedule a feedback session with the subject as well as any relevant party that made the referral to discuss our findings.

A neuropsychological test post concussion may be a necessary endeavour for the purposes of claims or legal proceedings, but regardless, it is a worthwhile undertaking that can help keep your brain healthy through effective treatment and rehabilitation. Book your appointment today.
