A comprehensive guide for improving memory, focus, and quality of life in the aftermath of a concussion.

Often presenting itself after a head trauma, concussion-- or mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI)-- can cause chronic migraines, depression, memory, and sleep problems that can last for years, referred to as post concussion syndrome (PCS).

Neuropsychologist and concussion survivor Dr. Diane Roberts Stoler is the authority on all aspects of the recovery process. Coping with Concussion and Mild Traumatic Brain Injury is a lifeline for patients, parents, and other caregivers.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Concussions are more common than most folks might imagine. While the majority of mild traumatic brain injuries are the result of motor vehicle accidents, other causes include falls, physical assault and abuse, athletic injuries, and blast injuries. Outcomes can be unpredictable: permanent symptoms, problems that come and go, or complete recovery. Post-concussion syndrome (PCS) is diagnosed when symptoms do not abate within two weeks of onset. Certified health and sports neuropsychologist Stoler, who is herself a brain-injured patient, and coauthor Hill thoroughly cover the treatment of PCS symptoms, including headache, fatigue, balance and coordination disturbances, chronic pain, reduced memory and concentration, sleep difficulty, and behavioral troubles. Financial and insurance issues, rehabilitation, family dynamics, and emotional problems are also addressed. Stoler and Hill provide a practical guide for individuals coping with concussion symptoms and a useful resource for family members and caregivers. The neuroplasticity of the human brain the organ's ability to regroup and rebuild is notable. Still, patience is paramount in the sphere of post-concussion syndrome.--Miksanek, Tony Copyright 2010 Booklist"
