Types of concussion and dizziness we treat

Dizziness can be an indication of another condition, like one of these:

Inner ear disturbance

Your inner ear controls your body’s balance. An inner ear disturbance could be the cause of your sudden or recurring dizziness.

Vestibular migraines

This headache type doesn’t always come with pain but often includes symptoms like motion sensitivity and visual auras.

Low blood pressure

When your blood pressure is low, you might experience bouts of dizziness, especially when standing and changing direction.


Vertigo is a sensation that the world around you is moving or spinning, and is related to several conditions.

Symptoms of a concussion

  • How can I tell if I have a concussion?

    Concussions are the result of a head injury. If you’ve hit your head, had a fall, or been hit in the head with something, the following symptoms may indicate a concussion: headache, confusion, lack of coordination, memory loss, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, ringing in the ears, sleepiness, excessive fatigue, feeling sluggish, hazy, foggy, or groggy, sensitive to light or sound, or otherwise feeling unlike yourself.

  • What is a concussion?

    A concussion is a mild traumatic brain injury caused by a blow to the head. Concussions may affect both cognition and physical abilities. It takes time for the brain to heal and recover after a concussion.

  • How long will my concussion symptoms last?

    Most concussions will resolve themselves after about 14 days, but recovery time depends on the severity of the trauma and other factors.

Concussion & dizziness FAQs

  • When should I worry about dizziness?

    You should see your practitioner if you have recurrent, sudden, severe, or prolonged and unexplained dizziness or vertigo. Get emergency medical care if you experience new, severe dizziness or vertigo along with sudden, severe headache or chest pain.

  • Do all concussions heal on their own?

    Most concussions will heal themselves on their own, but a small percentage of concussions can have symptoms lasting for weeks or months. This is particularly true for older adults, children, and teens.

  • How can I decrease my risk of concussion?

    You can decrease your risk by always wearing a seatbelt, never driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, wearing a helmet while biking and playing contact sports, and getting an evaluation if you suffer from dizzy spells. This can help prevent falls, the leading cause of concussions.

    Concussions occur in about 10 percent of athletes and are commonly caused by falls both during sports and other activities.

  • What should I do when I feel dizzy?

    If you’re feeling dizzy, here are some ways to help steady yourself while you recover: Lie down until the dizziness passes, then get up slowly. Move slowly and carefully. Get plenty of rest. Drink plenty of fluids, especially water. And finally, avoid coffee, cigarettes, alcohol and drugs.

    About ten percent of athletes in contact sports experience concussions each year. While sports do increase the risk of concussions, they are most often caused by falls, which can happen during any number of activities.
