Concussion Help Diary Series
Why did I write this book?
During my years of practice I have spent a lot of time assessing and treating clients who have experienced a concussion. One of the most common things among them all is that the assessment process is difficult to get through. Not only is it draining on you to explain everything you went through to yet another person who is supposed to help you; but it is also traumatic to try to remember all the details over and over again.
Then you are expected to remember everything they teach you in that appointment right after you emotionally and physically drained yourself just explaining why you are there.
Concussion Help Diary will help you keep the most important
information about your injury in one organized place.
The book starts with helpful tips relevant to the first few
weeks after experiencing a concussion.
The injury, symptom, exercise and appointment diaries will help
you keep track of your experience and help you to accurately
describe it to your healthcare practitioners, family and coaches.
Post-Concussion Help Diary is a step by step guide to teach
concussion patients how to manage their symptoms and build a
rehabilitation team catered specifically to their needs in an
easy to understand format.
This book will explain what a concussion injury is, what symptoms are
typical, what might be causing them and who can help.
The diary section will prompt you to record important information
about your injury, doctors appointments, symptoms, headaches, sleep and
exercise so you can more easily share this information with your
medical team and coaches.
This book will help you start figuring out your puzzle piece by piece.
