Auto accidents can cause injuries to the neck, back, shoulders, extremities and head.  Unfortunately, this also includes brain injuries, which are much more common in wrecks than previously thought.  Concussions (mild traumatic brain injuries) happen when the brain hits the inside of the skull.  This can cause numerous symptoms, including: headache, blurred vision, ringing in the ears, anxiety, rapid mood swings, depression, aggressiveness and more.  Many times, a person’s significant other is the one who can best help identify if/when these symptoms are present.  Be sure to tell your health care practitioner about these symptoms so proper treatment can be sought, if needed.  Call 503-235-7130 to schedule an appointment with Dr. Hartwig to learn more.
