Suffering from a head injury is different from other bodily injuries, and the pain can be somewhat different too. Therefore, it’s extremely important that you seek out treatment from Premier Bone & Joint Centers at the first sign of any head pain, especially when caused by an injury. We have a team of board-certified and fellowship-trained doctors across Wyoming—including at our Rock Springs clinic—that can provide the care you need with our diagnostic services and treatment options.
Why Head Pain & Injuries Are So Serious
Head injuries are such serious conditions because many times they can go undetected if there is no visible sign of trauma, such as a wound or bruise. This is why it’s crucial for you to take notice of symptoms such as a headache, lightheadedness, spinning sensation, mild confusion, nausea, and temporary ringing in the ears—especially after experiencing some type of impact from a motor vehicle accident, fall, or contact sport like football. These symptoms can indicate a condition like a concussion, which can escalate if left untreated.
Common Types of Head Injuries
If you did recently suffer some sort of trauma to the head and you’re experiencing pain or the symptoms mentioned above, you could have developed a head injury such as:
- A hematoma
- A hemorrhage
- A concussion
- Edema (swelling of the brain)
- Skull fracture
