Postconcussion Syndrome Treatments

Treatment

PCS treatment depends on your symptoms. Talk with your doctor about the best treatment plan for you. Treatment options include the following:

Medications

  • Over-the-counter medications to reduce the severity of headaches
  • Antidepressants to help reduce depression and anxiety
  • Nerve blocks to relieve severe, nerve-injury induced pain/headaches

Psychological Treatment

  • Talking with a mental health professional about the problems you are having related to PCS
  • Learning how to cope with those problems in your life

Vocational Therapy

  • Learning skills and training to start or resume a career

Neurotherapy

Neurotherapy (also called biofeedback) is a painless treatment using computers to help you learn how to modify your brainwaves to improve attention and memory.

Surgery

In some cases, a collection of blood in an area of bruising on the brain may require surgery, which may help resolve or improve symptoms.
