Concussion/Mild Traumatic Brain Injury - When Will I Recover ?

Dr. Rebekah Mannix is an emergency room physician and concussion researcher at Boston Children's Hospital.

Dr. Mannix works on the frontlines when it comes to dealing with concussions/mild traumatic brain injuries.

In a recent interview published in the May 6, 2013, edition of the  New York Times, Dr. Mannix waded in on the issue of the medical profession's ability to predict how a specific person will recover from a concussion/mild traumatic brain injury:

" Head injury in general is a strangely archaic field"... "There is no predicability. I cannot say to patient A., 'You are going to be fine in a week.' I cannot say to patient B, 'You are going to be really sick for three months."

This coming from a doctor who deals with concussions/mild traumatic brain injury day in and day out.

So. When will you recover from the concussion/mild traumatic brain injury you suffered in your car accident ? Will it be a week, a month, a year or ever ?

The truth of the matter is that, in your particular case, medical science is unable to say.

All that your  doctor can do is quote statistics and averages.
