Many patients with neurological conditions like traumatic head injuries, stroke, Parkinson’s disease, dementia and epilepsy, develop psychological and psychiatric complications. After a mild traumatic brain injury, post- concussion symptoms can include headaches, dizziness, fatigue, irritability, sleep disturbances, memory difficulties, depression, concentration problems, anxiety, reduced thinking stamina or nausea. Chronic pain does not need to dominate a person’s life. By using appropriate strategies and interventions, a person’s experience of pain can be greatly reduced.
