Computerized Dynamic Posturography: A Historical ‘Concussion Predictor’

History

A male patient in his early 30s, seen in the University of Mississippi Medical Center clinic in the summer of 2019, had sustained a head injury above his left eyebrow from a snowboarding accident in December 2017. He presented in our clinic with primary complaints of lightheadedness on a weekly basis, room-spinning vertigo every couple of days, presyncope and syncope every so often, floaters in his vision, and daily imbalance.
