Concussion Therapy

What is a concussion?

A concussion is a mild traumatic brain injury usually resulting from a blow to the head. It is vital to find a specialist that can decide when someone has completely recovered from a concussion and is safe to resume school, childcare, work, and sports. Despite the prevalence of concussions, each individual presents with unique symptoms and has varied recovery times.


What is post concussion syndrome?

Post concussion syndrome is a prolonged recovery from a concussion. Post concussion symptoms can include, but are not limited to dizziness, imbalance, headaches, confusion, memory problems, nausea/ vomiting, sleepiness, sleep changes, foggy-headedness.

While concussion symptoms may take days, weeks, or even years to resolve, the physical, emotional, and mental consequences of post-concussion syndrome are gaining awareness. However, concussions are quite treatable with the right specialist and medical team.


How can concussion therapy help?

Your treatment plan starts with a thorough physical exam, interview, and past medical history intake. Based on your symptoms and exam findings, we prescribe the appropriate exercises, treatments, referrals and protocols that will get you back to normal as soon as possible. Specialized concussion therapy addresses the individualized goals and needs of each person.
