What is Concussion Therapy?

Concussion care

Concussion therapy typically involves a combination of rest, gradual return to activity, symptom management, and, in some cases, specialized rehabilitation exercises. The primary goal of concussion therapy is to help individuals recover fully and safely from a concussion, which is a mild traumatic brain injury caused by a blow or jolt to the head.

Common Elements of Concussion Therapy

Here are some common elements of concussion therapy:

Initially, a period of physical and cognitive rest is often recommended to allow the brain to heal. As symptoms improve, a gradual return to daily activities, school, work, and exercise is typically advised. This process should be guided by a healthcare professional and tailored to the individual’s symptoms and recovery progress.
For individuals experiencing cognitive difficulties (such as memory problems, difficulty concentrating, or mental fog), cognitive rehabilitation exercises may be recommended. These exercises can help improve cognitive function over time.
Sometimes, individuals with concussions experience physical symptoms like balance problems or dizziness. Physical therapy or vestibular rehabilitation exercises may be prescribed to address these issues.
Concussions can affect visual function, leading to issues like blurred vision, double vision or difficulty focusing. Vision therapy performed by a specialized physical therapist or neuro-optometrist may be recommended to address these visual problems.
For athletes, a step-by-step protocol known as a “return-to-play” progression is often followed under the guidance of healthcare professionals. This protocol involves a gradual increase in physical activity levels to ensure the individual can safely return to sports without risking re-injury.

Frequently Asked Questions About Concussion Care

  • What symptoms and issues can physiotherapy help with after a concussion?

    Physiotherapy plays a crucial role in addressing various symptoms after a concussion, including headaches, dizziness, balance problems, and cognitive difficulties. We specialize in creating customized treatment plans to alleviate these symptoms, improve function, and support your overall recovery.

  • How soon after a concussion should I seek physiotherapy care?

    It's advisable to seek physiotherapy care as soon as possible after a concussion. Early intervention can help in managing symptoms more effectively and preventing potential complications. If you've recently experienced a concussion or are noticing persistent symptoms, don't hesitate to schedule a consultation for a comprehensive assessment.

  • What does a concussion assessment involve, and how long does it take?

    Our concussion assessments are thorough and may include a review of your medical history, a neurological examination, balance and coordination tests, and cognitive assessments. The duration can vary, but we aim to provide a comprehensive evaluation within a reasonable timeframe. This helps us tailor your treatment plan to your specific needs.

  • Do I need a doctor's referral to receive physiotherapy for a concussion?

    In many cases, you don't need a doctor's referral to seek physiotherapy for a concussion. You can directly schedule an appointment with us. However, if your insurance or specific circumstances require a referral, we can guide you through the process and work collaboratively with your healthcare team for the best possible care.

  • How long does it typically take to recover from a concussion with physiotherapy?

    The recovery time varies for each individual and depends on the severity of the concussion and other factors. Physiotherapy aims to facilitate a gradual and safe return to normal activities. During our sessions, we'll monitor your progress closely and adjust the treatment plan as needed. The goal is to support your full recovery and improve your overall well-being.

It’s important to note that every concussion is unique, and the specific therapy and recovery plan should be tailored to each individual’s symptoms and needs. Healthcare professionals, such as physicians, neurologists, physical therapists, and other specialists, play a critical role in managing and guiding concussion therapy.

 

If you or someone you know has sustained a concussion, it’s essential to seek medical evaluation and follow the advice of healthcare professionals for proper management and recovery.

My therapist is kind and understanding. She takes the time to explain the therapy and why its beneficial for me. She gives me the opportunity to hold myself accountable but helps me understand the importance of doing the exercises on my own. I love it here! I have felt welcomed since the first day.
