What Is a Concussion?
A concussion is a type of traumatic brain injury that occurs when the brain is shaken or jolted inside the skull. This can be caused by a blow to the head, a fall, or any other type of injury that causes the brain to move rapidly back and forth, a concussion can also be caused by an indirect blow to the head.
Concussions can range from mild to severe and can cause a wide range of symptoms, including headache, dizziness, nausea, confusion, and loss of consciousness. Symptoms may appear immediately after the injury or may develop over several hours or days.
If you or someone you know has suffered a concussion, working with a physiotherapist who specializes in concussions can help with recovery and returning to your everyday activities. Our concussion physiotherapists at Honsberger Physio+ can help you every step of the way.
How Can Physiotherapy Help With a Concussion?
Physiotherapy can play an important role in concussion rehabilitation. A physiotherapist can assess and address the physical, cognitive, and emotional symptoms that may occur following a concussion.
Your treatment plan may include exercises to improve balance, coordination, and strength, as well as techniques to reduce headaches, dizziness, and visual disturbances. Your concussion physiotherapist may also provide education on rest and activity management, along with ways to prevent future injuries.
A gradual return to physical activity or sports may be recommended once symptoms have improved and a specific protocol has been followed. Our concussion physiotherapists will help you know what to do so you don’t overexert yourself but still work towards full recovery.
Concussion physiotherapy can be a valuable tool in concussion rehabilitation, helping individuals to safely and effectively return to their daily activities and sports. Our concussion physiotherapy options include:
Baseline Concussion Test
We take a proactive approach to concussion management that sets new benchmarks for baseline testing standards. By combining active movement, balance and coordination with advanced neurocognitive technology, we can effectively measure reaction time, memory, concentration and processing skills, so that if you are injured, you can return to work, school or play safely.
Our integrated, whole-body rehabilitation approach combines physiotherapy and advanced neurocognitive technology to effectively recover from a head injury. Avoid extended or long-term damage through vision training, balance, spinal/structural alignment, soft tissue movement pattern and cognitive response training.
Who Should Seek Physiotherapy For a Concussion?
Anyone who has suffered a concussion should consider seeking physiotherapy as part of their recovery plan. This includes individuals of all ages and levels of physical activity, from children and adolescents to athletes and seniors. While many people may recover within a month of their injury, concussions that last beyond a month are often the best fit for therapy.
