What is a concussion?
A concussion is a traumatic brain injury that affects brain function and may produce various symptoms. These symptoms may include headaches, blurred vision, difficulty concentrating, nausea, mood swings, dizziness, and problems with memory, balance, and coordination. A blow to the head or a sudden jolt to the upper body are common causes of a concussion. The most frequent culprits are falls or contact sports like football or soccer. However, they can be caused by any blow to the head, whether in a sport, at work, or in a car accident.
How can physical therapy help with concussion rehabilitation?
Physical therapy plays a crucial role in concussion rehabilitation, especially when problems with vision, vestibular, or cervical spine function are present. At STAR Physical Therapy, we take a personalized approach to concussion rehabilitation. Our team of expert clinicians will perform a comprehensive evaluation to determine the severity of concussion symptoms. They will establish a baseline and design a concussion rehabilitation program to address deficits. We work closely with each patient to develop a treatment tailored to their unique needs by considering their age, overall health, and lifestyle goals. Our Concussion Rehabilitation Program may include the following:
- Assistance with the management of symptoms and how to progress patients back to full participation at work, school, and sports
- Vestibular Rehabilitation addresses dizziness and balance issues.
- Visual Rehabilitation addresses vision-related problems.
- Cervical Spine Rehabilitation to address neck pain or stiffness.
- Exercise Therapy to improve physical function.
- Education and counseling to help patients understand the injury and develop strategies to prevent re-injury.
