Physical therapists can evaluate and treat many problems related to concussion. Because no two concussions are the same, a physical therapist will examine your neurological, orthopedic, and cardiovascular systems in order to best prescribe a routine to address your particular symptoms and your needs in all of your daily environments. Physical therapists can help by the following:
- Determining appropriate rest and activity for recovery.
- Restoring strength and endurance.
- Stopping dizziness and improving balance
- Reducing headaches
- Returning to normal activity or sport*
Concussions are multi-factorial and can present a variety of different ways. Let us help you manage your specific symptoms and help you to return safely to your hobbies and activities!
