The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that nearly 3.8 million incidences of sports-related concussions occur every year. That is a large number of individuals reporting concussions, and there are likely hundreds of concussions that go unreported. Physical therapy can be a key component to returning to your prior activity level following a concussion. Treatments can include vestibular interventions, balance retraining, proprioceptive training, neuromuscular re-education, joint mobilization, muscular facilitation, and so much more!
Since the symptoms of a concussion and post concussive syndrome are varied and patient-specific, physical therapy for one patient may look different to treatment for another patient despite similarities in the mechanism of injury. It is vital that you find a physical therapist willing to investigate your personal issues related to your concussion. Our Body Gears team is ready to take on that challenge!
