The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates nearly 3.8 million incidences of sports-related concussions occur every year. That is a large number of individuals reporting concussions, and there are hundreds of concussions that are unreported. Physical therapy can be a key component to your return to prior level activity. Physical therapy after a concussion includes 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 than treatment for another patient despite the similarities in mechanism of injury.
