Have you experienced a concussion? Unsure how you can stay active or return to your favorite activities? Discover how physical therapy for concussions can help!
Concussions are mild traumatic brain injuries caused by a blow to the head. Because symptoms and complications are unique to each individual, getting the right care is essential. At District Performance & Physio, we believe that individualized treatment plans based on thorough clinical examinations are the key to optimizing your recovery.
Our personalized concussion recovery plans always start with a thorough assessment to determine your status after experiencing a concussion. We pride ourselves in offering our patients exceptionally thorough interviews and exams. You can expect:
A thorough review of your injury story
Detailed neurological examination
Strength and range of motion testing
Functional movement testing
Initial treatment specialized to your impairments and goals
We help our patients recover from concussion better, faster. Here’s how physical therapy for concussions can help:
Traditional concussion severity tests and cookie-cutter plans aren’t enough anymore. For better results, you need a personal care plan that meets you where you really are.
A physical therapist can assess your concussion status and develop a plan based on your neurological symptoms to facilitate a safe and efficient recovery - getting you back to safe performance of your favorite activities.
Once a plan is in motion, it is important to be monitored by your trusted provider as you recover so the plan can be adjusted in sync with your recovery. At District Performance & Physio, we will work alongside your medical doctor or athletic coach to ensure your plan of care is optimized for safety and effectiveness.
Concussions are frustrating, but your treatment shouldn’t be
Recovering from your concussion can be challenging because the rate of recovery is highly variable from person to person and symptoms can affect your daily life. While most people will recover from their concussion within 1 week, 10-30% of people will experience prolonged or complex symptoms.
Your concussion symptoms may be more than just confusion or “brain fog”. In some cases your symptoms may include impaired speech, vision challenges, difficulty sleeping, emotional lability, and anxiety - all of which can make returning to your normal life activities more complicated.
At District Performance & Physio, our expert staff understand what you’re going through after experiencing a concussion, and we know that your symptoms may change day-to-day. That’s why we pride ourselves in offering empathetic treatments that are tailored to keep you comfortable and safe during your recovery.
