Concussion Management

Concussion Management

Your brain has soft, sensitive tissue within a fluid surrounded by your skull. Even with all of these protective mechanisms, a bump, blow, jolt, or hit to the bosy that causes the head and brain to move back and forth can lead to a concussion. Although considered mild, concussions need to be taken very seriously.

Some common symptoms of a concussion include:

  • Nausea
  • Dizziness
  • Headache
  • Confusion
  • Memory problems
  • Fatigue

Grandview Physiotherapy is committed to providing comprehensive and effective concussion management services to support individuals in their recovery journey. Concussions are complex injuries that require specialized care, and our experienced team of physiotherapists is dedicated to delivering personalized and evidence-based treatment plans.

Assessment and Diagnosis

Our first step in concussion management is a thorough assessment to understand the specific nature and extent of the injury. Our skilled physiotherapists use a combination of clinical evaluation, neurocognitive testing, and symptom monitoring to treat concussions accurately. We can customize treatment plans to fit the particular requirements of every patient thanks to this all-encompassing approach.

Individualized Treatment Plans

At Grandview Physiotherapy, we recognize that no two concussions are alike. We design individualized treatment plans that consider each patient’s specific symptoms, challenges, and goals. Our physiotherapists collaborate closely with other healthcare professionals, such as neurologists and sports medicine specialists, to ensure a holistic and multidisciplinary approach to concussion management.

Concussion symptoms can vary widely and may include headaches, dizziness, visual disturbances, and cognitive difficulties. Our team uses a range of strategies to treat these symptoms successfully. These may include vestibular rehabilitation, which focuses on addressing issues related to balance and coordination, and visual and cognitive exercises to promote recovery.

Gradual Return to Activity

A crucial aspect of concussion management is guiding individuals to return to regular activities gradually. Our physiotherapists collaborate closely with patients to create detailed plans that consider both mental and physical strain. This approach ensures a safe and sustainable return to work, school, and recreational activities, minimizing the risk of symptom recurrence.

Concussion recovery is a dynamic process that may require ongoing support. At Grandview Physiotherapy, we communicate openly with patients and adjust treatment plans as needed. Our goal is to help individuals not only recover from their concussions but also to build resilience and prevent future injuries.
