Concussions- Tailoring the Treatment Plan
Recovering from a concussion can be a challenging journey, but with the guidance of your physiotherapist, you will be well-supported along the way. In this blog, we will explore the world of physiotherapy concussion treatment and what you can expect during this critical phase of your recovery.
Based on the findings from the concussion assessment, your physiotherapist will develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to your unique needs.
The treatment plan may include:
Manual Therapy: Soft tissue techniques, range of motion exercises and joint mobilizations can be a valuable component of the treatment plan for concussions. These techniques play a vital role in helping to alleviate pain associated with restricted movement and muscle tightness and can help enhance joint mobility, allowing you to move more freely and comfortably.
Vestibular/Visual Rehabilitation: If vestibular dysfunction is detected, specialized exercises will be prescribed to improve balance, reduce dizziness, and improve tolerance to headaches.
Balance and Coordination Exercises: Specific exercises will help improve balance and coordination, promoting a safe return to daily activities.
Cognitive Rehabilitation: Techniques to enhance memory, attention, and problem-solving may be included to aid cognitive recovery.
Gradual Return to Activity: A step-by-step plan will be outlined to gradually reintroduce physical and cognitive activities into your daily life.
