Post Concussion Rehabilitation

Post Concussion Syndrome Rehabilitation

Concussion can be described as a blow to the head. A concussion causes a shaking or jarring of the brain inside the skull. This can be a frightening situation for the person suffering from the concussion and their families.

At ProCare we have designed a program to effectively progress an athlete to return safely to the game he/she loves. We will guide your child through a progressive exercise program and continue to increase the exertion levels of performance based on our daily assessment.

Symptoms of Post Concussion

  • Headache
  • Dizziness (lightheadedness)
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Difficulty focusing
  • Decreased tolerance to exercise

How Can Physical Therapy Help?

Post Concussive Rehabilitation will utilize treatment techniques such as:

  • Return to Sport Protocol: required when an athlete returns to his/her sport after suffering a concussion
  • Vestibular Ocular Exercises: to address dizziness and focus dysfunction
  • Postural & Core Strengthening
  • Education & Self Management
