Concussion Rehab Therapy
Our physiotherapists are trained in providing Concussion Rehab Therapy. This therapy often requires a multidisciplinary approach that involves exercise therapy, education and reassurance, diet and nutritional interventions, vestibular rehab therapy, visual rehabilitation, and manual therapy. We consult with other competent providers (e.g., physicians, psychologists, occupational therapists, and exercise therapists) in your health-care team and collaborate as needed to help relieve your concussion symptoms.
Physiotherapists are trained in carrying comprehensive assessments. Assessments can screen for a concussion, conduct a physiotherapy differential diagnosis (e.g., Migraine, Hypoglycemia, or Heat Illness), and screen for signs of more serious pathology (e.g., Traumatic Brain Injury) or conditions that may require referral to a physician or other health care practitioners.
