CONCUSSION PHSIOTHERAPY AND MANAGEMENT DOWNTOWN EDMONTON
A concussion is a mild traumatic brain injury that is often caused by an impact to the head, thereby affecting your brain functions. The effects of a concussion are largely temporary, but may take anywhere from days to years for the healing process to be completed. Our physiotherapists at In Step Physical Therapy will help analyse your symptoms and create a treatment plan that would focus on problem areas. Physical therapy plays a very important role in the care of concussions.
PROBLEMS THAT MAY BE CAUSED BY CONCUSSIONS:
- Sleep Disturbances
- Blurred Vision
- Slurred Speech
- Behavioural Changes
- Seizures or Convulsions
- Moodiness and Irritability
- Issues with Concentration
Concussions may cause one or many of the above-mentioned symptoms, and not all individuals heal at the same pace. Physiotherapists are trained professionals who exercise their best judgment to integrate training and skill to arrive at an appropriate treatment plan that is invariably individualized through evidence-based practices. The physiotherapist will begin with a detailed initial assessment, and also establish a long-term education plan so that each patient is enriched with optimal care that helps restore you from any possible long-term effects.
