Rest is no longer considered the best option for the management of concussions or post concussion syndrome, and it is recommended to work with a multidisciplinary team that are able to address your symptoms.
Physiotherapy is an important part of the team and focuses on the assessment and treatment of:
Cervical musculoskeletal impairments (eg neck pain, headaches, dizziness, postural control).
Vestibulo-oculomotor impairments (eg dizziness, balance problems, blurred vision, nausea, sensitivity to light & sound, etc).
Autonomic dysfunction & Exertional intolerance (eg fatigue).
Motor function impairments (eg balance, coordination, multitasking).
If you have recently had a concussion incident, or are struggling with ongoing symptoms related to a concussion, there are lots of management options available and we encourage you to work with a team of professionals to help address your issues.
