A concussion, also referred to as a mild traumatic brain injury, occurs following a direct or indirect impact to the head. Concussions can also result from a shaking or rapid movement of the head or body.
For many individuals, symptoms occur within the first 7 to 10 days and resolve completely within 2 to 4 weeks of the date of the initial injury.
Post-concussion syndrome is a complex disorder in which one or many symptoms of a concussion — such as headaches or dizziness among others — persist for weeks, months, and sometimes years following the initial injury that caused the concussion.
Post-concussion physiotherapy seeks to identify the underlying problems and triggers that linger following the initial concussion. Your physiotherapist will design personalized treatments and a home exercise program to slowly stimulate your brain to adapt and heal in order to decrease and eventually eliminate any remaining signs and symptoms.
