Our practitioners have extensive training in the treatment and rehabilitation of concussion and post-concussion symptoms such as ongoing headaches, balance/dizziness issues, visual disturbances, reading difficulties, trouble concentrating and visual motion sensitivity.
Research shows that early intervention of various therapies can significantly improve recovery. For example, while relative physical and cognitive rest is important in the initial stages (24 – 48 hours), evidence shows that guided sub-symptom threshold physical activity as early as 5-10 days following a concussion can support recovery and reduce the chances of a prolonged recovery by 50% alone. This can help to resolve symptoms and restore blood flow abnormalities.
Our standard of care includes up to 48 hours of relative physical and cognitive rest before starting a gradual return to light cognitive activities. Further, physical treatment and rehabilitation may begin as early as 5-10 days after a concussion. Our recognized practitioners work closely with patients to develop a personal approach to concussion care, and avoid cognitive or physical activities that may make symptoms worse. Generally, the earlier you start the better, but treatment can be effective months to years after injury.
