hello world!

Diagnosed with a concussion? You may need a physical therapist.

Physical therapy should start immediately after a concussion and be targeted to the individual patient. All RETURN TO PLAY PROTOCOLS are developed for each child separately with that child's goals in mind. Have questions? Just call!

A concussion is a type of traumatic brain injury or TBI caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head or by a hit to the body that causes the head and brain to move rapidly back and forth. This sudden movement can cause the brain to bounce around or twist in the skull, creating chemical changes in the brain and sometimes stretching and damaging brain cells.

Experiencing symptoms like...

  • Headache or “pressure” in head.
  • Nausea or vomiting.
  • Balance problems or dizziness, or double or blurry vision.
  • Bothered by light or noise.
  • Feeling sluggish, hazy, foggy, or groggy.
  • Confusion, or concentration or memory problems.
  • Just not “feeling right,” or “feeling down"

Physical therapists can evaluate and treat many common problems related to concussions.

Because no two concussions are the same, a physical therapist will examine your neurological, orthopedic, and cardiovascular systems in order to best prescribe a routine to address your particular symptoms and your needs in all of your daily environments.
