Concussion Screening and Treatment

What is a concussion? A concussion occurs when there is a direct impact or an inertial force on the head that suddenly impairs neurological function and results in cognitive symptoms. Concussions can have serious implications for performance in sport, school, work, and other activities of daily life. Concussion rehabilitation is an important and growing sector of health care that requires proper management for optimal recovery. At Huronia Physiotherapy and Chiropractic Clinic, we have the ability to conduct thorough concussion-screening assessments. Based on the results of the assessment and the most current research in the field, our clinicians will devise an appropriate rehabilitation program.

A concussion management program will typically begin with a short period of cognitive rest, followed by progressive exercises to improve vestibular function, postural control, balance, and aerobic capacity. Over time, our therapists will help prepare you for return to school, work, or play; depending on your needs and goals.
