Concussion Management

Concussion Symptoms

A concussion occurs when an indirect or direct force to the head which causes a marked change in psychological condition. During a concussion, both the brain and the spinal cord are demanding much less energy than they are receiving. As a result, it may result in concussion symptoms like memory loss, disorientation, and confusion.

Oftentimes, concussion symptoms can also be:

  • Fatigue
  • Nausea
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Headache

Concussion Treatment

Concussion treatment begins with the proper diagnosis from a concussion specialist. At Pillars of Wellness, our physiotherapists and occupational therapists are certified and trained to treat concussions or brain injuries. They can also conduct a cognitive health assessment.

The cognitive health assessment is very important to do as it will help identify which area of your cognitive functions are deficit. Then, the rehabilitation process can start based on the findings and the symptoms.

A concussion treatment will include cognitive testing, balance exercises, visual exercises, and physical reintegration, as well as treating the cervical (neck).
