Head-on collisions – the type that can happen during sport play – can lead to potential consequences such as concussion. Concussion is a traumatic brain injury that can cause lasting effects on brain tissue and change the chemical balance of the brain.
That’s why it’s important to seek medical treatment immediately following any head injury to avoid the risk of serious complications. At Motion Dynamics, our physical therapists have the training to identify signs of concussion such as headache, dizziness, balance and coordination problems and slurred speech. After an initial period of rest, rehabilitation can begin.
Because no two concussions are the same, we will conduct a full examination in order to prescribe a routine that best addresses your symptoms. Treatments may include exercises to help you regain strength, endurance and balance, in addition to specialized massages to reduce headaches and other pains. As symptoms ease, we will gradually add normal activities and sports activity back into your daily routine.
If you are experiencing painful symptoms as a result of a concussion, we’re here to put you on the road to wellness. Give us a call today to get started.
