ABOUT THE SERVICE

Concussion Physiotherapy Redwater

Concussions, often arising from sports injuries, falls, accidents, or any blow to the head, can lead to a diverse array of symptoms that range from physical to cognitive and emotional. These symptoms can disrupt daily activities, hamper your productivity, and significantly reduce the quality of your life. At Redwater Physiotherapy Clinic, we understand the multifaceted nature of concussions and their wide-ranging impact on individuals’ lives. That is why we have a specialized program – Concussion Physiotherapy – aimed at helping those affected by this brain injury navigate their path to recovery.

A concussion is more than just a ‘bump on the head.’ It is a complex physiological process that affects the brain, caused by traumatic biomechanical forces. It involves the brain’s structure and functions, leading to various signs and symptoms that can emerge immediately after the injury or after some time. Unfortunately, concussions are often misunderstood or overlooked due to the invisible nature of these symptoms.

Our team at Redwater Physiotherapy Clinic is dedicated to providing compassionate, expert care for individuals recovering from concussions. We view each patient as a unique individual with distinct symptoms and challenges. Our Concussion Physiotherapy Redwater program is designed to address these unique needs, aiding in the recovery process and helping individuals return to their usual activities safely and effectively. With our help, you don’t have to navigate the complexities of a concussion on your own.

HOW WE HELP!

Our Complete Concussion Management program caters to individuals who have experienced a concussion due to sports injuries, accidents, falls, or any other cause. The symptoms of a concussion can be quite varied and can affect both physical and cognitive functions. If you’re experiencing any of the following symptoms, you may benefit from concussion physiotherapy:

  • Persistent headaches or migraines
  • Dizziness or vertigo
  • Difficulties with balance and coordination
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Fatigue or excessive sleepiness
  • Difficulty concentrating or memory problems
  • Sensitivity to light or noise
  • Mental health issues, such as irritability, depression, or anxiety
  • Sleep disturbances, including insomnia or sleeping more than usual
  • Blurry or double vision

In concussion therapy, the assessment and therapeutic techniques are often multifaceted and patient-specific, designed to address the broad range of symptoms and complications resulting from a concussion. At Redwater Physiotherapy Clinic, here’s how we approach these aspects: We kickstart your recovery journey with an in-depth assessment to understand the full impact of the concussion on your health and daily life.

  • Physical Examination: This includes an evaluation of balance, coordination, strength, and flexibility. A visual and vestibular system assessment may also be conducted depending on the symptoms.
  • Neurocognitive Testing: To evaluate cognitive functions affected by the concussion, such as memory, attention, and reaction time.
  • Symptom Evaluation: A comprehensive review of the patient’s symptoms, their frequency, duration, severity, and how they impact daily life.
  • Medical History Review: Including the details of the injury, previous concussions, and any other relevant health information.

Based on this evaluation, we craft a personalized treatment plan, which may involve a variety of therapeutic approaches, including:

  • Manual Therapy: This can help to alleviate headaches and neck pain often associated with concussions. Techniques can include soft tissue mobilization, joint mobilization, and trigger point therapy.
  • Vestibular Rehabilitation Therapy: Used to address problems with balance and dizziness. It includes specific exercises designed to retrain the brain’s ability to recognize and process signals from the vestibular system and coordinates them with information from the eyes, muscles, and joints.
  • Visual Rehabilitation: Exercises designed to improve eye coordination and focusing if these have been affected by the concussion.
  • Cognitive Rehabilitation: Strategies and exercises to help improve cognitive functions like memory, concentration, and problem-solving.
  • Exercise Therapy: Graduated exercise programs are often integral to concussion rehab. They help improve physical fitness, promote a sense of well-being, and help the brain recover.
  • Education and Advice: Providing information about concussions and their effects, advice on managing symptoms, return to activity guidelines, and strategies to prevent future concussions.

In essence, concussion therapy at Redwater Physiotherapy Clinic involves a comprehensive, multifaceted approach tailored to each individual’s needs, aiming for a safe and effective recovery.
