Concussion Management at Aldergrove Physiotherapy
Even if you didn’t bump your head, you could have a concussion. Concussions are really brain injuries. Concussions have been disregarded and ignored by many. But the physiotherapists at Aldergrove Physiotherapy take concussion management very seriously.
It doesn’t matter if you have a diagnosis for a concussion or suspect you have one. Our physiotherapists will immediately complete a thorough assessment of your symptoms. Your physiotherapist will develop a safe, customized care program to support your healing journey if you have a concussion. Concussions can cause short- and long-term physical, mental, and emotional problems if not treated properly.
What Causes Concussions?
Most concussions are caused by car accidents, work accidents, sports accidents, or violent attacks. Children can get a concussion in a playground accident.
Concussion recovery must be managed over several weeks to several months, depending on the severity of the injury.
Do You Have a Concussion?
Most people who have a concussion can trace back to an event, but if they lose consciousness or even if not, they may not remember what caused their concussion. Symptoms may not start for a day or two, so you may need someone else to help you trace back your symptoms to what happened.
Every concussion is somewhat unique, so you may not have all of these symptoms.
- Headaches or migraines
- A lack of coordination
- Balance problems
- Memory loss
- Nausea and/or vomiting
- Ringing in your ears (tinnitus)
- Extreme fatigue
If you experienced an incident that may have caused a concussion, even without symptoms, it could be best to have an assessment.
