Concussions often resolve within a short period of time following the injury, but some may last up to a month or longer.
Post-concussion syndrome (PCS) is when concussion-related symptoms continue to persist beyond the expected recovery period.
At Hawkesbury Therapy, we provide a comprehensive approach to treatment that includes physical rehabilitation for the neck, vestibular-ocular rehabilitation, and exercise.
- Physical rehabilitation for the neck involves therapeutic techniques that are designed to reduce pain, improve range of motion and joint function, and increase strength and stability of the neck, as irritating neck symptoms may be contributing to headaches and/or dizziness
- Vestibular-Ocular Rehabilitation consists of a series of exercises done at home and in clinic to address symptoms of dizziness, vertigo, and visual disturbances caused by dysfunction of the vestibular and/or visual systems.
- Rehabilitation through exercise involves a tailored and controlled exercise program to promote and maintain an active lifestyle without aggravating concussion-related symptoms.
