Running Analysis
Concussion Rehabilitatio

The CDC estimates roughly 1.6 to 3.8 million people experience concussions as a result of sport or recreational activity each year. A concussion is a traumatic brain injury that can cause both short and long-term issues with cognitive and behavioral function. Evidence indicates that after 3-4 months, concussion symptoms are harder to reverse than if treated sooner. Waiting for healing alone to address symptoms is strongly discouraged.

How Physical Therapy can help:

After a concussion, you may experience:

  • Headaches
  • Dizziness
  • Light and/or noise sensitivity
  • Double and/or blurred vision
  • Difficulty thinking and/or concentrating
  • Fatigue
  • Drowsiness
  • Balance deficits

Research has proven that light aerobic exercise is extremely beneficial in restoring cerebral blood flow to the brain. This is an integral step in concussion recovery and should be conducted under the guidance of a professional.
