Physical Therapist Services for Concussion
A concussion is a traumatic brain injury that can cause lasting effects on brain tissue and change the chemical balance of the brain.
A physical therapist can assess symptoms to determine if a concussion is present, and treat the injury by guiding the patient through a safe and individualized recovery program.
Because no 2 concussions are the same, a physical therapist will examine your neurological, orthopedic, and cardiovascular systems to prescribe a routine to address your particular symptoms and your needs in all of your daily environments.
Physical therapists are movement experts who improve quality of life through hands-on care, patient education, and prescribed movement. You can contact a physical therapist directly for an evaluation. To find a physical therapist in your area, visit Find a PT.
