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 two concussions are the same, a physical therapist will examine your neurological, orthopedic, and cardiovascular systems to assess how your concussion is affecting you. They will design a treatment plan to address your particular symptoms, needs, and goals for returning to home, school, work, and athletic activities.
Physical therapists are movement experts. They 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.
