Concussion Management

Concussion Management

A concussion is a mild or severe traumatic brain injury (TBI) that may be caused by a sudden jolt or blow to the head. The injury can occur due to a sport activity, motor vehicle accident or a slip and fall. If the concussion is left unchecked, the injury can lead to brain swelling or bleeding. That’s why concussion management is needed to prevent this.

At Pathway Physiotherapy, concussion management starts with a series of tests, including neurological baseline examination, cognitive testing, and on-going treatment. These are necessary to evaluate how much the head injury affected the person’s reflexes, coordination, memory, concentration, balance, vision, strength, reflexes, and more.

Getting an in-depth assessment of the head injury can help our therapist give the proper treatment and care, leading to a faster recovery.
