A concussion occurs when the brain is jolted and hits the inside of the skull. This can happen during sport, car accident, a fall, or any trauma to the head. When the brain is injured, it can significantly impair balance, memory, mood, speech, and other cognitive motor skills. The symptoms may be temporary and go away on their own. But when a more severe concussion goes untreated, or mistreated, symptoms can worsen and be permanent.
The good news is, in recent days, the medical community is paying much more attention to concussions. Professional and collegiate sports leagues have heavily invested in concussion research and prevention. More and more people are diligently wearing helmets during sport and activity. And there are many more resources available for patients. Best of all, many more people are choosing to get proper medical help for concussion.
Concussion treatment options can include rest, self-care, medications, and physical therapy. With physical therapy, we can use vestibular rehabilitation to essentially get the brain to heal itself. We call this neuroplasticity … and the results can be astounding.
