Concussion Rehab in Calgary,AB
A concussion is a type of traumatic brain injury (TBI) caused by a blow to the head or by a hit to the body that causes the head and brain to move rapidly back or forth.
Getting an assessment done early within the initial 48 hours is recommended to improve the outcome and avoid persistent symptoms. Talk to our experienced physiotherapist today and know how we can help you.
Common concussion symptoms include:
- Noise or light sensitivity
- Sleepiness or fatigue
- Memory loss and feeling of "slowed down."
- Difficulty concentrating
- The feeling of emotional, sadness, irritable or nervousness
concussion is more common than you think. We will screen all our car accident patients for this and provide help and awareness so you can reach your maximum recovery. Many people do not seek help for concussions and are left undiagnosed, living with the pain silently.
While the originating concussion problems can be difficult to identify if you did not hit your head, many conservative treatments can make a huge difference in the intensity and frequency of symptoms. Talk to one of our physical therapists at Radiant Physiotherapy Clinic, who specializes in treating concussions today, and begin your journey to find relief.
At Radiant Physiotherapy Clinic, we will do a thorough evaluation to screen your vision, vestibular, and neck (c-spine). If needed, we will redirect and refer to proper care such as neuro-psychologist, neuro-ophthalmologist and will keep your family physician in the loop.
We are up to date with new information and research about concussion rehab and will provide continued education regularly and a holistic approach to treatment. We are here to help you achieve your goal during recovery from a concussion.
