Concussion Management at Amari Physiotherapy & Massage in Surrey
Did you know that you don’t need to bump your head to get a concussion? And that a concussion is actually a type of brain injury? Historically, even the medical profession has not taken concussions very seriously. But the physiotherapists at Amari Physiotherapy & Massage in Surrey take concussion management very seriously.
Some patients have a concussion diagnosis, whereas others suspect they might have one. Fortunately, the physiotherapists at Amari Physiotherapy & Massage in Surrey can assess your condition.
Your physiotherapist will develop a safe, customized care program to support your healing journey if you have a concussion. Without treatment, a concussion can cause short- or long-term mental, emotional, and physical symptoms.
What Causes Concussions?
The most common causes of concussions are injuries sustained in a car accident, a sports accident, work accidents, or in children, playground accidents. It could also be the result of a violent attack.
Concussion recovery must be managed over several weeks to several months, depending on the severity of the injury.
How Do I Know if I Have a Concussion?
Most people who have a concussion can trace back to an event, but if they lose consciousness or even if not, they may not remember what caused their concussion. Symptoms may not start for a day or two, so you may need someone else to help you trace back your symptoms to what happened.
Everyone with a concussion doesn’t get all the symptoms, but you may experience:
- Headaches or migraines
- A lack of coordination
- Balance problems
- Memory loss
- Nausea and/or vomiting
- Ringing in your ears (tinnitus)
- Extreme fatigue
If you experienced an incident that may have caused a concussion, even without symptoms, it could be best to have an assessment.
