Concussion Management

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
  • Confusion
  • A lack of coordination
  • Balance problems
  • Memory loss
  • Nausea and/or vomiting
  • Dizziness
  • Ringing in your ears (tinnitus)
  • Sleepiness
  • Extreme fatigue

If you experienced an incident that may have caused a concussion, even without symptoms, it could be best to have an assessment.

If you have suffered a concussion, physiotherapy at Amari Physiotherapy & Massage in Surrey can help you with:

  • Balance
  • Focus
  • Stability
  • Gait
  • Mood
  • Strengthening neck muscles
  • Ensuring you have good mobility in your joints and surrounding soft tissues
