The Benefits of Physical Therapy Following a Concussion

A concussion is a traumatic brain injury that should always be taken seriously, regardless of whether it is mild of severe. The effects of a concussion can linger for months at a time, causing headaches, dizziness, and various other symptoms. Although cognitive therapy is important following a concussion, many people often wonder, can physical therapy help my symptoms as well?

There are indeed several benefits of physical therapy for concussion victims, which can lessen symptoms and improve day-to-day wellbeing. A skilled physical therapist can examine your neurological, orthopedic, and cardiovascular systems, and prescribe treatments that benefit your entire body in a holistic way. Once the rest of your body starts to feel better, your brain will start to feel better, too, and you’ll be on a faster road to recover.

With the help of a physical therapist, you may be able to receive concussion treatments that:

  • Restore strength
  • Stop dizziness
  • Improve balance
  • Reduce headaches
  • Increase daily endurance

Board-certified clinical physical therapists may also be able to provide additional assistance tailored to your specific injury. Some physical therapists even specialize in vestibular and neurological rehabilitation focus, designed specifically to heal your head and brain.
