Concussion management program

A concussion is a traumatic brain injury that disrupts normal brain function and can take significant time to heal. Concussions can be caused by a blow to the head or when the head and upper body are violently shaken, such as from impact during sports or a motor vehicle accident.

When a person experiences protracted recovery time, intervention for a concussion trained physician, neuropsychologist and/or physical therapist may be necessary. A concussion does not just delay your return to sports, but can also delay your return to school and work.

Post-concussion rehabilitation is performed by a physical therapist who will perform a thorough orthopedic assessment including evaluation of your cervical/thoracic spine as well as your core/postural strength. Additionally, an assessment will be performed to evaluate your ability to track objects and your eye movements for reading and writing. The physical therapist will also evaluate your balance, which is commonly affected after a concussion.

The impact test was developed to assist physicians, physical therapists and athletic trainers with guidance on readiness to return to play after a concussion. Athletes take the test prior to the sport season starting to obtain a baseline. This test allows clinicians to assess cognitive skills on an ongoing basis in preparation for a return to play. The test assesses a person’s reaction time, memory, attention, processing speed and post-concussion symptoms.

If you or someone you know has suffered a concussion and is exhibiting cognitive or physical difficulties, please call us at (832) 912-3540
