WHAT IS CONCUSSION REHAB?
In Edmonton, concussion therapy provides a specialized rehabilitation approach that supports individuals in recovering from a traumatic brain injury known as a concussion. This injury occurs when the brain jostles within the skull, resulting in symptoms such as headaches, dizziness, nausea, and challenges with concentration.
Concussion rehab typically involves a combination of physical, occupational, and cognitive therapies to help the individual recover from their injury. Physical therapy assists in rebuilding strength and coordination, while occupational therapy facilitates the acquisition of new strategies for managing daily tasks. Cognitive therapy enhances memory, attention, and addresses anxiety or depression an individual may be facing.
The specific type and duration of concussion rehab will vary depending on the individual’s symptoms and severity of the injury. Collaborating with an experienced healthcare professional in concussion treatment ensures a personalized rehabilitation program aligned with the individual’s needs and objectives.
