A concussion is a type of brain injury that can occur after a blow to the head. A concussion does not necessarily require loss of consciousness. Most concussions occur without loss of consciousness. Concussions can range in severity, and some patients may require treatment.

Concussion rehabilitation at our Toronto and Scarborough clinic varies from person to person, as there are many factors that can affect recovery.

What are Concussion Symptoms?

The symptoms of a concussion can include dizziness, headache, imbalance, nausea, vomiting, vertigo, double vision, fatigue, difficulty sleeping, light, and sound sensitivity.

Additional emotional symptoms may include irritability, restlessness, anxiety, mood swings, depression, aggressive behavior, and decreased tolerance for stress. There can also be some other symptoms related to concussion, like having a hard time with short- and long-term memory, feeling confused, and being unable to focus.

Do You Think You Have Suffered a Concussion?

It is important to be checked out by a medical professional if you think you have a concussion. A concussion cannot be seen on traditional diagnostic imaging, so they often go undiagnosed. If symptoms persist for more than a few days, and the brain has difficulty carrying out normal activities, it’s called Post-Concussion Syndrome.

What are Concussion Symptoms?

People with Post-Concussion Syndrome may experience the following:

  • prolonged dizziness
  • irritability
  • light and sound sensitivity
  • motion sensitivity
  • fatigue
  • visual disturbances
  • cognitive deficits that last beyond the normal healing time for a concussion.

What is Our Concussion Management Process?

Concussion rehabilitation at our Toronto and Scarborough clinics is a process whereby a therapist uses a variety of exercises and treatments to help a patient recover from brain trauma.

It is important for the therapist to add the appropriate level of exercises gradually, as too much stimulation may cause the symptoms to temporarily worsen. With a proper assessment at our rehabilitation clinic, a closely monitored exercise program and a treatment plan, most patients will fully recover with minimal residual deficits.
