A concussion is a mild form of a traumatic brain injury (TBI). A concussion occurs when an impact causes the head and brain to shake quickly back and forth, similar to what occurs during a whiplash. Common causes of concussion include:
Concussions are not usually considered to be life threatening, however they can cause some serious symptoms which require treatment. Some of the common symptoms may include:
Physiotherapists in Mumbai will evaluate and treat many of the problems related to concussion. During the examination they will assess your individual symptoms and challenges to setup a plan of action. Some treatments may include:
Your physiotherapist can help you understand why limitations of your activities (physical, sport, recreational, electronics, school) is important after a concussion and when it is safe to return. Rest helps the brain recover and heal, and help symptoms clear up.
When the time comes, it is important to work on regaining strength and endurance that has been lost throughout the periods of physical and mental rest required. Your physiotherapist will design an exercise program for you that take into account your abilities and limitations, monitoring your symptoms through this process.
Dizziness and balance difficulties are common following a concussion. The vestibular system, which is very important to your balance and in preventing dizziness, can be worked on by physiotherapists through manual therapy and specific exercises.
Physiotherapists in Mumbai can assess the possible causes of persistent headaches, and apply treatments and exercises to address them. Treatments can include stretching, strengthening, mobility exercises, eye exercises and hands-on techniques.
As symptoms decrease and normal strength and endurance returns, your physiotherapist will assist you in adding normal activities back into your routine. There will be ongoing monitoring to ensure that there is no overloading of the brain and nervous system. Overloading of the brain, slows down the healing and recovery and can make symptoms return.
