Treatment for Concussion

What to do for treatment?

If you suspect that you have a concussion or have had a severe blow to your head, you should have yourself checked out at emergency or your doctor. If you have a diagnosis of a concussion, you can find a practitioner of Brain Therapy.

 

What will I be treated for?

You will be assessed using the SCAT3 which is a series of questions to answer and activities to do. You will also have a physiotherapy assessment done. Your brain has an inflammatory process occurring as a result of the concussion. You will need education re resting the brain while it heals and the inflammation reduces. You will also need to have treatment to assist with reducing the inflammation, working on balance re-education, and treating the other areas of the body which may have been hurt in the fall or accident which caused the concussion.
