Concussion Management 

At LHMPTI, we understand the impact that concussions can have on your life. Whether you’ve experienced a concussion during sports, a fall, or another activity, our dedicated team of physical therapists is here to help you recover safely and effectively. Our Concussion Management Program combines specialized assessment techniques and evidence-based interventions to guide you through a comprehensive recovery process and support your return to normal activities. 

Concussion management physical therapy focuses on the assessment, treatment, and rehabilitation of individuals who have sustained a concussion. Our experienced physical therapists will work closely with you to develop a personalized treatment plan that addresses your unique symptoms and challenges associated with concussion. 

 Key Components of our Concussion Management Program: 

 Comprehensive Assessment: Our physical therapists will conduct a thorough evaluation to assess your symptoms, cognitive function, balance, vision, and vestibular function. This evaluation helps us understand the extent of your concussion and identify any areas of impairment requiring targeted intervention.
 Individualized Treatment Plan: Based on the assessment findings, we'll create a customized treatment plan tailored to your specific needs and goals. We'll collaborate with you to set realistic targets and milestones for your recovery journey.
 Symptom Management: Concussions often cause symptoms such as headaches, dizziness, visual disturbances, and difficulty concentrating. Our therapists will employ techniques to manage these symptoms, such as manual therapy, relaxation exercises, and education on pacing and activity modification.
 Vestibular Rehabilitation: If your concussion has affected your balance or vestibular system, we'll incorporate vestibular rehabilitation exercises to improve your balance, reduce dizziness, and enhance your overall stability.
 Visual Rehabilitation: Visual disturbances are common after concussions. Our therapists may include specific exercises and techniques to address visual impairments, such as eye tracking exercises, convergence training, and visual motion sensitivity training.
 Gradual Return to Activity: We'll guide you through a step-by-step process for returning to physical and cognitive activities. This may include gradual reintroduction to exercise, sports-specific training, and strategies for managing cognitive demands.
 Education and Self-Management Strategies: We'll provide you with valuable information on concussion education, symptom management techniques, and strategies for preventing future concussions. We'll empower you to take an active role in your recovery and equip you with tools to manage your symptoms independently.
