Concussion Management

Concussion Management at Montrose Physiotherapy & Massage in Abbotsford

Even if you didn’t bump your head, you might have a concussion. And a concussion is actually a type of brain injury! Concussions have been disregarded and ignored in history by many, even medical professionals. But the physiotherapists at Montrose Physiotherapy & Massage in Abbotsford take concussion management very seriously.

It doesn’t matter if you have a diagnosis for a concussion or suspect you have one. Our physiotherapists will immediately complete a thorough assessment of your symptoms. Your physiotherapist will develop a safe, customized care program to support your healing journey if you have a concussion. Concussions can cause short- and long-term physical, mental, and emotional problems if not treated properly.

What Can Cause a Concussion?

The most common causes of concussions are injuries sustained in a car accident, a sports accident, work accidents, or in children, playground accidents. It could also be the result of a violent attack.

Concussion recovery must be managed over several weeks to several months, depending on the severity of the injury.

How Do You Know if You Have a Concussion?

If you can trace concussion symptoms back to a specific event, you likely have a concussion. But even if you can’t remember – whether you lost consciousness or not – you could have a concussion. Symptoms may not start for a day or two, so you may need someone else to help you trace back your symptoms to what happened.

Everyone with a concussion doesn’t get all the symptoms, but you may experience:

  • Headaches or migraines
  • Confusion
  • A lack of coordination
  • Balance problems
  • Memory loss
  • Nausea and/or vomiting
  • Dizziness
  • Ringing in your ears (tinnitus)
  • Sleepiness
  • Extreme fatigue

If you experienced an incident that may have caused a concussion, even if you don’t have any symptoms, it is best to have a thorough, professional assessment.  

If you have suffered a concussion, physiotherapy at Montrose Physiotherapy & Massage in Abbotsford can help you with:

  • Balance
  • Focus
  • Stability
  • Gait
  • Mood
  • Strengthening neck muscles
  • Ensuring you have good mobility in your joints and surrounding soft tissues
