Concussion Rehabilitation: Shift Concussion Management Program

Recovering from a concussion can be difficult and frustrating at times. For concussion rehabilitation care in Torbay, choose us. At Joint Therapy: Massage and Physiotherapy Clinic, our shift providers understand that each person is affected differently, and as such requires individualized care. Management strategies are used to limit the amount of impairment as well as expedite recovery as much as possible. These strategies may include any one of a combination of the following and are case-dependent:

  • Education around the injury and individualized strategies for rest and recovery
  • Specific recommendations around employment/academic demands
  • Manual/physical therapy for associated complaints (neck and whiplash)
  • Vestibular and ocular rehabilitation for dizziness, motion sensitivity, balance disorders, and visual complaints
  • Physical exertion testing and exercise plans for return to sports or an active lifestyle
  • Referral for additional forms of care (ex: medical, optometric, psychological/neuropsychological, etc.)

Most concussions are resolved within a short time frame but some may persist for up to a month or longer. A small percentage of individuals may go on to experience post-concussion syndrome (PCS) – a term used to describe the persistence of concussion-related symptoms beyond the expected recovery period.

It is normal to feel frustrated, sad, or angry during your recovery because you cannot return to sports, work, or academic activities right away.

To book an appointment/assessment, please contact our clinic at 709-233-3300.
