How Can Physiotherapy or Chiropractic Help My Concussion?

All too often, it is these symptoms of a concussion that led to the greatest amount of discomfort. Physiotherapy can encourage a return to feeling better by restoring strength to atrophied muscles and improving endurance. This can be achieved through a combination of muscle-training activities and aerobics. However, it is important to work with a physiotherapist or chiropractor to gain guidance regarding the best activities for your body’s needs post-brain injury. Working out alone could lead to further injury. Your physiotherapist or chiropractor will customize a strength-building program for you, as well as guide you through aerobic moves that help you regain that endurance.

In addition to physiotherapy, additional strategies like targeted massage, specific stretches, and even eye motion training can help to reduce headaches and nausea following a concussion. Physiotherapy programs for concussion often build in vestibular therapy, which helps you orient yourself during periods of lightheadedness or loss of balance. To encourage this your physiotherapist or chiropractor will introduce you to specialized activities, including fixing your gaze at a certain point in the distance or using simple movements to stabilize your core and limbs. With proper guidance, these strategies can be incredibly helpful in improving the quality of life as you recover from a concussion.
