A Holistic Approach To Concussion Recovery

Following a concussion, navigating the path to recovery can feel overwhelming. At Northwest Injury Clinics, we understand the importance of comprehensive concussion care. That's why we offer a holistic approach to concussion recovery, addressing both the physical and cognitive aspects of healing.

What Is A Concussion?

Before you can truly understand your treatment and path to recovery, though, you must understand what a concussion really is. There is a great deal of misinformation and false assumptions about concussions because we see them so often, but what’s the truth?

A concussion is a mild traumatic brain injury caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head.  Although considered mild, concussions can disrupt normal brain function, leading to a variety of symptoms.

Common Concussion Symptoms 

Symptoms of a concussion can vary depending on the severity of the injury and can include:

  • Headache
  • Dizziness
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Confusion
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Sensitivity to light or sound
  • Fatigue
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Memory problems

If you suspect you or someone you know has sustained a concussion, it's crucial to seek medical attention immediately.

Concussion Treatment Services We Offer

At Northwest Injury Clinics, our team of concussion specialists collaborates to develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to your specific needs.  Our concussion treatment services may include:

  • Medical Evaluation: A thorough evaluation by a licensed medical professional to assess the severity of your concussion and identify any underlying conditions.
  • Vestibular Rehabilitation: Exercises designed to improve balance and dizziness, common symptoms following a concussion.
  • Vision Therapy: If your vision is affected by the concussion, vision therapy can improve focusing, tracking, and eye teaming skills.
  • Cognitive Rehabilitation: Strategies and exercises to address memory, concentration, and information processing difficulties that may arise after a concussion.
  • Cervical Spine Evaluation: The neck can be impacted by a head injury. Our chiropractors can assess your cervical spine and provide adjustments to improve function and reduce pain.
  • Massage Therapy: Massage therapy can help reduce muscle tension headaches and promote overall healing.

Preventing Brain Injury With Pre-Season Testing

For athletes, particularly those in high-contact sports, baseline concussion testing before the season can be invaluable.  This baseline assessment provides a reference point to compare future cognitive function if a concussion is suspected.  Early detection and intervention are critical for a full and speedy recovery.
