You’ve had a head-on collision. Maybe it was from a car accident, a fall, or maybe from a sports injury. Regardless, the result of the collision can possibly lead to a concussion —a traumatic brain injury that can cause lasting effects on brain tissue and change the chemical balance of the brain.
A concussion must be taken seriously. Left untreated, you run the risk of permanent brain damage, or even death. Always seek immediate treatment from a health care provider, like a physical therapist. At the office of Nevada Rehabilitation Centers, our highly skilled professionals have the training to identify concussion and help with treatment.
Symptoms of a concussion can include headache, dizziness, difficulty with balance and coordination, fatigue, confusion, slurred speech, and memory difficulties. Because no two concussions are the same, our physical therapists will conduct a full examination in order to prescribe best treat your symptoms. After a period of rest that helps the brain heal, we will work with you on a series of targeted treatments and exercises to restore strength and endurance, stop any dizziness you may have, and improve overall balance and coordination.
As symptoms lessen and strength increases, we can help you gradually add normal activities back into your daily routine.
