Concussion Rehabilitation Program

What is a Concussion?

A concussion is a type of injury that causes a temporary disruption in function of the brain. This injury could be caused by a blow to the head, a fall, whiplash, or any injury that jars or shakes the brain inside the skull.

Potential Symptoms of a Concussion

  • Headache
  • Nausea
  • Neck pain
  • Dizziness/Balance problems
  • Cognitive problems: irritability, confusion, difficulty with concentration
  • Vision changes/Light sensitivity
  • Sleep disruption
  • Mood changes


Most individuals fully recover from a concussion within 2-4 weeks. However, if there are persistent symptoms that affect an individual’s daily functioning, then therapy may be beneficial. After an evaluation, our concussion team will develop an individualized treatment plan to address your specific needs.
