Concussion Care

Symmetry PT provides pre-season baseline screenings, preventative care and post-injury management of concussion. A Concussion is a type of Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) that occurs when the head is jolted – either by a direct force or by a blow to the body that results in a jerking action of the head and neck. If a┬áconcussion has occurred, appropriate management is critical. Rest is important for recovery. Physical activity should be resumed gradually, under controlled circumstances. Education should be provided to patients and their families regarding prevention of further injury and safe guidelines for return to normal activity.
