As concussion awareness becomes more prominent so must what physical therapy treatment may include depending on the client
Early stage concussion training includes cardiovascular training at a percentage of their heart rate max (depending on age and stage of rehab), eye exercises (oculomotor stabilization), and vestibular system stimulation. As mentioned before, any concussion (or any physical therapy rehab) program should be individualized to the client for optimal return to sport. In addition, it is imperative that communication is clear with all those involved with the athlete’s care including parents, coaches, athletic trainers, school nurses, physicians, etc.
