In my last post I introduced the topic of concussions, and taught you about how they occur and about the signs and symptoms. This week, as I usually do in part two of my blogs, we will dive into how concussions are diagnosed, how physical therapy can help, and what kind of physical therapist you need to seek out.
I have noticed that over the past few years concussions have received a great deal of attention. If you haven’t suffered one personally I will bet that you know at least one or two other people who have. The issue that is on everyone’s mind – in the medical and sports worlds – is the long-term problems associated with this injury. It is estimated that in sports alone, more than 3.8 million concussions occur each year – wow.
