Webster defines a concussion as “a stunning, damaging, or shattering effect from a hard blow; especially: a jarring injury of the brain resulting in disturbance of cerebral function.” A wonderful article by John Doherty of North West Indiana Times gives us the most well-written explanation.
“In the immediate aftermath of a concussion, there may be some structural damage at the microscopic level with some cell death. However, the primary problem is a chemical one in the cells that have survived the incident.”
Research has recognized the effectiveness of Physical Therapy in treating concussions. Physical therapists are an integral part of concussion management. Receiving rehabilitative care post-concussion can decrease the time to medical clearance and leads to an overall faster and safer recovery.
