Concussion

A concussion is a mild traumatic brain injury that can affect the brains’ ability to function. Symptoms usually present themselves quickly after a knock to either the head or body. Often a sprained neck comes hand in hand with a concussion injury.


Symptoms you may experience following a concussion include.

  • Irritability, anxiety, low mood, fatigue, difficulty concentrating and remembering.

  • Neck stiffness, headaches, dizziness, nausea, noise sensitivity, balance concerns.

  • Blurred vision, double vision, light sensitivity, migraine.

  • Sleep Disturbance, restless legs.

Evidence shows that with repeated concussion people may experience a decline in general health and quality of life up to 10 years. This doesn’t need to be the case, and with appropriate rehabilitation people can recover full function. All the symptoms listed above have treatment strategies that an appropriately trained physio can assist with.



If you or someone you know has had a concussion and needs help recovering, book in to see a physio today.
