Are You Feeling Hindered By Dizziness Or A Concussion?

At Push Through Performance, we have conducted extensive research and identified six distinct types of concussions that athletes may experience. While each patient usually fits into one primary profile, it’s common for two or three profiles to be intertwined.
These six profiles include cervical (neck), mental/fatigue, eye/vestibular, head/headache, and emotional/mood concussions. Our skilled therapists are adept at efficiently and effectively providing care by accurately identifying the specific profile.
To establish a patient’s concussion profile, we consider their narrative, history, and current symptoms. Knowing the signs and symptoms is inadequate; a thorough physical examination is essential. Our comprehensive orthopedic assessment evaluates the range of motion, pain threshold, and voluntary control of the cervical spine.
We can commence effective treatment once the patient’s specific profile is determined. Research has shown that resting and inactivity are counterproductive when dealing with concussions. The outdated approach of waiting for the brain to heal by dimming lights, avoiding stimulation, and resting is no longer recommended. We now actively treat concussions with proactive methods to aid recovery.
The Symptoms We Commonly Address In Our Treatments Include:
Our facility has the expertise to address and treat these various symptoms effectively to promote better health and well-being for our patients.

Concussion Rehabilitation: A Step-By-Step Approach

  1. Assessment: Begin by identifying the primary concussion symptoms and impairments experienced by the patient through a thorough evaluation.
  2. Targeted Exercises: Address the specific deficiencies identified in the assessment with a tailored exercise program based on the patient’s concussion profile. This may involve mobilization techniques for the neck, balance exercises, vestibulo-ocular retraining, and an aerobic exertion program. Additionally, guidance may be provided on techniques to improve rest, manage stress, maintain proper hydration, and optimize dietary intake.
  3. Gradual Reintroduction: As the patient progresses and symptoms improve, gradually reintroduce physical activities, exercise, and sports. The pace of reintegration will depend on the individual’s response and the resolution of symptoms, ensuring a safe and sustainable return to regular activities.
