Concussion Management at MyoDynamic Health

Best Physiotherapy Clinic Barrie Innisfil

A concussion is a traumatic brain injury that can temporarily affect brain function, such as concentration, balance, memory and coordination. Concussions are common among athletes, especially in contact sports like soccer or football.

If you have experienced a head injury you think could be a concussion, consider visiting a concussion clinic like MyoDynamic Health for concussion management services.

A concussion impacts the overall function of the brain, and as a result, it cannot be detected by MRI/brain scans. Because symptoms often resolve before the brain has completely recovered, one of the best methods to aid in concussion therapy and assist healthcare practitioners in making a safer return to sport decisions is Baseline Testing.

Contact the concussion experts at MyoDynamic Health to start a conversation about our concussion management services. We look forward to helping you return to your favorite activities!

What Can Cause a Concussion?

A hard blow to the head, neck or upper body can cause your brain to slide back and forth, hitting the inner walls of your skull. Because your brain has the consistency of gelatin, this jolt can injure the brain, producing a concussion. Although this phenomenon is common among athletes, it can also occur from falls, vehicular accidents and other incidents. Though concussions can be serious, most people fully recover with the right treatment and care.

Concussion Symptoms

After a hit to your head, concussion symptoms can be subtle or may not appear immediately. The most common symptom individuals seek treatment for is a headache. However, in more severe cases, a concussion can result in memory loss around the event and confusion.

More physical signs include:

  • Ringing in the ears
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Fatigue
  • Dizziness or “seeing stars”
  • Blurry vision
  • Feeling in a fog
Treatment for Concussions

After a concussion, you should take a rest from physical and mental activities. Relative rest includes avoiding high mental concentration on stimulating activities like playing video games, doing schoolwork, reading and using a computer. From here, you can reach out to a concussion specialist in Innisfil or Barrie at MyoDynamic Health for our available treatment options to get you back to regular functioning in no time.


Physiotherapy

A physiotherapy post-concussion management program from MyoDynamic Health walks you through personalized stretches and range-of-motion exercises to enhance your strength based on your results from concussion testing. We can also assist with eye exercises and specialized massages to improve symptoms, including dizziness, impaired balance, neck pain and more.


Massage Therapy

Headaches can still linger after a full recovery. With the help of massage therapy, we can provide healing and pain relief for those suffering from neck pain. Massage therapy encourages healthy blood flow to the brain and releases endorphins for natural healing. Following treatments, you can use the skills you've learned to manage headaches as they come.
