The CDC estimates that 3.8 million concussions occur
in children and adults each year. Concussion related symptoms can affect
physical, emotional, and mental health. Recent research demonstrates that
vestibular rehabilitation with a physical therapist can help improve
recovery by reducing dizziness and headaches, improving balance, and
facilitating a safe and productive return to sports or work.
Vestibular rehabilitation is a specialized exercise and manual therapy
program designed to reduce the symptoms associated with post concussive
syndrome. Aquahab Physical Therapy now offers comprehensive Physical
Therapy programs delivered by therapists certified in vestibular management
to patients with Post-Concussion Syndrome. Patients receive a customized
physical therapy treatment program to address symptoms of imbalance,
fatigue, headaches, dizziness, and neck pain. Treatments may include manual
therapy, balance exercises, vestibular therapy, and progressive functional
training to allow a patient to return to sport activities, activities of
daily living, or job duties. Aquahab's goal is to enable a patient to fully
participate in all activities without a return of any symptoms.
An Aquahab therapist will conduct an individualized musculoskeletal,
sensory, and oculomotor evaluation to identify a patientâ€™s deficits and
utilize a one on one treatment approach to design an optimal rehabilitation
program using the latest evidence based treatment techniques.
