Without proper post-concussion care some symptoms go unnoticed and continue to cause discomfort, Concussions can seriously alter your personality and emotional functioning due to changes in the brain structure.

Physical therapy optimizes your ability to move and function, with the goal of helping you meet the demands of daily life with ease. At 4 Oaks Physical Therapy, we evaluate and treat your post-concussion problems in order to stop dizziness and improve your balance while also reducing headaches.

Why Is Physical Therapy Important After Sustaining a Concussion?

A qualified vestibular physical therapist can help provide you with the right exercises and training in order to reduce the symptoms that you endure after sustaining a concussion. The symptoms that arise after sustaining such an injury and the problems that they cause can vary greatly for each individual diagnosis; no two concussions are the same.

Physical therapists can help evaluate and treat problems that can arise for each specific case in order to assess possible future issues or limitations.

Treatments Are Used To Alleviate Post-Concussion Symptoms

Dizziness and difficulty with balance are common side effects of a concussion that vestibular rehabilitation therapy can help.  The vestibular system has to do with the inner ear and how it connects to the brain. It is responsible for seemingly easy tasks, such as head movement or keeping your eyes focused, but its function can be disrupted with a concussion.

A vestibular physical therapist is able to provide specific exercises or training to stop dizziness that will help you recover your balance after you have sustained a concussion.

Some forms of dizziness and headaches are caused by neck injures which are common with a concussion. Going to a physical therapist will help assess whether you have sustained a neck or spine injury during the concussion and will able to help you recover in faster and safer way.  There are many treatments which can be utilized such as soft tissue mobilization and exercise.

How does Post-Concussion Therapy Help Determine When to Return to Activity?

Symptoms of your concussion will improve and your physical therapist will help properly guide you back into physical activity. It is important to avoid too much physical activity too quickly as not to overload your nervous system and brain. Our therapists are specialists in sports medicine that can develop a program to gradually introduce physical activity and will help determine when it is safe for you to return to normal routine.

I have been to many PTs over the years and this team is by far the best I have ever had. They are very talented and spend alot of time working on you in addition to providing exercises that help you get stronger. All three PTs are amazing but Pam is my favorite. Very personable, caring and talented. And all of the PT assistants are friendly and helpful. I actually enjoy my visits with this team! ❤️

I can't thank Henry and Stephanie enough. I came in with radiating pain in my leg with 3 goals: to be able to watch/play/carry my grandkids, to be able to work in my yard, and to avoid back surgery. They patiently worked with me to increase my core strength, improve my posture and develop good lifting technique. It will never be perfect because the underlying problem is still there, but I am able to carry 30 pounds of granddaughter, crawl on the floor with a 9 month old, and garden for 10 hours over 2 days. All wins and I know I don't express it adequately enough to them, but they and the entire staff were wonderful.

I highly recommend this facility for your physical therapy. The staff is highly qualified and experienced. Patients are seen on schedule and provided with at home therapy on alternate days and upon completion of therapy. After 3 months I feel like part of the 4 Oaks family. Be mindful, no pain, no gain.

The staff at 4 Oaks are friendly, knowledgeable, and very helpful. Not only did they reduce my pain, they taught me many ways of continuing to manage it after my time with them ends so I have a greater understanding of my issues. Stephanie in particular was very patient in answering all of my questions and effectively treating my symptoms. I highly recommend this clinic for anyone suffering from pain that reduces their quality of life!

Highly recommend this location. They are attentive and great with scheduling in person or via text. Stephanie, Lauren, Henry, Maureen were the main therapists helping me out and they were extremely knowledgeable and informative. My issue definitely improved coming here, especially with all the other therapy assistants like Joe helping out. I would come back if my issue returns. Thanks guys!
