Concussion Therapy

Most People Assume That if They Just Rest for a Couple of Days, all the Symptoms Will Disappear.


If you have been diagnosed with a concussion, how can you be positive that you are doing all that you can to be sure that your concussion heals without negative side effects? Are you waiting forever for a doctor’s appointment? Are you confused after searching the internet for answers only to find differing opinions with potentially misleading information?

If you’re suffering from a concussion, or any symptoms that come along with a concussion, you may be hoping it will magically go away on its own. Most people assume that if they just rest for a couple of days, all the symptoms will disappear. Sometimes, this IS the case. However, it’s important to know that other times it’s not, and early intervention is the key to a faster and more complete recovery.

If you find yourself thinking, “Things just don’t seem to be getting any better”, it may be time to see one of our experienced physical therapists. If you are dealing with a concussion and any of the symptoms that come along with it, there is something that you should know: YOU ARE NOT ALONE! Concussions are something that we treat here at Cardin & Miller Physical Therapy and it’s something that happens more often than you’d think!

When it comes to Concussions everyone wants to know:

"What should I be doing to help properly recover from this?"


How long should this take for me to get better? Will I EVER get better?

There are many old wives’ tales swirling around about concussions and the best ways to recover from them. It’s easy to get caught up in the idea of quick fixes or simple remedies for your Concussion. If you aren’t careful, you can be sucked down a rabbit hole of misinformation. Your time is valuable, and you want relief. Trust one of our experienced concussion professionals to help direct you onto the path to recovery.

Your doctor is an important member of the medical team, and we are happy to work with them to help get you back on your feet! Many primary care doctors will recommend extended periods of rest (often times weeks) between appointments for clients with concussion. One frustrating outcome is that symptoms occasionally worsen during rest periods. After 3 weeks of waiting (and feeling worse), the client follows up with their doctor and is THEN referred for Concussion Therapy at our clinic. Getting an assessment with one of our experienced concussion therapists sooner than later is the best way to ensure that you are doing everything that you can to expedite your recovery.

If You’re Currently Living with Concussion Symptoms Here Are Some Things You Need to Know:

  • All Concussions are different.
  • It is possible that this Concussion will last longer than your last one, or your mother’s, etc..
  • It is dangerous to put yourself in a place where you could get a second Concussion while you still have the first one.
  • It is important to seek medical advice right away when you think you acquired a Concussion.
  • There are many myths that are thought of when regarding Concussions; it's important to know the truth.

What Is Important for Me To Know When It Comes To Dealing With Concussions?

First, no two Concussions are the same. There are many different types of Concussions and so many ways your body can react. It’s important to know that you may not be able to deal with one Concussion the way you would deal with another. This is why it’s important to contact a medical professional when the Concussion occurs.

Second, Concussions take a while to heal; it is not an overnight thing, for sure. Most Concussions can heal within 7-21 days. However, it may take upwards of a year to fully recover from a Concussion.

Third, a Concussion is brain injury. Even though you don’t see it or maybe don’t even feel it all the time, it is important to remember that the brain needs time to heal just like your ankle would if you tripped and sprained it!

Fourth, you don’t have to wait around and do nothing. YOU CAN GET HELP TREATING YOUR CONCUSSION SYMPTOMS RIGHT AWAY!
