Whether due to sports injuries, car accidents, falls, or any sudden blow to the head, concussions are traumatic brain injuries that can lead to various physical, cognitive, and emotional symptoms. Dealing with a concussion can be a challenging experience. Still, with proper assessment and tailored treatment, recovery is not only possible, but it can also be made smoother and safer.
In this post, we will discuss the vital role that concussion assessments play in the journey to recovery, and how we at Rhema-Gold Physiotherapy implement them in our patient care.
What Does a Concussion Assessment Entail?
A concussion assessment is a process that involves evaluating an individual who may have suffered a concussion. The assessment usually includes reviewing the patient’s symptoms and medical history, conducting a physical examination, and performing cognitive and balance tests.
The Purpose of a Concussion Assessment
The primary purpose of a concussion assessment is to diagnose a concussion and determine its severity. The results of this evaluation are vital for developing a personalized treatment plan that can effectively address the patient’s symptoms and promote recovery.
