Concussion: Not Just a Headache

Concussion: Not Just a Headache

The ability to detect if someone may be mildly concussed can be challenging for practitioners and the likely rehabilitation times and recovery processes are not widely known even within the health industry.  My role as physiotherapist at the Claremont Football Club includes concussion identification and assessment, appropriate referral to an experienced medical practitioner, then facilitation of a specific neuro-rehabilitation program involving balance, coordination, and a step-by-step return to school and physical activity in conjunction with the treating doctor.
