Concussions are becoming more commonly diagnosed and recognized as a serious injury requiring treatment. Concussions can result in neck and upper back pain, headaches, inability to sleep, dizziness, light sensitivity, visual problems among other things. Physical therapy has been proven to be an effective part of concussion management. Therapists work in conjunction with other health professionals to address the musculoskeletal issues, as well as the visual disturbances, loss of balance and other neurological deficits. The therapist contributes significantly to the decision of when and how to return to play and/or work and school.
