Concussion Rehab and Vestibular Training
GRADUATED RETURN TO PLAY
After an initial period of rest, athletes with a concussion can begin graduated rehabilitation, provided they are symptom free. These usually begin with light aerobic activity, followed by increased aerobic intensity, practices without contact, drills with contact and finally return to competition.
At KOPI our therapists and physicians are experienced in post concussion therapy and rehab focused on safe graduated return to play.
Vestibular treatment and rehabilitation.
Dizziness and balance problems may be caused by a problem with the vestibular system. This system included the inner ear, brain and nerve pathways that help control balance and eye movements.
KOPI therapists are trained in vestibular rehabilitation therapy (VRT). This is a exercised based program that is designed to help the nervous system decrease dizziness and improve balance and may help individuals with persistent symptoms after concussion.
