What is a Concussion?

A concussion is a condition used to describe brain injury due to the skull’s irregular movement (acceleration/deceleration). In most cases, it is caused by a large amount of impact on your body, causing a biochemical imbalance among your brain cells. This further leads to temporary energy deficit and low blood flow within the brain cell.

Common Symptoms of concussion

When a person has a concussion, some of the most noticeable signs are;

  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Balance problem
  • Headache
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Neck pain
  • Pressure in the head

Momentum Spine and Sports Physiotherapy Clinic concussion management services & strategies in line with CCMI practices.

As a partnered CCMI practitioner, our concussion programs are effective and beneficial to patients. Programs provided during concussion treatment include;

  • Vestibular, oculomotor, and cervical spine rehabilitation
  • Exertional testing for return-to-sport readiness. If underlying symptoms continue, threshold exercises are introduced
  • Pre-season baseline and post-injury or return-to-sport testing. These tests consist of neurocognitive, reaction time, visual procession, and balance aspects.
  • Educational sessions and resources

At the earlier stage of concussion, research suggests 24-48 hours of physical and cognitive rest depending on the relative symptoms and current condition.

According to the international consensus statement on concussion in sport (2018), after a short period, a patient should be recommended gradual activities that can enhance their mental and physical condition by a certified practitioner trained in concussion management.

Pre-Season Testing

Pre-season testing is a multimodal assessment performed using a series of cognitive and physical tests to observe the healthy state/function of the brain with an overview of any pre-injury.

The importance of these tests helps a CCMI specialist to have a proper insight to determine whether a patient sustained a concussion while comparing it with the established objective benchmark. Due to the fact that most baseline testing is not created equal, CCMI has specified the best evidence-based tool to guide a specialist to obtain a well-detailed, multimodal, and proven-baseline test.

Most patients tend to recover from symptoms within days to weeks before the brain heals completely. Through evidence-baseline information, it will help your specialist to make the necessary and safe decision before returning to regular activities
