The AAMG Physical Therapy rehabilitation team includes physical therapists, occupational therapists and speech therapists. We provide a team approach to the diagnosis and treatment of brain injuries to children five years and up, as well as adults. Our team works with families, trainers, coaches and schools to help you recover quickly from concussions.
What is a Concussion?
A concussion is a brain injury that follows trauma. Accidents during sports and recreational activities are the leading causes of concussions. Full recovery from these injuries is possible with proper treatment. However, multiple concussions in children or teens may mean longer recovery times, symptoms that do not go away, and lifelong problems.
Concussion symptoms include:
- Nausea or vomiting
- Dizziness or difficulty balancing
- Fuzzy or blurry vision
- Tiredness or lack of energy
- Sensitivity to light or noise
- Difficulty concentrating
- Feeling slower
- Memory loss
Emotional and Mood
- Nervousness or anxiety
- Emotional sensitivity
- Sleep more or less than usual
- Trouble falling asleep
What to Expect from Concussion Rehabilitation
A licensed therapist determines your baseline abilities. Your therapist then develops a personalized therapy program to meet your goals. Your therapist also works with you to create a safe and effective home program to meet your needs.
“I was barely able to move my neck and was unable to function at my job. I haven’t felt this good in years. The staff are amazing and the techs are a lot of fun to work with. I will miss my sessions, but I’m cured!”
“Starting with almost no movement and a lot of pain, OT has restored my strength and flexibility in my hand. The staff was empathetic, efficient and made a somewhat tedious task fun. I am very happy with the outcome and am able to do my daily activities with relative ease.”
“It was a very educational experience and helpful to my recovery. The staff are knowledgeable and know what to do. The homework stretches and exercises were helpful now and will be in the future.”
