Vestibular and Concussion Management
At Access Physiotherapy we treat vestibular pathologies such as benign paroxysmal positional vertigo, peripheral hypofunction, and central vertigo. These conditions may result in symptoms of dizziness or lightheadedness, headaches, fatigues, tight neck and shoulder muscles, nausea, balance issues, ringing in the ears, and difficulty concentrating. Our treatments focus on identifying the root cause of the symptoms and using specific treatments to minimize symptoms while teaching you to self-manage your condition.
A concussion is a mild Traumatic Brain Injury usually as a result of high velocity whipping forward and back, or side to side of the neck and head. This causes the brain to be jarred against the skull. Concussions can vary in severity and symptoms can persist for weeks to several months after the initial injury. This is called Post-Concussion Syndrome. It is classified by headaches, dizziness, and problems with concentration and memory. Here at Access Physiotherapy we offer specific concussion assessments and treatments as our staff have extra training in this area.
