A concussion is a mild traumatic brain injury (TBI) that can occur from a direct bump or blow to the head, or a hit to the body that indirectly shakes the head. A concussion can produce symptoms that last anywhere from a few hours to a few months.
Concussions most often occur during a fall, car accident, or full-contact sport like football or boxing. If you suspect you or a loved one has experienced a concussion, reach out to a concussion expert immediately!
Be aware that you may also experience emotional symptoms. These may include increased sadness, irritability, and even nervousness.
At Sheltering Arms, we are dedicated to the comprehensive management and treatment of your concussion from pre-injury evaluations all the way through treatment and complete rehabilitation. Our highly trained specialists and innovative concussion therapy technologies will quickly lead you down the road to recovery.
During this testing phase, we determine our patient’s normal levels of balance and brain functioning. We examine several domains of brain function that are typically affected following a concussion.
Due to the complexity of concussions, which can result in both physical and cognitive issues, our expert clinicians work together to create a customized treatment plan for each individual.
With over 130 years of caring for our community, we lead the way with our innovative physical therapy treatments. Our professional concussion therapists rehabilitate patients with the most up-to-date practices and are dedicated to helping people recover and get back to doing the things they love!
Sheltering Arms’ therapy clinics are conveniently located throughout the Central Virginia & Richmond Metro Area and offer personalized one-on-one care with a licensed occupational therapist.
