After a concussion, the road to recovery can seem overwhelming and the conflicting information patients sometimes receive doesn’t help. For example, most people are told that screens are bad and to avoid all technology after a concussion. While this is true, it is most important to avoid screen time in the initial stages of recovery. Typically, 48 hours after the concussion took place, you can slowly reintroduce usual activities including the use of screens.
During post-concussion therapy, there are several pieces of technology that can help you recover by either identifying or treating impairments. Patients experiencing light sensitivity can wear glasses with tinted lenses to help manage symptoms so they can still use technology during treatment.
Here are five examples of technology commonly used during concussion treatment and recovery:
This is a small sample of technology that can be used in post-concussion therapy. Incorporating technology into therapy often makes it more engaging for you and allows for more complex treatment options.
