Post-Concussion Program

A concussion is caused by direct or indirect trauma to the brain. It can be considered a mild traumatic brain injury because of the impact of the brain hitting the skull and the shearing force on the brain. Concussions are now a more common and serious problem among athletes. Many of these individuals can suffer from post-concussion syndrome, which leads to cognitive, balance, and visual problems. The concussion causes chemical changes in the brain that alters its ability to function properly ultimately leading to an energy crisis within the brain. After concussions, your brain needs more energy to function.

Signs and symptoms of a concussion can last for hours, days or even months. They can also appear immediately or within several days after the injury. Some examples are dizziness, headache, neck pain, fogginess/difficulty concentratibg, visual blurring/double vision, sensitivity to light or noise, memory or balance problems.

How can Peak help you? Education, balance and proprioception, vestibular, oculomotor, neck ROM and postural strenght and endurance.
