Physical therapy can address the underlying causes of of common concussion and post-concussion symptoms such as headaches, backaches, and neck pain.
Physical therapy includes techniques such as massage, exercise therapy, and heat and ice treatments.
Sometimes the collisions that cause concussions can produce other injuries such as whiplash or orthopedic injuries, which can be addressed with physical therapy.
If whiplash or orthopedic injuries are making the concussion symptoms worse, physical therapy for these injuries may reduce concussion symptoms. Concussion Legacy Foundation
