Craniosacral Therapy (PTs and liscensed massage therapists)

See our page on Craniosacral therapy, which can be quite effective for concussion symptoms. Additional research about Craniosacral therapy and visceral mobilization here.

Pro Motion is not a concussion clinic, but they provide several therapeutic modalities which can help concussion patients. From Elizabeth Edwards, senior staff therapist: “Many of our therapists are trained in craniosacral work and visceral mobilization, both of which have been shown in studies to help treat the symptoms of concussions and post concussive syndrome..We also do a lot of cervical and thoracic spine work (addressing) these areas with soft tissue work, muscle energy techniques (to help with alignment), and helping to inhibit hypertonic muscles.” Pro Motion PT doesn’t do much vestibular work.
