Head Injuries and Concussion
The Body Compass
Rehabilitation for Head Injuries and Concussion
Rehabilitation for head injuries and concussion is a gradual exercise-based programme. It is tailored to your specific injury and associated dysfunction and works to create a change in your neurology, improve function and relieve symptoms.
During this process, you will perform exercises focusing on the parts of the body and nervous system that have been injured. In many cases, these exercises use associated systems in the body. For instance, eye movements can be very challenging in many concussion cases; however, using associated reflex pathways, such as the vestibular ocular reflex, eye movements can be nurtured back towards normal function.
Rehabilitation for Head Injuries and Concussion in Auckland
My head injury and concussion rehabilitation programme follow three phases. They are:
Diagnosis, Trial and Relief. The focus here is to find the cause of the problem. At my Grey Lynn Clinic, I will assess your history, conduct a physical and neurological examination and perform tests to investigate your balance and visual system. I will also use state of the art eye tracking and balance testing equipment, as well as neurocognitive testing.
Correction and Rehabilitation. Once we know what is causing the problem, I will create a tailored programme for you. This includes regular exercises for you to do at home, and is supported by visits to my Auckland chiropractic clinic.
Stability and beyond. Vestibular treatment doesn’t finish when you’ve regained your balance. Regular checks going forward will help you to sustain your balance and other systems in your body that affect your wellbeing.
My head injury and concussion rehabilitation programmes have helped many people in Auckland to regain their balance, health and confidence. But don’t take my word for it; you can find reviews from my previous clients on my Google review page.
