Concussion Treatment

Concussion Treatment

Doylestown Health's Concussion Management program is designed to help those recovering from a concussion learn to manage their symptoms and get back to normal activities.

What is a Concussion?

A concussion is described as a direct hit on a person's head, neck or face. This impact transmits a force to the brain that causes it to move forward then backward against the skull. A simple concussion can last 7 to 10 days and a complex concussion can last longer than 10 days. Every concussion is different and the effects vary from person to person.

Post-concussive Syndrome (PCS)

Post-concussive syndrome occurs when recovery from a concussion is beyond the normal recovery window of approximately three weeks. Doylestown Health offers additional rehabilitation and treatment to help these patients.

Vestibular Rehabilitation for PCS

The goal of vestibular therapy for PCS is to retrain the brain to reduce concussion symptoms using exercises to challenge the vestibular system. Certified vestibular therapists are able to treat many symptoms of PCS and manage the patient's return to work, activities or sports.
