Concussion rehabilitation is a structured and personalized program designed to help individuals recover from the effects of a concussion, a mild traumatic brain injury often caused by a blow to the head or a sudden jolt to the body. The primary goal of concussion rehabilitation is to promote a safe and gradual return to normal activities while minimizing symptoms and preventing complications.

Concussion Complications

Most people with a concussion typically feel better within four to five weeks. In some cases, symptoms can continue for several months or longer. This condition is known as post-concussion syndrome or persistent post-concussive symptoms. It is rare after a first concussion but more common after repeated concussions. 

Get started with specialty care

Symptoms of post-concussion syndrome include:
  • Headaches
  • Dizziness
  • Fatigue
  • Irritability 
  • Anxiety
  • Trouble falling asleep or sleeping too much
  • Loss of concentration and memory
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Blurry vision
  • Noise and light sensitivity

When to Seek Specialty Care

Acute concussions typically resolve in 7-10 days, if your symptoms are continuing beyond 10-14 days, you may benefit from further testing. 


Depending on the person’s situation, assessments may include the following in a Comprehensive Exam:
  • A Comprehensive Exam, consisting of physical, occupational, and speech therapies will include:
    • Neurologic screen
    • Strength training
    • Dizziness Assessment
    • Balance Test
    • Headache Assessment
    • Pain Test
    • Planning and Abstract Thinking
    • Memory and attention assessment

After a concussion, thinking of solutions is often difficult, as I've been able to find exercises which help me make progress towards my goals of balance and returning to an active lifestyle. I've struggled with being able to tolerate the headaches that come with the cardio levels I was accustomed to, but with these exercises reccomended at Bancroft, I'm making steady progress and I am less frustrated because I understand more about the recovery process.
