Concussion Management Treatment Advice

Concussions are one of the most serious injuries Physiotherapists at Absolute Rehab Centre help treat. A concussion occurs when the brain suffers a traumatic injury after it is shaken extremely hard. The brain is meant to stay in its position to support its functioning, so when a concussion occurs, patients find themselves suffering from changes in how their brain operates and how their body feels. Our Physiotherapists in Waterloo help patients to heal and resume normal functioning through concussion management.
