Receive The Best Concussion Overview From Teton PT &Rehab CONCUSSION MANAGEMENT

Concussions are common with a 71% increase in occurrence in youths between 10-19 years old, according to a 2016 Blue Cross Blue Shield Health of America Report. With the most at risk athletes being girls soccer players, football players, and boys ice hockey players. Even though concussions are common among youths a concussion can occur at any age. Interestingly a concussion does not

have to come from a blow to the head. A concussion can be caused from whiplash, falls, or any strong force causing the brain to move quickly. Concussion symptoms can be varied causing lasting physical and mental difficulties. Due to the complexity of the symptoms a patient can experience, we have developed an interdisciplinary approach which includes physical therapy and speech pathology.
