Concussion & Dizziness

Offering Physical Therapy, Health Coaching & Yoga

What is a Concussion?

A concussion is a mild traumatic brain injury caused by direct impact (i.e. hitting your head) or indirect impact (i.e. whiplash) that causes injury to the brain.  Nearly 3 million people experience a concussion each year (CDC).  Many people recover without medical care, but for some, persistent symptoms remain; this is classified as post-concussion syndrome (PCS).  Common PCS symptoms include headache, motion sensitivity, nausea, light and sound sensitivity, difficulty sleeping, concentration and memory limitations, neck pain, and fatigue.  We help evaluate and treat both acute and chronic concussion symptoms.

The Vestibular System

The balance system consists of the sensory organs of the inner ear, the visual system, and the proprioception system (joints and muscles).  The brain processes sensory input from these systems to keep us oriented and balanced.  A vestibular disorder occurs when the sensory input is altered (a peripheral disorder), the brain has difficulty processing the sensory input (a central disorder), or both.  Common vestibular disorders include BPPV, Meniere's, vestibular neuritis or labyrinthitis, unilateral or bilateral vestibular hypofunction, and cervicogenic dizziness.  Conditions like Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson's, stroke, and POTS can also produce vestibular symptoms.  Common symptoms include dizziness, spinning sensation (vertigo), lightheadedness, double vision, feeling off-balance, and nausea.  Whether you've had symptoms for a short, or long time treatment can help and may include canolith repositioning (for BPPV), compensation, adaptation, and/or habituation.
