What is a concussion?
A concussion is a traumatic brain injury that affects the way your brain functions. Concussions occur when you undergo a sudden and quick movement to your head and neck or with impact. This can happen as a result of contact sports, a car accident, during a fall, or physical abuse. You might experience temporary or long-lasting symptoms, depending on the severity of your injury.
What are the symptoms of a concussion?
You may experience symptoms such as:
- Loss of memory
- Confusion or slurred speech
- Sensitivity to movement, light, sound, or computer screens
- Temporary loss of consciousness
- Seeing stars
- Nausea or vomiting
- Ringing in the ears
- Physical or mental fatigue, or fogginess
Symptoms of a concussion can last days, weeks, or even longer. They might appear right away or several days after your injury.
What is post-concussion rehab?
If you’ve suffered a concussion and you haven’t yet resumed full participation in your favorite everyday activities or sports, you might benefit from post-concussion rehabilitation at Mobilize Physical Therapy.
We use the following treatments to help you safely ease back into physical activity. Examples include:
During vestibular rehabilitation, we use various rehabilitative techniques to help you reduce dizziness and improve your balance. Vestibular rehabilitation helps decrease or eliminate lightheadedness, spinning, dizziness, and sensations of movement associated with a traumatic brain injury.
During exertion therapy, we help you slowly and safely ease back into physical activity after concussion. We utilize functional exercises, so you can regain strength and aerobic endurance – and reduce or eliminate post-concussion symptoms, such as dizziness, fatigue, weakness, and balance problems.
With proper post-concussion rehabilitation, your symptoms should subside or decrease significantly.
Don’t let effects from a concussion linger and prevent you from safely enjoying everyday activities or returning to sports. Schedule an appointment with Mobilize Physical Therapy by phone or online today.

“Love this place and these ladies! I was a patient of Kelcy and Shana’s back when they worked in Ballard, and they helped me tremendously with my low back issues.
Since then I’ve screwed up my knee (and it turns out my hip) and they are putting me back on the road to recovery. I will be running again soon! Pros: Parking lot, friendly sta, hour appointments.Cons: I have to drive here or ride my bike from Ballard.”
