Concussion Therapy

At Westside Wellness & Rehabilitation, we understand the importance of concussion therapy in sports and the challenges athletes face in managing head injuries. With nearly two decades of experience in concussion management, we provide expert care to help athletes recover safely and return to play with confidence.
A concussion is a brain injury caused by acceleration or deceleration of the brain within the skull following a significant impact to the head or elsewhere on the body. The impact causes a biochemical imbalance within the brain cells, resulting in decreased blood flow and temporary energy deficits within the brain. Symptoms may include loss of consciousness, headache, pressure in the head, neck pain, nausea or vomiting, dizziness, or balance problems, among others.
