A concussion can occur when you experience a blow to the head or the body which then causes the brain to “slosh” inside the skull. This produces inflammation and other chemical changes in the brain that can result in physical deficits and a variety of symptoms. Here at LifeMotion we focus on the importance of concussion recovery.
LifeMotion’s Concussion Management and Recovery Program
Helping you return to your daily activity means helping you manage your symptoms, introducing daily tasks as your brain can handle it and using exercise to increase the efficiency of all systems affected by concussion. Our approach to concussion management and recovery begins with a thorough evaluation of the functional, physical and emotional dimensions of these injuries.
Our multifaceted orientation guides our approach. We begin with a battery of tests:
- Visual testing
- Vestibular testing
- Balance testing
- Whiplash assessment
- Activity tolerance assessment
Life Motion’s team of experts includes physical therapists, speech therapists, craniosacral specialists, and more. Our goal is to understand and help address functional, physical, and emotional deficits standing between you and the life you’re accustomed to living.
Reintegrating with life after concussion therapy
Whether it’s work, school, sports, or everyday life, LifeMotion’s concussion management helps you transition back to your daily life. We work with employers, educators, and coaches. It’s a step by step process: as you can do more, we help you advance and put the devastating consequences of concussion behind you.
Are you among the 1.5 million people suffering from a concussion? People who suffer a concussion put off being evaluated, tested, and treated. If you suffer from a persistent headache, memory problems, confusion, pain, fatigue, dizziness or vertigo, or changes in your sleep pattern, it’s time you visited us at LifeMotion.
LifeMotion performs baseline screenings for many sports teams in the Tulsa area. By establishing baseline data, we’re better able to understand a concussion’s effect on balance, reaction time, and visual function. It’s a good idea for athletes and anyone with an active lifestyle.
