Concussion

Have you sustained a concussion? The Marathon Physical Therapy Concussion Program is dedicated to providing the highest quality of rehabilitation services.

Evaluation: Phase-one includes a comprehensive evaluation that includes a musculoskeletal, nuerological, vestibular and balance assessment to determine an individual’s symptoms and limitations.

Therapy: Phase-two consists of one on one individualized treatment with a licensed physical therapist to decrease symptoms and restore baseline function and mobility. We strive to facilitate a safe return to full activities by communicating with physicians, coaches, ATCs and school officials.

Concussion Facts: A concussion is a type of traumatic brain injury caused by a bump, blow or jolt to the head that can change the way the brain normally functions.
