Concussion can occur after mild to severe head trauma. The signs and symptoms of concussion can be varied and can include mild headache to severe cognitive functional loss.
At Vigor Physiotherapy we offer the assessment and rehabilitation of people with concussion.

A dazed or vacant look
Lying motionless on the ground/ slow to get up
Unsteady on feet/balance problems or falling over / incoordination
Loss of consciousness or responsiveness
Impaired balance, lack of confidence with mobility and falls
More emotional/irritable than normal
Grabbing or clutching their head
Mental clouding, confusion or feeling slowed down
Nausea or vomiting
Pressure in the head
Sensitivity to light or noise
