What is a Concussion?

When your brain receives a sudden blow it goes into a state of concussion. They can be easily found out with Concussion signs & Symptoms.

These mostly happen due to workplace injury, motor vehicle/ bicycle accidents, Sports injuries & falls. When your head hits an object or receives a hit the potassium cells will quit your brain cell- neurons and calcium cells get into it as a defense mechanism(refer). Research shows that this condition can recover within the first few hours or even take months.

This condition will make your brain work slower and will utilize all of your energy. Even everyday activities can become burdensome because of the inability of the brain to produce more energy for you. 

Even everyday activities can become burdensome because of the inability of the brain to produce more energy for you..These calcium cells usually take time to get released out of the neurons, this will happen once the brain feels it is in a safe and sound environment it will let loose of those calcium cells and get back to its original form. This process takes time. A concussion management plan will help you to recover without any side effects from it.

Most of us are in a work/ school environment where we cannot afford to lose classes and workdays. For managing this a recovery management plan will be necessary and will help you to recover at your best phase. These managing plans are prepared by our experienced physicians at Granville Physiotherapy only after a serious examination of the patient’s current condition.

Physiotherapist advised: Concussion Management & Rehabilitation Tips:

01.Rehab with less screen time

When we are on our mobile screens our brain automatically starts to consume things it sees. This will utilize your brain energy which you can conserve for later, real user needs.

Until a smartphone screen is your priority of work you can avoid screen time and give yourself and your brain some energy to regenerate energy. Generating energy during a concussion will be the most difficult task for a brain to handle.

The period during concussion must be managed in a way that we use our energy only for doing specific activities that are needed. People with concussions sleep all day in bed and scroll social media for the rest of their day thinking it is rest, but the sad reality is it is not. All physiotherapists agree that scrolling social media utilizes our energy and leaves us more drained. It also uses our cognitive ability and hence burns more energy. This is the main knowledge everybody needs to know while managing their concussions. 

02.Meditation For Concussion rehab

Meditation is a process where your only job is to bring your wandering mind back to the breath consciousness. A running motorbike requires fuel to run, and in the same way, our body requires breath to survive. Breath is one of the most important fuels to our body, it helps us to be alive. When we take control of our breath and start living with it, our energies will never be wasted on unwanted thoughts and habits. It will be easy to handle yourself during your concussion rehab. Practicing meditation can also take you into a meditative state while you work. Doing this will make your work much easier and help you to conserve energy even when you are working. This will give you the mental and physical strength you need. Practicing meditation is one of the best ways to conserve your energy.

Practicing meditation will also help your brain to release all the calcium cells much faster. Meditation will restore all the functional disabilities in your body and help you to recover from all possible injuries & traumas both mentally and physically. 

03.Mindfulness Physiotherapy

Mindfulness- physiotherapy is a conscious process where you decide what to think and respond to your surroundings accordingly. With concussion management practices there is no point worrying about your future and your past mistakes, it only takes the little energy your brain generates. Mindfulness helps us to stay in the present by focusing on what’s around us and helps us to live with it. Concussion rehabilitation will involve a lot of mindfulness practices that can show magical results. Physiotherapists in Edmonton and around the world are adapting Mindfulness & meditation practices for concussion rehabilitation.

The mindfulness practice will put you in a conscious state where you will observe what your brain is thinking and help you to let it go and further help you to become the new person you aspire to be.

By adapting mindfulness during your concussion management you can also grow a chance to become a better person than you were. In times of managing your concussions 

04.Good Sleep

A night of good sleep can help your brain recover faster, sleep is the cleaning mechanism for your brain. The right amount of sleep is mandatory while recovering.

05.Limit activity

Limiting your activity will help you conserve more energy and use it in the future. Since our brain produces only less amount of energy during a concussion it is better to limit our activity to a minimal level. Also, it can be your off time, your rehab time can give you the amount of rest you deserve.

06.Progressive overload physiotherapy 

We as Physiotherapy professionals advise on how to overload your brain after a concussion progressively. A sudden increase in activity will leave our brain in a traumatic state, so it is important to go through the suggested management plan. This will give the best progressive overload to your brain and help it attain maximum brain functions.
