What is Post Concussion Syndrome?

A Concussion happens after an impact to our head, causing a traumatic injury to our brain, temporarily affecting brain function.

It causes symptoms such as:

  • Headaches
  • Poor concentration and memory
  • Issues with balance and co-ordination.

These often resolve quickly.  It can take up to:

  • 2 weeks in adults
  • 3-4 weeks to 2-3 months in young adults and children.

However, 5-15% of people, may continue to suffer from symptoms, these cases are described as Post Concussion Syndrome.

What are the Symptoms?

Every person is different but symptoms can include:

  • Dizziness
  • Headaches
  • Nausea
  • Balance problems
  • Fatigue
  • Sleep difficulties
  • Sensitivity to motion and visual stimulation such as bright lights or turning your head.
  • Cognitive difficulties e.g. memory, speech, finding the right words.

What Our Clients Say About Us

Chad – Oakville

I've been coming here for a couple of months for treatment after shoulder surgery. Juny is a fantastic physiotherapist. Professional, knowledgable and thorough. It's a great place for treatment.

Michelle Strong, Oakville

I came in with terrible dizziness. Paul was amazing. He diagnosed and treated me quickly and already after 1 session I am feeling so much better.

Kristy (Christine) – Oakville 

Paul is amazing!! My daughter is a competitive gymnast and Paul is focused on healing as well as prevention. He goes above and beyond, making sure he always has time to see her, to ensure she can continue with her training pain free.

Bonnie – Oakville

I came to Paul as he was recommended to me by another Physio in Vancouver for IMS treatments. I was suffering from Plantar Faciitis that had caused such pain in my hip that I could not walk without pain. I had been seeing a chiro for the pain for a year and saw no improvement. After the first treatment with Paul I saw some improvement and after just a few months I am pretty much pain free! Paul's approach is very unique as he doesn't just treat the symptom. He looks at the body as a whole and works on correcting all of the different parts that are affected. I highly recommend him as he is very thorough and goes above and beyond to help you.

Sarah – Hamilton

I see Paul once a month for IMS Treatment. I travel from Hamilton to Oakville and it is well worth the drive. My treatments allowed me to heal and now I’m on a maintenance schedule to help keep me working and playing pain free. If your injuries keep on coming back, book in with Paul. He can help! If it’s a new injury, make him your first choice.

Diana - Mississauga

I had ACL and meniscus surgery recently and Paul has been helping me out with my rehabilitation. I also saw Gabe a few times for acupuncture and massages related to my injury. They make sure you are comfortable with and informed about the treatment and exercises in your rehab plan. I highly recommend their services!
