The goal is to break down scar tissue and adhesions in order to optimize function in the body. The technique can be applied to both acute and chronic conditions involving the muscles, tendons, ligaments, nerves and fascia.
Post-concussion rehabilitation includes a thorough musculoskeletal and neurological assessment to determine the root causes of the symptoms the patient is experiencing. Your Physiotherapist will work with you to create a treatment plan consisting of evidence-based recommendations including providing education on rest and recovery as well as assisting with transition back to school and sports/activity.

This therapy uses guided or facilitated movements as a treatment strategy to ensure correlation of input from tactile, vestibular, and somatosensory receptors within the body.
