Abstract

INTRODUCTION: While most individuals recover in the initial days to weeks following a concussion, in up to 30% of cases symptoms and functional limitations may persist beyond the initial four weeks. There is emerging evidence that multifaceted physiotherapy techniques for individuals who have ongoing symptoms following concussion may be of benefit.

PURPOSE: The purpose of this masterclass article is to summarize the evidence for rehabilitation, describe treatment techniques and multifaceted interventions following concussion. IMPLICATIONS: Concussion is a heterogenous injury and multiple types of rehabilitation may be required to address ongoing alterations in function. A greater understanding of evidence based rehabilitative techniques will enable the clinician to direct treatment and facilitate recovery for individuals who have ongoing symptoms following concussion.
