Concussion Rehabilitation

After a concussion—a traumatic brain injury—get the care you need to help your body and mind start working more normally again. Visit a skilled physical therapist at Wayne UNC Health Care.

Do I Need Concussion Therapy?

If a doctor gives you a diagnosis of a concussion, physical therapy can help you relieve symptoms such as:

  • Dizziness
  • Headaches
  • Neck pain and stiffness
  • Trouble concentrating
  • Vision problems

Concussion symptoms don’t go away on their own. Rehabilitation can make you feel more like yourself.

What to Expect

During your initial, hour-long evaluation, your therapist will review your symptoms and recommend a care plan to retrain your brain and muscles on certain tasks. You may practice:

  • Exercises to improve balance and flexibility
  • Eye-tracking activities
  • Stretches

You’ll also learn how to prevent another brain injury, especially if you play sports.


Depending on your needs, you may benefit from physical therapy sessions up to three times a week. Keep appointments and practice your exercises as often as recommended to achieve the best possible long-term outcome.
