Experienced Concussion Rehabilitation in Fort Worth, Texas
Comprehensive Concussion Treatment from Advantage Healthcare Systems
Even though concussions are relatively common—millions of Americans seek treatment for them every year—they are not to be taken lightly. What may seek like a minor bump or blow to the head can have serious consequences, such as brain bleeds, swelling and inflammation, which can affect you for weeks, months or years. The vast majority of people who suffer concussions have a positive result, with more than half recovering fully within a couple of weeks. But it’s critical to get the right type of care and to get it in a timely manner. Advantage Healthcare Systems can help.
At Advantage Healthcare Systems, we have helped victims of concussion injury for nearly 40 years, including men and women in Fort Worth. Everything we do is designed to help you return to a fully functioning life. We’ll look closely at your physical, behavioral and emotional condition, assessing your strengths and weaknesses. We work hard to help you maximize your abilities, and will simultaneously work to remediate or minimize your disabilities. We also believe that every patient should develop and implement a thorough plan to improve health and fitness, and minimize the risk of future injury or illness.
Every concussion injury looks just a little different, and every person who suffers a concussion needs a different treatment regimen. That’s why we take a multidisciplinary approach, providing you access to medical doctors, chiropractors, occupational therapists, physical therapists, social workers and counselors, so that we can address all your healthcare needs.
Physical Therapy for Concussions in Fort Worth
In most instances, the prognosis for recovery from a concussion injury is very good, but you need to take the right steps immediately after your accident. Unless you need to go immediately to the emergency room at the hospital, you should schedule an appointment with your primary care physician. Your doctor will diagnose your condition and either prescribe treatment or refer you to a specialist who can address your specific needs, such as a physiatrist or a neurologist.
At Advantage Healthcare Systems, we have primary care physicians on staff who can conduct an initial assessment of concussion or other head injuries. We also have specialists, such as physical and occupational therapists, speech therapists, cognitive skills professionals, and skilled personnel who can help with anger management and other psychological or emotional trauma.
