Booking into Fox Physio in Taupo for concussion treatment can help you to make a full recovery from this often-debilitating condition. While most people may make a rapid recovery after a knock to the head, in some cases dealing with a concussion can be a difficult process. It’s possible that many and various symptoms will need to be addressed as part of the treatment process. Each patient may present with slightly different symptoms, and it’s important that your therapist takes a wholistic view – and has a broad toolbox of treatments which can be applied.
Wide Ranging Symptoms
Oftentimes concussion patients who arrive at Fox Physio will be dealing with issues across the entire body – not just the head. Symptoms can range from an upset stomach, through to severe Neurofatigue. There is even evidence to suggest that a concussion can set off hormonal imbalances, and a common side effect of this kind of physiological imbalance is depressive feelings. We hear a lot about brain fog these days in relation to long Covid, this can also be a symptom of concussion which can be successfully treated with the right approach.
Gut Health and Serotonin Depletion
Are you aware that the gut is largely responsible for serotonin production in the body? A lack of serotonin can lead to fatigue and anxiety and a concussion may need to be treated with probiotics alongside manual therapy, acupuncture, an intelligent targeted exercise program and dry needling. Fox Physio takes a look at the whole body when a concussion is present, making sure that nothing is overlooked.
