Concussion is a common and potentially disabling condition that affects people of all ages as a result of trauma sustained in sport, motor vehicle crashes, military service, work and recreational accidents. The multifaceted nature of concussion requires a comprehensive view of physical, cognitive and psychological functions. Physical therapists play a key role in facilitating recovery after concussion and identifying concussion in patients referred for other reasons; however necessary expertise spans multiple areas including sports medicine, orthopedics, neurology and vestibular function. Intervention for individuals who do not recover quickly after concussion has not been well described in the literature; therefore, best practice is not clear.
