Concussions can steal the activities you love the most. From sports to simple daily tasks, we understand how frustrating concussions can be. Our concussion management therapy programs ensures you heal with precision and speed.
Your treatment sessions will focus on vestibular rehabilitation. This treatment includes reducing dizziness, ocular reflex training and tracking, balance and proprioception training, manual therapeutic techniques, cranial nerve assessment, change of position challenges, hand-eye coordination, body mechanics and posture, neck stabilization activities, sport/occupational specific training, and dual tasking with cognitive challenges. We want you to enjoy the activities you love again.
I had been to 6 other physical therapists in Michigan and California before I begged my doctor to send me to “whoever is THE BEST in West Michigan.” I’m so grateful he sent me to Hulst-Jepsen.Alyssa C.
Our concussion care program is designed for athletes who have sustained a concussion and are ready to return to sport, have completed formal physical therapy, or are symptom-free at rest. We use a graduated return to sport philosophy that is used from professional sports to high school sports. This allows for the athlete to increase activity safely overtime under the supervision and direction of a medical sports professional.
