Importance of physical training

March 20, 2023

Physical training is an important part of rehabilitation for individuals who have experienced a concussion. This is because exercise can help to restore strength, endurance, and coordination, as well as reduce symptoms of brain fatigue.

After a concussion, it can be difficult to return to one’s regular exercise routine. It is important to start with light exercise and gradually increase the intensity to avoid overloading the brain. It may also be beneficial to exercise under the supervision of a physical therapist or trainer who has experience with concussion rehabilitation.

A good rehabilitation exercise program after a concussion may include different types of exercises to restore strength, endurance, and coordination. This may include:

  • Cardiovascular exercise, such as walking, running, or cycling.
  • Strength training to restore muscle strength and reduce the risk of falls.
  • Balance exercises to improve balance and coordination.
  • Cognitive exercises to improve memory, concentration, and attention.

Physical training is an important part of concussion rehabilitation. By restoring strength, endurance, and coordination, individuals can improve their quality of life and reduce symptoms of brain fatigue.
