    • Abstract:
      Background. Research has shown that 10 to 30% of concussions result in post-concussion syndrome (PCS). Previously, this has been managed largely by prescribing rest until symptoms subside. New research has shown that rest for more than a couple days can be detrimental to recovery. Purpose. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of targeted physical therapy for physiological, vestibulo-oculomotor, and cervicogenic impairments in PCS compared to rest and pharmacological intervention. Case description. The patient was a 44 -year-old male police officer with a work-related case of PCS who wanted to manage his symptoms without medications. The patient had concussion symptoms for six weeks leading up to the physical therapy intervention. He presented with decreased tolerance of physical exertion, which is characteristic of physiological dys function. Literature review. There has been a growing body of evidence in support of active treatment strategies to target the individual patient's physiological, vestibulo-oculomotor, and cervicogenic impairments. Physical exertion (aerobic exercise) has had research support for (a) decreasing symptoms, (b) shortening time for medical clearance, and (c) improving activity tolerance in patients with PCS. Discussion. In this case, the patient was able to decrease symptoms, improve physiological responses to exercise, and successfully return to work over the five-week intervention period. From this case study and current literature findings, active treatment strategies for PCS have been shown to be effective management tools for clinicians. Further research is needed to determine optimal dosing parameters and standardized assessment procedures for determining individual patient impairments.
