Sport and Concussion
Sports Vision’s role in concussion management is two-fold. Research has shown that vision training can decrease the number of concussions suffered during sports play. Research has also shown that vision training can treat post-concussion syndrome and get players back in the game faster. Scroll down to see how our Sports Vision doctors can help before, during, and after an unfortunate brain injury.
CUTTING-EDGE PREVENTION AND TREATMENT
Current research points to a decreased number of concussions among football players during the seasons where vision training was performed as part of a preseason training program. The thought is that better field awareness is gained through vision training and helps a player’s awareness and their ability to prepare to avoid concussion causing injuries. Larger clinical trials are taking place from the professionals to collegiate players to confirm that association.
Post Concussive Syndrome can affect 10-20% of all concussion patients, meaning their symptoms remain for weeks, months, or years after the initial injury. Since the eyes are part of the brain, most of the lingering symptoms affect vision. Studies have shown that optometric vision rehab can improve post concussion symptoms, and speed up the return of an athlete back to school or back to competition. If you think you’re experiencing any post concussive symptoms, we’re here to help.
