A concussion is a pathophysiological process resulting in neurological impairments in response to a forceful impact directly on or transmitted to the head, neck, or face. ~300,000 concussions occur in high school athletes in the US, making sports 2nd to MVA as leading cause of concussions. Post-Concussion Syndrome (PCS) occurs when side effects are persistent past the 10 day period. 10% of people will develop PCS following a concussion. In previous research, cervico-vestibular rehabilitation and direct attention to the patient’s intolerance to activity is vital in order to return an athlete back to sport. The purpose of this case report was to describe physical therapy (PT) management and outcomes of a young athlete who sustained PCS.
