Concussion Management

  • KORT developed the first comprehensive concussion management program in Kentucky to better assist in the diagnosis, treatment and recovery of those injured. The KORT program does initial baseline cognitive testing of athletes to determine where they are prior to any injury, on-field injury management, coordination of treatment with the student's physician, post-concussion physical therapy, and post-injury testing (using the initial baseline test) to determine a student athlete's ability to return to play safely.

     

    Vestibular dysfunction can take away independence and safety by affecting your equilibrium and sense of balance. Symptoms include exaggerated sense of motion, lack of coordinated movement, dizziness, vertigo, nausea and vomiting, difficulty with walking, motion sickness, blurred vision with head movement, an inability to visually concentrate and/or sensitivity to busy environments.

     

    Vestibular Rehabilitation (VRT) is an exercise-based group of approaches designed to decrease dizziness, improve ability to stabilize vision, and retrain aspects of postural control due to vestibular dysfunction. Our vestibular specialists are trained in a variety of maneuvers and methods to treat vestibular dysfunction, including the Epley maneuver, Canalith repositioning, Brandt-Daroff, Semont's liberatory maneuver, and many others. KORT has more than two dozen locations with physical therapists that have completed vestibular rehabilitation training by The American Institute of Balance (AIB).
