Abstract

Objective: To identify and describe occupational and physiotherapy modalities used to support an interdisciplinary rehabilitation in adults (aged 16 + years) with concussion.
Methods: A scoping review methodology was used. Included studies were categorized according to Wade’s elements of rehabilitation and the Danish
White Paper definition of rehabilitation.
Results: Ten studies were included in this review, addressing: “assessment” (n = 9), “goal-setting” (n = 4), “training” (n = 10), and “social participation
and discharge support” (n = 4). Interventions were delivered mainly by physiotherapists or an interdisciplinary team. In 2 studies occupational
therapists were part of the interdisciplinary team. Randomized controlled trials more often addressed several of the rehabilitation elements using
interdisciplinary intervention delivery. No studies specifically aimed their intervention at patients with acute or subacute concussion.
Conclusion: The therapeutic modalities identified were: (i) manual and sensory motor interventions; (ii) physical exercises; and (iii) management of, or coping with, symptoms. More research is needed on how to better support social participation and discharge or return to work in the rehabilitation process. In addition, interventions delivered in the acute phases of concussion need
further exploration.
