When you have been diagnosed with a concussion the most common recommendation by emergency rooms, family doctors, and evenneurologists is to go home and rest. It may be recommended that you rest completely in a dark room for several days, or that you maintain normal activity until symptoms return, and then rest, but rest is the most important thing. It is also either stated or implied that your symptoms will disappear after a few days (or weeks if you have a child or teenager), and that nothing else needs to happen.
The reality that we have discovered in our practice is that concussions (or even hits to the head, whiplash, and other similar injuries that would not typically be diagnosed as a concussion) lead to functional problems and deficits that often result in some combination of the following symptoms:
- Chronic Pain
- Chronic Headaches
- Lack of Motivation
- Behavioral Problems
- Poor performance at school or work
- Memory Problems
The great news is these problems can be treated and eliminated. You don't have to live with the problems caused by concussions you've experienced. Our treatment process addresses the physical, cognitive, and emotional problems caused by concussions, and in most cases results in elimination of the problems and a return to normal functioning.
We have had so many of our patients tell us, "I'm so glad I found you!" Join the growing number of people who are gaining Hope, Relief, and Freedom from the destructive life problems caused by a concussion!
