Baseline Concussion Testing...A Priority!

  • Structural Evaluation

  • Focus Evaluation

Already Had A Head Injury?

If you do indeed have a concussion, or have lingering symptoms, we can address these in a functional medicine alternative way.

Part of the problem is that a head injury can manifest itself in many ways.

Brain tissue deterioration occurs over time and may continue for months after the initial injury.

There is also subsequent muscle weakness from trauma. These muscles are often "turned off" after trauma and need to be restored or "activated" to provide proper neurologial signaling to the brain.

If these muscles remain weak and the signal from the joints to the brain (proprioception) are compromised even in a minor way, we leave ourselves (or our children) open for injury. Injuries like ACL tears, shoulder or back sprians, herniated discs etc.

In addition, when the head and neck muscles are weakened, it can change the flow of lymph and cause a build up of toxins and waste products affecting the body systemically.

Historically, rest is the treatment of choice during the acute phase and then a gradual return to activity.

Nutritional supplementation is often ignored despite the research showing the overwhelming effectiveness.

Fish oil, Magnesium, Creatine, Curcumin, Boswelia, Natural whole food (not synthetic) Vitamin B's, C, D3 are all helpful.

The Journal of Neurosurgery reported that supplementation in rats with fish oil for 30 days after head injury had a greater than 98 percent reduction in brain damage compared to the animals that did not receive the supplement.
