“A brain injury is not just an injury to the brain… it is an injury to your whole being.”

NO MORE CONCUSSION. 
NO MORE LONG-TERM EFFECTS.

Time keeps ticking and you’re still in the thick of post-concussion syndrome. Leaving projects half finished, losing focus, and living with a persistent ringing in your ears…it’s all been discouraging and disorienting. All the while, you’re still trying to come to terms with the brain injury that has left you feeling like you’re not feeling like your normal self. Your road to concussion-recovery can be long, lonely, and frustrating. We understand this pain and we have a treatment that can help.

A concussion is a traumatic brain injury that results in immediate, temporary loss of some brain functions. It is usually caused by an impact or a blow to the head, but it can also happen when there is a sudden change of motion that causes the brain to move, twist, and slam against the inside of the skull. The impact or motion damages brain tissue, and this damage results in symptoms that can begin immediately or they may take up to a day to appear. Falls are the most common cause of concussion and are also common if you play a contact sport, such as football or soccer. It’s a common misconception that a concussion causes a loss of consciousness, but in fact, most people do not blackout when the concussion occurs.

SHORT-TERM SYMPTOMS OF CONCUSSIONS:

  • Headache
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Fatigue or drowsiness
  • Blurry vision

LONG-TERM SYMPTOMS OF CONCUSSIONS:

  • Trouble concentrating
  • Memory problems
  • Irritability and other personality changes
  • Sensitivity to light and noise
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Hyperactivity

CONCUSSION SYMPTOMS IN CHILDREN:

Head trauma is common for children, especially in those wobbly toddlers. Yet, short-term effects of a bump to the head may not be recognizable since toddlers struggle with expressing how they feel. Some of the non-verbal concussion cues you should be aware of after a fall or bump include:

  • Appearing dazed
  • Listlessness
  • Lack of energy
  • Excessive crying
  • Crankiness
  • Changes in eating or sleeping habits

“If we can reduce the impact of concussions on people, we will help society as a whole. And I think that’s worth striving for.”
