History, Examination, Diagnosis, Referrals
On your first visit, we will review your records, obtain a thorough history and examination, and make necessary referrals for diagnostic tests such as X-Rays, MRI, CT scan, and referrals to specialists.
Ultrasound, Diathermy, Soft Tissue, and Muscular Procedures
Muscle tension and trigger points contribute to Concussion symptoms. Trigger point therapy, Graston Technique, Myofascial release, Ultrasound, use of heated stones, and Chinese Cupping are used to release and remove tension held in muscles and the structure of the upper back, neck, jaws, face, and head.
Neck and Head Alignment/Spinal Decompression/Chiropractic
Some of the exact same symptoms that are being diagnosed as a concussion and vestibular injury can be coming from misalignments in the upper neck. Most of the time, if there is a head injury there is also neck injury involvement, even if the patient isn’t experiencing neck pain. The alignment of the neck is extremely important when it comes to dizziness, headache, ringing in the ears, and other symptoms related to head injuries.
Frequency Specific Microcurrent
This therapy has been shown to dramatically accelerate ATP (healing energy) production in the body (upwards of 500%) and has had a phenomenal effect in treating concussion and vestibular injury symptoms. This adjunctive therapy has shown documented improvements in symptoms such as dizziness, pain, and headaches, improvements in EEG results, IMPACT testing, and Neuropsychological Exam results.
TMJ, Head and Skull Therapy
Direct work on muscles and bones of the head and skull increases circulation and blood flow and accelerates healing. By loosening the muscles and refining alignment in this area we see a decrease in painful muscle spasms, headaches, and symptoms of dizziness.
Dizziness, headaches, ringing in the ears, and pain around the eyes can also be coming from the much-used joint of the jaw. This area can replicate the exact same symptoms as someone with a concussion/vestibular injury and therefore also needs to be assessed and treated.
Acupuncture and Acupressure
Acupuncture is an important tool in aiding in endorphin release, decreasing inflammation, boosting immune system response, increasing circulation, relieving pain, and muscle spasms. This modality is has been very helpful to decrease concussion symptoms such as dizziness and headaches.
Oxygen Therapy & Clinical Nutrition
The brain thrives on oxygen & nutrient-rich blood for energy, memory, and cognition. Anytime there is an injury, the human body and brain heal most optimally if you can flood the system with the oxygen & nutrients it needs to heal. Oxygen Therapy & Nutritional supplementation coaching on “brain power foods” are essential to aid in full recovery.
