Complete Concussion/TBI Managament

Each concussion case is unique to the individual.

Advanced management of concussions and mild traumatic brain injuries (mTBIs) involves a deeper comprehension of the intricate aspects of cognition, vision, emotions, autonomic functions, balance, sensory processing, and motor control systems that are affected, as well as the therapeutic techniques employed to restore their normal functioning.

Our Approach

Our unique approach of assessing all things neurological, structural, and metabolic can uncover issues that other providers may have missed, and that could make all the difference in your recovery. 

 

Your rehabilitation experience starts with a comprehensive Neuro-Exam that looks at your personal history as well as the Seven Key Systems involved in brain health: Autonomic, Oculomotor, Affect, Cognitive, Somatic, Proprioceptive, and Vestibular. By assessing these systems, we can identify the areas of your brain suffering from injury or trauma. Your Neuro-Exam is a two-hour exam to diagnose and identify the contributing factors of your condition. If you elect to stay for a full Discovery Day, the exam will be followed up with a one-on-one therapy session with your doctor. Most people who join us for a Discovery Day go on to book a full Intensive Program.

Discovery Day

A report of findings and a one-on-one therapy session with your doctor.

Calendar

Intensive Program

A 5-day Personalized Neuro-Recovery Program entirely customized to your needs.

Intensive Program Example Schedule

Your Intensive Program is entirely customized to your needs; each person's experience will vary slightly, but on average daily schedules will consist of two to three therapy sessions taking place between 9:00 am - 5:00 pm and an average of up to 15 hours of therapy throughout the week.

One

Day 1

The week begins with a Neuro-Exam: diagnostic tests, report of findings, and upon reviewing your results, your personalized neuro-recovery program is created.

Now it’s time for your initial therapy session to improve your condition and leave you with a sense of progress and accomplishment.

TIME

Up to three one-hour sessions

Two

Day 2 

You'll arrive in the morning and begin your first of three one-hour therapy sessions.

Throughout the day, you'll be working one on one with your doctors to execute your personalized therapy program based on your day-one diagnostics and report of findings.

 

TIME

Up to three one-hour sessions

Three

Day 3

Midweek is similar to day 2 but with the added excitement of repeating your diagnostics to highlight what has improved and adjust your program accordingly.

Therapy is continued, and the day ends with a calming recovery session.

TIME

Up to three one-hour sessions

Four

Day 4

With your program having been refined mid-week, you'll come into day four with a refreshed therapy experience and spend the day working with your Doctor toward your recovery.

TIME

Up to three one-hour sessions

Five

Day 5

Last but not least, on your final day, we'll rerun your diagnostic assessments from day one, as needed to map out your progress.


Then on to your final therapy session before diving into your at-home program development and training.

TIME

Up to two one-hour sessions

Post-Intensive Program

Your therapy won’t stop when you go home. After your 5-Day intensive Program, you’ll have two months of at-home support and an app to help you track ongoing improvement and symptoms and function.

  • Optional Lab Tests with a review of results via phone call

  • Home Nutrition Program

  • Nutritional Supplementation

  • Bi-Monthly email Check-ins

  • Phone call check-in once every three weeks (3 total)

  • Regular review of Brain EQ progress score

Ongoing Care

After your Intensive Program and two months of at-home support, you may still want to continue getting ‘tune-up’ therapy. Once your recovery plan has been completed, you can talk with your doctor about your options and your condition for additional visits and therapy.

The graphic includes common signs such as headache, dizziness, memory problems, sensitivity to light and noise, and mood changes. Understanding these symptoms is essential for recognizing and managing the effects of concussions and post-concussive syndrome for better recovery and long-term neurological health.

Different Symptoms of Concussion

 

AUTONOMIC

  • Dizziness, lightheadedness, fainting/passing out, chest pain, heart palpitations/heart racing, headaches, brain fog, anxiety, depression, fatigue, sleep disorders, stomach pain, diarrhea, constipation, nausea, vomiting, muscle/joint pain, unstable joints in the body, and discoloration of hands and feet.

OCULOMOTOR/VISUAL

  • Blurry vision, brain fog, dizziness, double vision, light sensitivity, nausea, poor spatial awareness, and sensitivity to motion.

AFFECT

  • Anxiety, confusion, depression, easily stressed, irritability, more emotional, nervousness, restlessness, sadness.

COGNITIVE

  • Confusion, difficulty concentrating, forgetfulness, memory loss, mental fog, repeat questions, slow processing.

HEADACHE

  • Moderate to severe headache or migraine that was new or significantly worse compared with baseline and correlated with nausea and photophobia or phonophobia.

SOMATIC

  • Balance problems, changes in smell, metallic taste, neck pain, numbness/tingling, poor body awareness.

VESTIBULAR

  • Brain fog, dizziness, dazedness, slowness, headaches, nausea, poor balance, poor coordination, ringing in the ears, sound sensitivity, vertigo, feeling overwhelmed in crowds, and anxiety in the car.

 

COMBINED

  • Individual areas of the brain communicate with one another. Therefore, dysfunction in one place can disrupt a distant brain region, causing various symptoms that may seem unrelated and vary from person to person.
