A Functional Medicine Approach To Concussion - Integrative Brain and Body

What is a Concussion?

A concussion is a mild traumatic brain injury that typically happens after a blow to the head. Normally the brain can adapt and recover from a concussion in days to weeks on its own, however, there are many people who have lingering symptoms that occur for weeks, months or even years after a concussion.

Post-Concussion Syndrome is a complex condition in which various symptoms linger after the initial concussion. These symptoms can range from: brain fog, dizziness and headaches – to things like – depression, anxiety/irritability, focus/sleep issues.

Post-Concussion Syndrome is more common that many people realize

Roughly half of people who have had a concussion have lingering symptoms 3 months later, and many people still have symptoms years after the initial injury. Since concussions cannot be diagnosed on MRI, many patients find themselves losing hope and are frustrated with the current recommendations to help their Post-Concussion symptoms. Many patients find themselves playing the infamous “Doctor Merry-go-round” trying to find answers.

The doctors at Integrative Brain and Body have helped hundreds of patients overcome their lingering symptoms after a concussion. The approach for each patient must be unique as no concussion is the same. Each patient receives a comprehensive neurological evaluation, that looks at how various areas of the brain are working. Then we look at certain environmental, genetic and physiological factors that may impact the brains ability to heal. Each person then has custom tailored neurological integration exercises and a personalized program to improve their bodies physiology that might be creating roadblocks for the brains ability to heal. By integrating both body physiology and the neurology aspects of concussions, our patients have achieved long lasting symptom relief.
