Have you previously had a concussion and still feel a little “off,” or not like yourself? If so, you might have post-concussion syndrome, a complex neurological disorder that can cause a variety of symptoms.
Traditional diagnostic scans may fail to detect post-concussion syndrome. If your CT or MRI scan appeared to be “normal,” but you continue to experience problems with mood, memory, or cognition, NeuroHealth can help.
Understanding Concussions Most people know that a severe blow to the head can cause a concussion. But they may not know that concussions can also occur due to sudden acceleration or deceleration that causes the brain to shift inside the skull (for example, as the result of a car accident).
Concussions may cause mild symptoms for a few days, and most people tend to start feeling better within a few weeks. When symptoms linger or become worse – or if new symptoms emerge – post-concussion syndrome may be the cause. Left untreated, the symptoms of post-concussion syndrome can significantly interfere with one’s quality of life.
Even if you think you’ve never had a concussion, you should seek medical attention if you’ve been experiencing symptoms of brain dysfunction.
Get an Accurate Diagnosis NeuroHealth specializes in functional neurology, which is the science of examining and improving nervous system health. Instead of relying on a single diagnostic scan, we use a variety of tests to assess brain function and health. One of the tools we use is RightEye – a groundbreaking technology that tracks eye movements to assess brain health and other motor functions.
With a five-minute non-invasive RightEye test, we can immediately see any abnormalities in eye movements that may indicate brain injury. Then we can proceed to additional tests, such as balance and gait analysis, blood chemistry analysis, and endocrine (gland) system evaluation.
Your Path to Recovery Treatment of concussion or post-concussion syndrome varies from person to person. One patient may show significant improvement with weekly treatments, whereas another may benefit from our intensive five-day NeuroReset program. Whatever your goals may be – returning to competition, sleeping better at night, or just feeling like yourself again – we want to help you achieve them.
