Concussions or traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) initiate a cascade of events that lead to accelerated neurological inflammation. In short, your brain is on fire.
When you take a hard blow to the head or body, your brain can bounce around inside your skull. The brain is extremely delicate and protected by three thin layers of membranes, called meninges, and our skull. When we are hit hard, the brain blows past those layers and bounces against the skull, causing a whole host of changes in cognition, mental acuity, personality, balance, sleep, and energy levels.
Concussions can cause temporary or long-term headaches, irritability, memory loss, changes in behavior, and more. We offer personalized solutions that help to put this fire out and help you regain optimal brain function.
The effects of a concussion can last for days, weeks, and even years if not treated properly. It is imperative to seek medical treatment as soon as possible after experiencing a concussion and to follow through with any and all treatment plans recommended.
