A concussion is a type of traumatic brain injury (TBI), which is any disruption in healthy brain functioning due to a bump, blow, blast, or other injury to the head. You don’t need to black out or be diagnosed with a concussion to experience lasting cognitive, psychological, or behavioural issues.
Research has shown that head injuries are a major cause of mental health problems, but few mental healthcare professionals know how to associate head trauma with the development of symptoms because many patients may have experienced a past head injury, and not actually remember it.
Head injuries are serious. They can cause a wide range of problems. They can cause confusion, difficulty concentrating, memory problems, moodiness, angry outbursts, balance issues, increased anxiety and even cause you to have suicidal thoughts.
Designed specifically for the root cause of your symptoms
Unfortunately for many of those who sustain them, brain injuries that don’t result in a loss of consciousness often go unnoticed and are never treated.
The brain is a magnificent organ; however, it is very soft — literally the consistency of soft butter. The skull is very hard in order to protect the brain and there are many sharp boney ridges inside, which hold the brain in place. When you hit your head or when your head bounces around enough (as in a whiplash injury), your brain collides with the inside of the skull, causing damage.
While some people develop symptoms immediately following a TBI, others find their symptoms emerge over a period of weeks or months. As a result of this delay, the underlying cause of the symptoms is often forgotten and not uncovered. Many times, doctors simply don’t ask about possible injury to the brain or actually look at the brain with imaging. Instead, the problems are frequently attributed to a psychiatric condition and the person is treated with medication.
People who start their treatment with a ROOT CAUSE diagnosis get better quicker. Not only that, the benefits tend to last much, much longer
