Understand The Symptoms Of A Concussion!

Get Connected With Equinox Integrative Wellness Center For The Details!

The major symptoms of a Concussion are due to the disturbance in brain’s metabolic function that occurs following either a blow to the head or as a result of the violent shaking of the head. Equinox Integrative Wellness Center is providing a unique Neuroscientific  receptor-based Concussion management services in West Vancouver. Signs Indicating A Concussion:

● Fatigue.

● Nausea.

● Vomiting.

● Slurred speech.

● Appearing dazed.

● Ringing in the ears.

● Dizziness or “seeing stars”.

● Delayed response to questions.

● Confusion or feeling as if in a fog.

● Temporary loss of consciousness.

● Amnesia surrounding the traumatic event.

● A headache or a feeling of pressure in the head.

Because concussion management is currently thought to be primarily a metabolic rather than structural injury, traditional neurodiagnostic techniques are often normal following the concussive insult. After a full neurological evaluation, the patient may need to go through our Computerized Neurocognitive Baseline Test and/or Video Nystgamography test (VORTEQ).

After interpretation the result then we offer a Functional approach to activate the compromised brain pathways that involve Vestibulo-Ocular system, Cerebellum, Frontal-Basilar and Mesencephalic areas through specific visual-sensory-motor neural integration using brain stem cranial nerve stimulation and balance work.

Plasma is a component present in blood and consists of around 93% water. It carries the red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets and lots of other important proteins and minerals around the body. PRP is the part of the blood that’s left when the red blood cells and other factors have been removed leaving just the platelets which contain antibodies and proteins our body uses to repair damaged skin cells. PRP vampire facelift is packed with the growth factors and stem cells needed to rejuvenate skin and reduce wrinkles, eliminate sagging folds and lines. PRP injections below the skin restore color, tone, and texture as well as rejuvenating new and younger tissue.

So, It’s not just vampires that are using blood to seek eternal youth, we can now utilize it to boost skin in ‘Vampire’ therapy treatment that helps keep skin looking youthful.

Platelet-Rich Plasma for Facial Rejuvenation

Platelet-Rich Plasma for Facial Rejuvenation

 

 

PRP Facial Rejuvenation  works by draining a small amount of blood from the patient and then centrifuged to break down to its different components. The plasma part of the centrifuged blood that contains most of the regenerative and anti-inflammatory components (Cytokines, Growth Factors, etc.) is then injected into the skin and neck areas where required. This is a very personalized and individualized care since everyone gets their OWN blood centrifuged. Skin is preserved, collagen enhanced and regenerated while giving a better tone to the face.

Considering that there are no known side effects to PRP injections, with this procedure you are able to improve your appearance in a stress-free process. The regenerative process takes up to 3 months for collagen build-up/reshaping and the effect could be noticeable for up to 24 months in many cases. These are the good side effects of Facial PRP:

  • Enhances skin elasticity, tone and thickness

  • Stimulates stem cell differentiation and proliferation

  • Triggers angiogenesis (forms new blood vessels)

  • Creates a volumizing effect

  • Revitalizes your skin

  • Rejuvenates aging skin

  • Treats fine lines and wrinkles

  • Restores your youthful appearance

  • Promotes hair growth

Make sure you find a clinic that provide Regenerative Medicine services and not General Practitioners that have it as ancillary to their family practice.  Read more »

Best Concussion Management & Recovery

Best Concussion Management & Recovery

 

As an ex-concussed individual who lost an appealing soccer scholarship, I was inspired to scuba-dive in the ocean of Functional Neurology with Dr. Frederick Carrick after chiropractic education to find some answers to my never-ending post-concussive miseries as a young professional. I found that too many of my untrained colleagues in the medical world claimed to have the answer to concussion and too many call themselves the “complete” concussion treatment or management centers. Unfortunately, very few can live up to that claim. Not my intention to criticize anyone’s approach to concussion, as I only intend to shed light on what could be a realistic approach and goal for the patients.
