A WHOLE NEW APPROACH TO CONCUSSION
Concussion management services in West Vancouver- Concussion symptoms is a disturbance in brain function that occurs following either a blow to the head or as a result of the violent shaking of the head. Existing research suggests that concussion symptoms produces metabolic rather than anatomic injury to the brain. In other words, following concussion symptoms there is a temporary disruption of energy utilization in the brain that does not appear to produce permanent injury in the majority of cases. However, research also suggests that repeated injury, particularly during the recovery period, may result in more severe and, in some rare cases, life-threatening injury. It is important to emphasize that the underlying pathophysiology of concussion management is still being investigated and the definition of the injury continues to develop. Because concussion management is currently thought to be primarily a metabolic rather than structural injury, traditional neuro-diagnostic techniques (e.g., CT scan, MRI) are often normal following concussive insult. After a full neurological assessment we provide the patient with our Computerized Neuro-cognitive Baseline Test (ImPACT Test).
After interpretation the result then we provide a Functional approach to activate the compromised pathways that involve Vestibulo-Ocular system, Cerebellum, Frontal-Basilar and Mesencephalic (Flight or Flight Wind-Up) areas through specific visual-sensory-motor neural integration using brain stem cranial nerve stimulation and balance work. Our state-of-the-art rehab system addresses Eye-Hand Coordination, Fixation, Peripheral Awareness, Figure-Ground, Visual Search, Speed of Recognition, Visual Spatial Memory, Automaticity of letter, number and word naming, Visual Acuity Enhancement, Contrast Sensitivity, Vision Directing Action, Visual Cognitive, Divided Attention, Vision Directing Action, Visual-Auditory Integration, Sequencing, Math, Reading fluency, Visual Reaction Time, Hand Speed and Accuracy, Central-Peripheral Integration, Bilateral Integration, Saccades, Contrast Sensitivity, Vision Directing Action and Auditory Memory among other factors associated with post-concussion.
We may utilize neurotransmitter test to address the metabolic deficiency associated with amino acid dys-utilization with specific Intravenous vitamins and minerals. That’s what makes the Equinox Concussion Management so exciting! It’s a whole new approach with a goal of providing noticeable relief of many symptoms that is safe with long lasting results!
