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.
