A WHOLE NEW APPROACH TO CONCUSSION
Concussion management services in West Vancouver- Concussion symptoms are due to 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. At Equinox Wellness we utilize the most advanced diagnostic technological tools not fully available in BC’s concussion/brain clinics. After a full neuromusculoskeletal assessment we may use Computerized Neuro-cognitive Baseline Test (ImPACT Test), C3Logix Concussion Management System, Neurosensory Integrator, Micromedical Binocular Video Oculography, EQ Brain Tracking Technology, Cambridge Brain Science Testing as well as RightEye assessment to enhance our diagnosis as well as plan for the best outcome possible.
After interpretation the result then we provide a Functional approach to activate the compromised areas of the nervous system through specific visual-sensory-motor and/or cranial nerve stimulation, balance work and adjustment/manual therapy.
Our physicians (ND), at times, utilize neurotransmitter test or hormone tests to address the metabolic deficiencies of the brain and nervous system with specific Intravenous vitamins and minerals through our ND specialists. Our multi-specialty and multi-disciplinary approach makes the Equinox Concussion Management so exciting and highly successful in the Pacific Northwest! It’s a whole new approach with a goal of providing noticeable relief of many symptoms that is safe with long lasting results!
FINALLY REACHING THE SOURCE OF POST-CONCUSSION MIGRAINE RELIEF
For years scientists have known that migraine, headache and facial pain is controlled by a nerve cluster called the Sphenopalatine Ganglion (SPG) located in a difficult to reach area of the nasal cavity. The challenge has been, how to get medication or a topical anesthetic to the SPG to provide immediate headache relief without painful treatments or even invasive surgery. With the MiRx Protocol, the solution is as simple as a nasal spray. The procedure isn’t painful and take seconds by our NDs.
HOW MIRX WORKS – SIMPLE AS A NASAL SPRAY
It starts with an ingenious applicator and a simple nasal spray. Because the SPG is located deep in the nasal cavity, a normal nasal spray cannot reach the desired location. Unlike other nasal sprays, the revolutionary, Tx360™ nasal applicator has a soft flexible extension that allows the anesthetic agent to be sprayed directly on to the SPG. There are no needles.
The result is instant headache relief. The treatment takes less than a minute and most patients report a pain rating decrease from eight to two within seconds.
FAST AND SAFE, WITH NO LONG-TERM COMPLICATIONS
With the MiRx Protocol, you can avoid the complications or potentially dangerous side effects associated wi-term use of prescription medications or OTC painkillers. The MiRx Protth longocol is even safe for use on pregnant patients.
This is a total headache & migraine treatment plan. The MiRx Protocol has been clinically proven to provide long-term results with instant migraine & headache relief. (Read Clinical Studies) Some patients can experience lasting migraine relief after just one treatment, but those who have experienced chronic migraines or headaches for years may require the full treatment program for maximum benefit.
