Are you still struggling with concussion symptoms?
Most concussion symptoms resolve within a few weeks of the accident. But for some unlucky people they can continue for months and even years.
One of the big difficulties is that multiple systems are normally affected. And the way the medical system is set up, you end up seeing a different practitioner for each symptom.
Unfortunately this isn’t the way your body works. Your body is intricately connected, with any one system having the ability to affect multiple systems.
This is why people can end up chasing symptoms for years.
At Smarter Training, we use a truly holistic approach to dealing with concussions.
We start with a comprehensive functional brain assessment designed by Dr Eric Cob along with a detailed history to work out a starting point for your recovery program.
The assessment includes:
- Vitals (Blood pressure x 4, heart rate, oxygen saturation)
- Breathing (6 respirations tests)
- Peripheral nerve testing
- Cranial nerve testing
- Muscle testing
- Sensory testing (skin, superficial fascia, deep fascia, light touch, vibrations etc.)
- Vision testing (Convergence/divergence, gaze stability, saccades, tracking etc.)
- Vestibular testing (Vestibular ocular reflex, vestibular ocular reflex cancelation etc.)
- Cerebellum testing
- GAIT analysis
Based on the assessment we create target exercises for you to work on to restore dysfunctional area.
In addition to the neurological side of things, there is a lot of research showing that when people receive head trauma it causes something called leaky gut.
Leaky gut causes inflammation, which is another cause of long term symptoms. So in some instances we might need to dig deeper and run functional lab tests.
Based on the results of the lab tests, we can then recommend dietary and supplement changes to address the issues.
We also believe that it is important to communicate and work alongside any other practitioners you are seeing.
