- Altered Movement of Gait
There are scientific reasons why medications alone may be failing to help you … and why they may actually be harmful in many cases. Yet, some doctors tell you nothing more can be done for you… or they conclude your problems are all in your head … or they assume you’re depressed and need to take even more meds! What a predicament! But here’s the thing: If you’re like so many others in the same boat, you don’t have to put up with a traditional lack of concern about the REAL cause (or causes) of your lack of a full recovery. You have a right to know what your REAL problems are. You have a right to know how you can get your life back! Please, please pay attention! It’s unlikely you’re going to hear this anywhere else for five or ten years:
As a Functional Neurologist I see post-concussion syndrome patients who do not get full neurological recovery both objectively and symptomatically by rest within the initial 30 days post injury. It is important to understand the majority of concussion sufferers that do feel better with rest may not really be recovered neurologically. It’s essential that they have the proper testing done to evaluate all the potential areas of their brain that may be affected by the concussion. These areas are not limited to the cognitive areas of the brain tested by a neurocognitive test but also the areas that affect balance, equilibrium, blood flow to the brain itself and other vital functions. Very often a concussion sufferer will pass a neurocognitive test meaning the cognitive areas of the brain are functioning well, but they may still have serious deficits in other areas causing their symptoms. If a player goes back to play with these deficits and functioning at less than 100% there is a greater chance that they will get hurt again.
