Effects of Concussions Can Last A Lifetime
FFNG utilizes comprehensive researched-based concussion evaluations and treatments have been shown to drastically help prevent concussions and expedite the road to recovery post-injury. This multifaceted approach allows a physician to make more accurate treatment decisions, such as return to learn/return-to-play decisions.
We employ the comprehensive B.E.A.C.O.N. evaluation along with utilizing cutting-edge technologies that look at all “facets of the diamond”. This helps to find the “kinks in the armor” that lead to decreased performance thresholds and expose athletes to injuries and/or concussions.
The Journal of the American Medical Association Pediatrics is reporting a dramatic increase in the rate of concussions in young athletes. The result of not appropriately assessing and treating mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI)/concussions from the onset of their occurrence can have grave consequences. The inflammatory cascades that follow brain injury start a chain of negative neurological events that will be life-altering.
Concussions/mTBI can lead to an array of physical, mental, and emotional issues, such as difficulty concentrating at school or work. The rate of suicide increases after just one concussion. The rate of Parkinson’s Disease increases 56% after TBI.
Functional neurology utilizes established treatment modalities in specific sequences, intensities, and other variables. Our comprehensive examination and diagnostic assessments enable FFNG to tailor patient-specific treatment programs.
Baseline Performance/Concussion testing can be the greatest gift you can give.
