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. The only question left is: To what degree?

mTBI can lead to an array of physical, mental, and emotional issues, such as difficulty concentrating at school or work. 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.
