It's not just a bump on the head, it's your brain getting sloshed around inside your head and bumping into bone. Then there's internal swelling, loss of blood flow to the brain and a chemical cascade of hormonal storm that follows. It's like a chemical tornado going on inside of your head.
At the Mladenoff Clinic we deal with patients who suffer from the consequences of concussions regularly. We strongly recommend every person receive a baseline test; it's a 15-20 minute battery of tests that allows us to give you a virtual start-and-finish line. We utilize stat-of-the-art technology QEEG Brain Mapping, RightEye Visual scanning and Balance Tracker programs designed by world class researchers in the concussion arena. We also boast a comprehensive (and drug/surgery free) care protocol that involves everything that influences your brain and nervous system. Whether it is our daily nutrient protocol, our customized Eye tracking exercises, or balance training. We strive to minimize the injury and maximize the recovery process in each person's brain.
If you have not yet had a baseline test that assesses your balance, vision and cognition or you suffer from 1 or more concussions, please contact us to learn how we can help.
From the average individual to the high level athlete, concussion is always a risk. However, here at The Mladenoff Clinic, our approach is to identify primary areas of neurological dysfunction and to tailor a specific program for that individual or athlete. Under the guidance of our team of doctors, athletes will train to react faster and be at optimum physical condition in all areas from strength to balance and stability. Just like putting the hours in at practice, reducing the risk of concussion or traumatic brain injuries prepares an athlete to step out onto the field with confidence.
