Concussion/Brain Injury/Post-Concussive Syndrome diagnosis and treatment
With post-doctoral diplomates in Neurology and fellowships in Brain Injury Diagnosis and Rehabilitation, we provide comprehensive treatment of Concussion and Brain Injury in Maine, located in Portland. Treatment of Concussion and Brain Injury requires specific diagnosis, utilizing proper examination techniques along with sophisticated diagnostics such as Videonystagmography (VNG), Saccadometer (SACC) and Comprensive Assessment Posturography System (CAPS) to evaluate eye movements, positional errors, Cortical function, spinal function and balance/coordination. Once the appropriate diagnosis is made, a treatment plan will be recommended to fully restore normal functioning. These will often consist of one or many treatments utilizing Neurological Rehabilitation in the form of eye movements, repositioning maneuvers, balance/coordination, Physical Therapy and Specific Neurological Chiropractic Adjustments. Our care is extremely effective as we not only treat the cortex and basal ganglionic structures, but also the brain stem, cerebellum, peripheral and central vestibular systems and their connections with the spine and body. This relieves symptoms of dizziness, vertigo, double vision, inattention, lack of focus, emotional changes/personality, motivation, reading difficulties, driving difficulties, inability to withstand busy environments, avoidance, headaches, migraines, neck/upper back pain.
