The Problem: you are not getting better after your Concussion.
Most adults who sustain a concussion have symptoms that subside within 10-14 days.
If your symptoms persist beyond the expected recovery time frame, then research says the multidisciplinary rehabilitation, what we do at BRN, is needed to help you get better.
The Solution: BRN Post-Concussion Bootcamp
BRN Post-Concussion Bootcamp will:
1- Educate you (and family) about current protocols, so that you experience results and get back to living your life.
2- Engage in productive and solution oriented rehabilitation with a team of experts (physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, psychology and rehab medicine)
3- Inspire you to move forward, there is hope for a better tomorrow, lets go get it!
Don't get stuck, get better so you can get back to life! A 2018 study estimated that between 11.4% and 38.7% of people with concussions will develop post-concussion syndrome.
Untangle your Post-Concussion Symptoms (PCS) and get better.
Persistent Concussion Symptoms or Post-Concussion Syndrome (PCS) fall into four categories:
Headache or the feeling of "pressure" in the head is a common symptom
Sensitivity to Light and/or Sound
Ringing in the Ears
Balance problems, dizziness
Fatigue "Fuzzy", double, or blurry vision, trouble with reading
Rarely, decreases in taste and smell
Reduced tolerance to stress, emotional excitement, or alcohol
Difficulty with memory, or remembering new information
Difficulty with attention
Difficulty with thinking clearly
Difficulty with focus or concentrating
Confusion or mentally slowed down
Sleeping more than usual (common just after a concussion)
Sleeping less than usual, or trouble falling asleep (typically when more time has elapsed since the concussion)
Sleep disturbance (sleep cycle is interrupted)
Mood / Behavioral:
Irritability that didn't exist before the concussion
Sadness or depression that didn't exist before the concussion
Anxiety or nervousness that didn't exist before the concussion
Apathy that didn't exist before the concussion
**these mood/behavioral symptoms could be pre-existing and made worse/altered by the concussion
