Concussions are frequently induced by a blow to the head via sports, falls, car accident, domestic abuse, and even shaken baby syndrome. Most people who suffer a concussion either don't believe they had a concussion or ignore the signs because there was no loss of consciousness.
Some concussion signs and symptoms appear immediately while others may take a day or even a lifetime to surface. Seek medical attention immediately if you suspect a concussion, especially when symptoms worsen over a short amount of time.

At ProNeuro Health, our multifaceted care will fully assess, manage, and properly support concussion related injury resulting in fewer symptoms while decreasing long-term effects. We provide help that goes far beyond simply rest. We use a combination of physical therapies, brain-based protocols and nutritional supplements* to reestablish brain chemistry to address symptoms and to support the brain. Our process also increases internal protection before a concussion takes place to minimize the damage of a concussive event.

We recommend resting as much as possible after a concussion as well as temporarily avoiding physical and cognitive activities. Decrease activities including sports or any activity that raises heart rate. Also, decrease activities that require heavy concentration or attention like working on a computer or playing video games. However, we will provide much more than rest for concussion recovery.
You are worth more than minimal care. We can significantly reduce symptoms of concussions and restore brain function.
