Sports teach you many life lessons.
The value of hard work. Learning from your mistakes. How to work with a team. Let’s face it, with sports comes injuries. And all too often, concussions just become part of the game.
The hottest topic in sports today are head injuries or concussions. Blows to the head, big or small, can cause problems later in life. Head trauma has been linked to ADD, depression, insomnia, chronic pain and even Alzheimer’s disease.
At The Martin Clinic, our goal is to evaluate and manage the stressors to your nervous system. Our physical body is an electrical-chemical system, and we can measure the electrical output of the brain through QEEG/ brain mapping.
Studies have shown head traumas, big or small, can lead to electrical changes in the brain. These electrical changes have been linked to many neurological based problems.
If you know, or suspect, you have symptoms of a concussion or would like to know the status of your brain health, call today to schedule a brain map. This 20 minutes painless procedure can tell us how your brain is functioning.
Head Trauma Facts:
- Approximately 2 million people in the USA per year have a head injury. 25% of those people (appx 500,000) lose consciousness and then are 10 times more likely to develop Alzheimer’s Disease.
66% of head traumas occur in people under the age of 30.
- The research by Budzynski found “QEEG (brain mapping) is a reliable objective and inexpensive method to evaluate the effects of rapid acceleration/deceleration injuries to the brain.”
- A concussion happens in the US every minute of every day.
- 75% of all people in their life will have a mild concussion, and thus develop severe neuro-electrochemical loss. – Dr. Eric Braveman
