Lack of Manual Treatment for Concussion Found all over the World.
I had the opportunity to treat a dentist from Amsterdam. First, introduced by a friend who had scheduled an appointment, she was present at his appointment. We started chatting and within 5 minutes I asked her friend if she could have his treatment felt she was at the point of possible permanent impairment. Her brain was stressed and inflamed.
Her concussion occurred during a bike accident, she can not remember what happened but feels she was hit by a car. She was unconscious and taken to the hospital. They recommended rest, time off work, the standard protocol. It had been three months, and she was not getting better.
I asked her if she had ADHD, she confirmed my suspicions. Individuals with already compromised or biochemically altered brains are the 20 percent that does not recover with regular rest and time off after head injury.
She was struggling, going back to work part-time was overwhelming, she had lost all strategies to focus, it took longer to do her work and she was a perfectionist, this caused her even more distress.
How did I know so much about concussion, she asked? No one has been able to explain it or understand what she is experiencing. I shared I had had several concussions myself, and that was the inspiration for the creation of my treatment protocol. Experience is the best teacher. All the medical professional I have seen, only the ones with ADHD, can understand how difficult it is to function and recover from concussion., no one else listens as you look normal. The lady was higher functioning mentally, to begin with, she excelled at her practice and at school, the test does not apply to people like this, as they test normal but it’s not their normal.
Part of the email she wrote me when she arrived home.
Thank you for your time and consultation/treatment. Saturday after I felt quite good, but as a result did too much activity, and Sunday was a down day. ( I have to warn people not to overdo it, as they are not healed but feel so much better)
