Whether you’re experiencing your first concussion or you’re an athlete whose sport puts you at higher risk for head injury, the protocol for recovering from a concussion is very important. Not only do you want to see a doctor right away after a head injury, but it’s also essential to follow the steps laid out by your trusted professional to ensure complete and total healing. There are a couple of different schools of thought when it comes to concussion recovery, but the foundation of healing a brain injury remains consistent. At McWhorter CNR, we specialize in helping patients, especially athletes prone to chronic concussions, restore brain function through innovative treatment protocols. Let’s discuss what you should do after a concussion and some of the best things you can do for healing.
GyroStim is a state-of-the-art, mutli-axis rotating chair used to provide vestibular stimulation. It spins you across multiple planes while you uses lasers to fire at targets placed throughout your field of vision. Controlled by a computer, participants can see strengths and weaknesses, reaction times, and proficiency with hand-eye coordination. While this technology slightly resembles an amusement park ride if you’re not familiar with its purpose, GyroStim therapy can be highly beneficial in the treatment of a wide variety of conditions.
