Recover From Concussions and Brain Injuries with Low-Level Laser Therapy in Brunswick, OH
Our Alternative, Pain-Free Cold Laser Treatment is Safe for All Ages
A concussion is a traumatic brain injury that alters the way the brain functions. Although concussions usually are caused by trauma to the head, they can also occur when the head and/or upper body are violently or forcefully shaken.
Few wounds are more devastating than a concussion. Traumatic Brain Injury can severely impact your health in ways that aren't always immediately apparent, yet the number and efficacy of current treatment options are limited.
A concussion is a serious concern for professional and amateur athletes alike. However, concussions are not limited to just athletes. People can suffer concussions as a result of a motor vehicle accident, pedestrian or bicycle accident, workplace accident, physical altercation, a fall, combat, physical abuse, self-injury, etc.
Currently, the recommended treatment for a diagnosed concussion is usually weeks (even months) of physical and cognitive rest until the post-concussion symptoms subside. While recovering from a concussion a person may suffer from one or more symptoms such as headaches, drowsiness, vomiting, confused or irritable behavior, seizures, weakness, numbness, slurred speech and other cognitive issues.
Here is Where We Can Help!
Our low-level light therapies utilize both low-level lasers (cold lasers) and light-emitting diodes (LEDs) in a delivered treatment that is non-invasive, painless, drug-free, safe and highly effective.
LLLT can be used to help the brain heal quicker and in a less debilitating manner than the traditional method of treatment. LLLT improves overall brain function following a concussion by reducing inflammation and improving cell function and blood flow.
