HEALTHY LIVING: BRAIN HEALTH:
Concussion, Post Concussion Syndrome, and Neck Injury
with: Dr. Scott Bender D.C., B.C.A.O.

If you or your child has been in an accident, or sustained a Concussion, you will want to join this presentation!

A Concussion, also known as a Mild Traumatic Brain Injury (mTBI) is a very common incident in the United States accounting for 80% of all traumatic brain injuries per year. Over 3.8 million injuries per year occur from sports injury alone. Other leading causes of TBI include car accidents, falls, and assault.

The vast majority of individuals with a single concussion recover within days to weeks, however some individuals develop long term problems collectively known as Post-Concussion Syndrome. Recent evidence shows that recovery is prolonged in the adolescent population.

Join us in the Schine Meeting Room as Dr. Bender founder and director of Connecticut Spine & Health Center, the first Atlas Orthogonal Healthcare Center in the state of Connecticut, presents current research in the diagnosis and the successful treatment of Cranio-Cervical injuries which contribute to Post-concussion Syndrome. Symptoms include: Headaches, Brain Fog, Sleep Disruption, and Dizziness. Strategies to help heal from these symptoms will be presented.
