When you hear people talk about concussions there isn't much talk about treatment. It's talked about as if it was an accident that just happened and by just giving it time the side effects will just go away. I bet if you researched treatment options for concussions you won't get much more than rest, some pain relievers and time. 

But why aren't we looking at the bigger picture when it comes to concussions? Are certain people more prone to them than others? If you know WHY the brain was weakened in the first place isn't it easier to heal? If you know how to trigger the right type of brain plasticity that grows and repairs brain cells there is a greater chance for faster healing. 

Join me as I interview Dr. Joanny to talk about why concussions occur and what we can do to promote long term healing after a concussion has occured: 

1. What are the biggest myths people are told about concussions?

2. What’s the most common mistakes people make when exploring treatment options?

3. Why are concussions and post concussive syndrome temporary?

And more!
