Concussions and TBI

LENS has proven very successful in helping with mild to severe concussion-type injuries

LENS Therapy gives the brain the tools to move past traumatic events – without having to talk about them, explore them, or relive them

LENS Therapy works at a deep subconscious level, breaking the cycle of concussion and post-traumatic symptoms.

With LENS we can help the brain self-regulate and operate as efficiently as the brain can be.

Concussions

According to The American Association of Neurological Surgeons (AANS) a concussion is described as:

“A clinical syndrome characterized by immediate and transient alteration in brain function, including alteration of mental status and level of consciousness, resulting from mechanical force or trauma.”

Jenna suffered from concussion, panic attacks, and anger problems. LENS Therapy turned her life around.

So how can you recognize if someone has suffered a concussion?

The Centre for Disease Control provides the following checklists.

Symptoms observed:

  • Can’t recall events prior to or after a hit or fall
  • Appears dazed or stunned
  • Forgets an instruction, is confused about an assignment or position, or is unsure of the game, score, or opponent
  • Moves clumsily
  • Answers questions slowly
  • Loses consciousness (even briefly)
  • Shows mood, behavior, or personality changes

Concussion symptoms reported:

  • Headache or “pressure” in head.
  • Nausea or vomiting.
  • Balance problems or dizziness, or double or blurry vision.
  • Bothered by light or noise.
  • Feeling sluggish, hazy, foggy, or groggy.
  • Confusion, or concentration or memory problems.
  • Just not “feeling right,” or “feeling down”.

Signs and symptoms generally show up soon after the injury, however, you may not know how serious the injury is at first. Some symptoms may not show up for hours or days.

For example, in the first few minutes your child or teen might be a little confused or a bit dazed, but an hour later your child might not be able to remember how he or she got hurt.

You should continue to check for signs of concussion right after the injury and a few days after the injury. If your child or teen’s concussion signs or symptoms get worse, you should take him or her to the emergency department right away.

LENS Therapy works at a deep subconscious level, breaking the cycle of concussion and post-traumatic symptoms. With LENS we can help the brain self-regulate and operate as efficiently as the brain can be.

TBI

TBI, or Traumatic Brain Injury, is trauma to the brain from a physical or mechanical force.

TBI is broadly classed in two categories. The most commonly recognized is hyper vigilance; the less widely known is freeze and dissociation.

Trauma can often manifest as a combination of the two, as the nervous system shifts between one and the other.

Hyper Vigilance and Trauma

A heightened state of awareness is part of the fight / flight response, resulting in a state of chronic hyper-vigilance. This state is akin to being locked into permanent ‘battle stations’; brain resources on constant alert, causing inappropriate or even aggressive reactions in everyday situations.

Freeze and Dissociation

When a threat is utterly overwhelming and too much for the fight / flight system to cope with, the brain goes into a “Freeze” state; a numbing or collapse response. This sort of trauma is experienced as a general shutdown, lack of vitality, emotional separation and detachment.

My son has had 2 TBIs

“He felt and saw improvement on charts in just 3 visits.They went out of their way to accommodate his schedule as he lives out of the country and needed therapy in a brief time due to travel. They explained everything, made him comfortable and helped his brain to trigger and fire where previous it did not allow.”
