Understanding Concussion: The Invisible Injury

A concussion might seem invisible, but its impact is real. It’s a type of brain injury that happens after a hit to your head or body – kind of like your brain getting shaken up inside your skull. While it doesn’t always show up in scans, it can mess with how your brain works.

Symptoms and Misdiagnoses: Concussions can be sneaky, with symptoms that look a lot like other injuries. That’s why they often go unnoticed. But recognizing them early is key to getting better fast.

Why Act Fast?: Ignoring a concussion can lead to troubles that stick around way longer than they should, sometimes for months or even years. It’s called post-concussion syndrome, and trust us, it’s not fun.

Our Approach to Concussion Care: We’ve got a team of pros who are great at spotting and treating concussions. They use the latest and greatest methods to make sure you recover quickly and safely. Our process includes:

  • Early detection and assessment.
  • Collaborating with your doctor for the best care.
  • Comprehensive treatment tailored to your needs.
  • Frequent tests to monitor your recovery.
  • A structured, safe plan for you to get back to learning, working, and playing.
  • A happy, healthy farewell once you’re all better!

Remember, when it comes to concussions, it’s better to be safe than sorry. Reach out to us and let’s take care of that head of yours!

I started seeing Alex in 2021 after being diagnosed with both Rheumatoid Disease and Bursitis in all my major joints. At the time I could not walk more then 10 meters due to the extreme pain I was experiencing from the Bursitis in my hips. My GP was pushing cortisone injections that absolutely terrified me... Alex had me walking again within only a few months and continues to treat me now. I can't thank Alex and his team enough for giving me some kind of life back. I'll always have both these diseases but knowing that i've holistic support and treatment (that isn't scary) is such a blessing.

After enjoying a life time of sports the injuries accumulate. Alex and the team at Optimum have done wonders to improve my quality of life. Regular visits has resolved the scar tissue from most of those injuries resulting in a remarkable difference to my range of movement, quality of sleep and clarity of mind. Best of all many aches and pains have disappeared. I highly recommend the team at Optimum Health and Performance.

I highly recommend seeing Alex, he's helped me so much. I had suffered chronic back pain for a year, before being recommended to Alex by my partner. After my first session, I went from getting 4-5 hours of sleep a night due to my back pain, to getting a full 8 hours. But since I've been seeing Alex at Optimum Health, my back has greatly improved. The staff are professional, and welcoming.
