This is part of a series of posts about holistic treatment of concussions and mild Traumatic Brain Injuries. Below are some of the most common post-concussion symptoms, and our recommended therapies for each. Holistic therapies can work in conjunction with mainstream medical treatments such as medication, PT, OT, rehabilitation, and counseling. There is no one treatment that is right for everyone – in our clinic, sometimes we treat patients with only one modality, and sometimes patients see multiple practitioners for multiple kinds of therapies, depending on their individual needs and wants.
