The hottest topic in sports today is traumatic brain injuries or concussions. Blows to the head, big or small, can cause problems in life. Head trauma has been linked to ADD, depression, insomnia, chronic pain and even Alzheimer’s disease. At Brain & Chronic Conditions Center, our goal is to evaluate and manage the traumas to your brain and nervous system.
Our physical brain is an electrical-chemical system, and we can now measure the electrical output of the brain through QEEG/ brain mapping just like we can map the electrical output of the heart with an ECG.
Studies have shown head traumas, big or small, can lead to electrical changes in the brain. These electrical changes have been linked to many neurological based problems.
If you know, or suspect, you have suffered a concussion or would like to know the status of your brain health, call today to schedule a brain map. This 20 minutes painless procedure can tell us how your brain is functioning.
Head Trauma Facts:
- Approximately 2 million people in the USA per year have a head injury. 25% of those people (approximately 500,000) lose consciousness and then are 10 times more likely to develop Alzheimer’s Disease.
- 66% of head traumas occur in people under the age of 30.
- The research by Dr Budzynski found “QEEG (brain mapping) is a reliable objective and inexpensive method to evaluate the effects of rapid acceleration/deceleration injuries to the brain.”
- A concussion happens in the US every minute of every day.
- 75% of all people in their life will have a mild concussion, and thus develop severe neuro-electrochemical loss. – Dr. Eric Braveman

Think You Might Have Suffered A Concussion?
While almost everyone enjoys sports and the life lessons they can teach, it’s important to stay informed about head trauma and some of the ways getting hit in the head can result in some serious problems. Head trauma is nothing to take lightly. With all the sports that young people play today, many involve physical contact that can be rather intense.
When our kids bump heads, it can be confusing as to whether or not the effects that we see as parents are actually signs of a concussion or not. At the Brain and Chronic Conditions Center, we offer an easy way to determine how well the brain is functioning, but we feel it’s important to know what to look for if you or your loved one thinks they might be suffering from the effects of a concussion.
According to the Mayo Clinic, concussion symptoms can include:
- Persistent Headaches
- Memory issues
- Confusion that lasts beyond the head trauma
- Losing events that occurred at the time of the trauma
- Feelings of dizziness
- Nausea and/or Vomiting
- Ringing in the ears
- Concentration issues
- Sensitivity to light or sounds
- Problems with sleep
- Changes in the sense of taste or smell
These symptoms can appear as quickly as right after the head trauma or be delayed by hours or even days. Some concussion symptoms can be more subtle and not necessarily apparent to those around the individual.
