20 yo college student/club volleyball coach presented to the clinic last week with a symptom score in the upper 20s, with the history of 7 concussions in her last 2 years of high school then went a year and half without 1. A month ago was hit in the face with a volleyball during a practice and got another concussion. Pt family member expressed observed symptoms of migraines and “spacing out” during conversations. The Pt was seen in the clinic 4x this week and received treatments including but not limited to: syntonics (AlphaOmega/MuUpsilon), PEMF mat with Huso sound waves, cervical and facial dry needling, EHC activities, saccadic exercises, and neuro entrainment/meditative therapy with intermittent compression.
After roughly 4 years of struggling with symptoms from multiple concussions and receiving no formal treatment, the Pt left her appointment today with a symptom score of 1 (headache) and stated that she is feeling better than she has in a few years.
The plan is to continue to treat her concussion and graduate to a return to play protocol so she can continue to exercise and coach volleyball without any worries of symptom provocation.
