How is Post Concussion Syndrome diagnosed?

Chiropractic diagnosis uses sophisticated muscle testing to determine damage to the neurological function of the brain.  Dr. Billauer is able to demonstrate exactly what physical functions have been compromised by the patient’s inability to react.  These patterns allow him to diagnose which neurological pathways are interrupted.

How Does Chiropractic Treat Post Concussion Syndrome?

Dr. Billauer’s treatment consists of resetting the circuits and pathways, like resetting a circuit breaker in your home.  Treatment through painless digital pressure, reestablishes neurological functionality leading to normalized reactionary capacity. Following correction, the patient is able to demonstrate significant improvement in previously compromised physical function.  The patient’s inability to react normally should not return, unless there is a new injury.
