While no medicine has been shown to effectively speed the recovery from concussive brain injury, some new and
non-traditional therapies have been shown to help relieve the symptoms of post-concussion syndrome, as well as the value of strict cognitive and physical rest.
Until recently, says Edward Feldman, DC, RCST, treatment options for
post-concussion syndrome were fairly limited, but new therapies offer hope to some patients for recovery from traumatic brain injury.
While concussion symptoms usually clear within a week to ten days, in some cases, an athlete's physical, cognitive, emotional, and/or behavioral symptoms persist, a condition known as post-concussion syndrome (PCS).
