I’ve been struggling with post-concussive syndrome for the past year. This book was so comprehensive and informative about all the different treatments that are at your disposal to see significant improvement, regardless of how long ago your brain injury was. It provides extensive instruction on what to do for acute brain injuries that will significantly impact healing in a positive way, as well as ways to treat people who have been dealing with chronic brain injury for years, even decades. Dr. Chapek disproves the common belief that there comes a point in TBI when “no more can be done”, and provides evidence for treatments that really are effective and decreasing or eradicating chronic symptoms.
I would recommend this book for anyone who has suffered concussions, traumatic brain injury, or even people who have long suffered from behavioral and mental health conditions. The brain has an incredible ability to heal itself, and this book provides many tangible options on how to achieve that healing.
