We Take the Guesswork Out of Psychiatry

Have you ever hit your head and momentarily seen stars, felt dazed, or blacked out? Maybe you had a car accident, fell off your bike, crunched helmets in a football game, or got knocked unconscious by a violent blast in combat. You aren’t alone.

Over 2 million new head injuries occur in the U.S. every year, and the number of concussions is on the rise. From 2010-2015, concussion diagnoses jumped 43% among the general population and 71% among young people ages 10-19. And many more people experience concussions that go undiagnosed.

What most people don’t realize is that concussions—even

mild ones where you don’t pass out—can cause lasting consequences. And because it can take weeks or months for some issues to develop, you may not make the connection that they are related to a past head injury.

Surprising Symptoms of Concussions

Many people are aware of the immediate symptoms of concussion, such as headache, dizziness, and nausea. But very few people realize that concussions are also a major cause of psychiatric symptoms. For example, did you know that head injuries increase your risk for:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • ADHD
  • Psychosis
  • PTSD
  • Dementia
  • Borderline Personality Disorder
  • Aggression
  • Suicide

When symptoms of any of these conditions start to impact your life — or if treatment isn’t working — that’s when you need to seek another solution.

Unfortunately, many doctors simply treat these symptoms as psychiatric disorders. They don’t ask about previous concussions and don’t actually look at the brain with imaging, so they don’t understand the root cause of your symptoms. And traditional psychiatric treatment alone is not going to heal your brain.

Getting the Right Treatment Depends on the Right Diagnosis

At Amen Clinics, we use leading-edge brain imaging technology that helps us see the effects of concussions — even mild ones that occurred decades earlier — in the brain. About 40% of our patients have experienced head injuries, but many of them don’t remember suffering a concussion or they think it was too insignificant to mention. That all changes when they look at their brain scans and can clearly see the effects of concussions.

With the world’s largest database of functional brain scans — 150,000 and growing — from patients from all 50 states and 120 countries, our physicians are able to more accurately diagnose concussions and related conditions than any other healthcare professionals.

Get a Personalized Treatment Plan for Concussion with Proven Results

Since 1989, Amen Clinics has helped thousands of people overcome the lasting effects of concussions with targeted solutions that are proven to produce higher than average success rates.

We believe in taking a comprehensive brain-body approach to treatment that involves the least toxic, most effective strategies. To heal the brain after a concussion, treatment includes utilizing natural supplements, nutrition, exercise, hyperbaric oxygen therapy, neurofeedback, helpful forms of psychotherapy, and medication (when necessary)—all personalized for your specific needs.
