Peak Performance Physical Therapy's Jill Olson and Becky Berland represented the Dylan Steigers Concussion Project (DSCP) at the 9th Annual Community Cup Hockey Benefit put on by the Foundation for Community Health (FCH). This year's cup mission was geared towards the prevention, detection, and rehabilitation of brain injury and benefited the DSCP, the Brain Injury Alliance of Montana, and Glacier Ice Rink's adaptive skating program. Thank you, FCH, for allowing us to participate and for all who helped make this year's event a success! • • •   #braininjury     #braininjuryawareness     #tbi     #concussion     #concussionrecovery     #concussionawareness     #peakperformance     #missoula     #missoulaphysicaltherapy

  @philadelphiaeagles   head coach Doug Pederson was not pleased with linebacker Kamu Grugier-Hill’s decision to lie to trainers about his concussion two weeks ago. He stresses to players the importance of self-reporting concussions and to   #TeamUpSpeakUp   if they see a teammate with a concussion.

There are many misconceptions with migraine related to concussion. The main one being that people acquire migraine after head trauma, which doesn’t really happen. The confusion comes from the ICHD-3 diagnostic criteria for migraine. This criteria is such that someone that has post-traumatic headache or even cervicogenic headache can meet the criteria for the diagnosis of migraine symptomatically, while not having the genetic predisposition for it. Meaning they have migraine based on the best way we have to diagnose it, but if you were to look at fMRI’s, autonomic testing, or genetic testing, you wouldn’t see the indicators for migraine. After someone has a concussion, there are 3 outcomes I commonly see: 1. The patient previously suffered from migraine, but after the concussion, migraine became more frequent. 2. The patient did not previously suffer with migraine, but was diagnosed with migraine after the accident since it fits the diagnostic criteria. This situation almost always leads us to find it was post-concussion/traumatic headache without actual migraine. 3. The patient had a genetic predisposition to migraine, but it hadn’t yet manifested. The concussion was enough of a trauma to allow the phenotypic expression of their migraine predisposition. Now if treatment was the same for these conditions, this distinction wouldn’t matter, but they are not. It’s common to hear that a patient had no history of migraine until after a car accident, at which point it took a year or so to eventually just get the label of migraine. Then they’ll report that they tried multiple triptans or other abortive migraine medications and have no success. You may also hear that most of the pain is in the back of the neck without any radiation to the front of the head. These are all indicators that you may not have true migraine. While none of these are diagnostic by themselves, any one of them may make you think twice about what type of headache you’re actually dealing with. If it is post-traumatic or post-concussive, identifying which areas of the brain have been impacted and how to rehabilitate them is essential for proper recovery. - Dr. Adam Harcourt DC, DACNB, FACFN, FABVR

A friend recently asked me to describe how I have changed since the accident. She didn’t mean how has my life changed in general, but what are the little things that she can pay attention for to know when my symptoms first start to flare. You see she wants to keep my type A personality in check and make me stop before I go too far. Here are some of the things I came up with (in no specific order): . 🧠 Pay attention to my eyes - when I am struggling to focus them my eye muscles will twitch. This causes me pain. 🧠 Watch the left side of my face - when the nerves are firing a lot (which is very painful) my face will become flush. 🧠 Chances are good that when I stop participating in conversations or talk less that I am no longer able to process my thoughts... this seems happens a few moments before I start to stutter. 🧠 If I’m not looking at whoever I am conversing with, I have no idea what they are saying and probably cannot focus enough to hear their words and process them. 🧠 if I’m wearing a hat and sunglasses indoors I’m having a hard time and need to block out some of my peripheral vision. 🧠 If I have on hat, sunglasses, and headphones or ear plugs... I’m all done... there is way to much stimulation around. 🧠 Watch my right arm and leg. As my symptoms kick in more and more I will have pain and weakness in my right arm and will start to have trouble walking because my right leg will start acting up.   #braininjury     #braininjuryawareness     #braininjuryrecovery     #braininjurysupport     #braininjurysurvivor     #concussion     #concussionawareness     #concussiongirl     #concussions     #concussionrecovery     #concussionmanagement     #concussionsymptoms     #headinjury     #invisableinjury     #pcs     #postconcussionsyndrome     #postconcussion     #tbi     #tbiawareness     #tbisurvivor     #tbiwarrior     #traumaticbraininjury     #traumaticbraininjurysurvivor     #mildtraumaticbraininjury     #occipitalneuralgia     #trimeningealneuralgia     #spoonie

Medvetande försvinner blir inringat nått fast tycker jag såfort man vill förklara vad det är eller hur det blir genast begränsat? Så stort så det är ofattbart. Ändå påverkas vi mest av det omedvetna det som vi inte själva är medvetna om läskigt ändå hur din inre kompass alltid styrs till det omedvetna att bli medvetet. Men ändå bra för det kanske är polariteten till konstant medvetande?   #medvetande     #concussionawareness     #subconscious     #subconsciousmind

Here are my wise words for today:) For years I saw a psychologist weekly, sometimes multiple times a week. People have given therapy a bad reputation... I’m glad that these days it’s more common to speak about it, but it’s still not talked about enough. ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ Getting help and going to a psychologist was one of the best things to happen to me. I originally went for cognitive behavioral therapy which was to help me cope with my headaches and the depression that came along with them. ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ I learned so much from my experience and idk where I’d be if I never got help. Nowadays I’m the happiest I’ve ever been even though my health is the worst it’s ever been. It just shows how powerful your mental health is. Don’t be afraid to seek help. Don’t be embarrassed or ashamed to talk about how you’re feeling bc it can change your life! You can’t control what happens in your life but you can control how you deal with things:) . . I want to start making YT vids about positive subjects and might talk about this some more... if you have any topics you want me to talk about lemme know!!!
