Phoenix in 2017

Like everyone else on the planet we here at Phoenix are excited for 2017.  2016 was a good and interesting year laying the foundation for our new company.  We are hopeful to establish funding, develop, and launch our app in 2017!

The biggest issues in concussions right now are 1) people don’t take them seriously enough and 2) people don’t know what to do once they are concussed.  Right now avoiding concussions seems like the best, but least likely option.  You can’t live in a bubble and you can’t avoid accidents, that’s why they are called accidents!  Now, this does not mean you shouldn’t avoid high risk behaviors!

Phoenix is here to help with both of the big concussion issues.  We want people to understand that yes, some concussions are better in 14 days, but so many people suffer long term from just a “little bump or blow”.  If you are one of these people, you are not alone!  And, you are in luck!

There are so many advanced treatment options out there now for concussions.  Please explore our Advanced Treatment section to learn more about the value of vision therapy and vestibular therapy as well as many other options to address your needs.  It is estimated the 50% of people may suffer from long term oculomotor (eye) problems after a concussion which will cause eye strain/pain when reading, using the computer, or filling out paperwork.  These difficulties can cause trouble at work and at school.  If you have noticed that work or school is harder now than it was before your injury (even if your injury was years ago!!) then please seek out an FCOVD optometrist for more information.

If you are newly concussed, you aren’t alone!  There were approximately 5 million concussions in 2015.  Please explore our Early Recommendations section of the site to learn about the ways to safely return to work, school, life and THEN sport!

We will get better at blogging as we grow just as a Phoenix becomes more bright and brilliant as it ages.  Our goals include: providing good patient-friendly content and updating you on our progress in the development of our app.  We will try to have guest bloggers to provide insight from the patient’s point of view as often as possible!

Thank you and Happy 2017!

    Howdy! This blog post couldn’t be written any better!
    Looking through this article reminds me of my previous roommate!

    He continually kept preaching about this. I will forward
    this post to him. Fairly certain he’s going to have a very good read.
    Many thanks for sharing!

    Hi are using WordPress for your site platform? I’m new to the blog world but I’m trying to get started and create my
    own. Do you require any coding expertise to make your own blog?
    Any help would be really appreciated!

      I did wordpress through godaddy but it was really easy! It took me a while to get used to it at first but there are tutorials in their ebuilder and I googled the rest! Let me know if you need any help. Best of luck!

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was wondering what all is needed to get set up?
    I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?

    I’m not very web smart so I’m not 100% sure. Any recommendations or advice would
    be greatly appreciated. Kudos

      Hello, it was actually pretty easy. It was included with the website I purchased through godaddy. You could also sign up through wordpress directly. I believe they will walk you right through how to do it. You can also google “free blog hosting” and there will be recommended sites to sign up with. Because it was included in my website, I didn’t have to do very much to start mine except write a post. There will be plenty of step by step guides if you google “how to start a blog” and “best companies to use for a blog”. Good luck and let me know if you have anymore questions! I’m not web smart at all and I could do it so so can you!

    Howdy! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this website?
    I’m getting sick and tired of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m
    looking at alternatives for another platform.
    I would be awesome if you could point me in the
    direction of a good platform.

    Thank you for the feedback! Keep coming back for new content. I used the same godaddy theme for the website and the blog. I paid for the site – wordpress hosted by godaddy. The blog was included. Im very new to blogging so the encouragement is wonderful.
    I write the content myself but pull in sources where necessary.
    Best wishes

      I am going to have to shut down the comments for this specific blog now due to spammers but check back to my other blogs as well.
