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!
