It's important to have a baseline assessment of your brain before an injury.

It’s impor­tant to have a base­line assess­ment of your brain before an injury.

We believe that every person is entitled to know the extent and location of the damage done to their own brain.

What is a Concussion?

A concus­sion is a trau­matic brain injury that affects both the compo­si­tion of the brain and the way it func­tions. Typical symp­toms include, but are not limited to: prob­lems with memory, concen­tra­tion, deci­sion making, headache, fatigue, confu­sion, mood, sleep, dizzi­ness, balance, vision, and nausea.

Many people once believed that concus­sions only resulted from extreme blows to the head and required a loss of conscious­ness. We now under­stand that this is simply not true; concus­sions can occur from light impacts to the head or even shaking, and some have no symp­toms at all.

We are able to measure and compare changes in your brain’s elec­trical activity, so having a base­line allows us see the differ­ence if you have an injury.

Every concus­sion injures your brain to some extent. Doctors used to believe that a concus­sion was a tempo­rary, short-lived injury (7–10 days) and that the brain was healed after many of the effects went away.  We now under­stand that changes to the brain can last for months or even years following a concus­sion. Everyone recovers differ­ently from concus­sion, which makes it even more impor­tant to under­stand how your concus­sion is affecting your brain.

Why get a Baseline qEEG?

The stan­dard approach for concus­sions has remained largely the same for the past two decades.  This is shocking, given the amount of recent research that has changed our under­standing of what is happening to the brain. Studies now show that qEEG is sensi­tive not only to the pres­ence or absence of a concus­sion, but also to the degree of damage in the brain.

By getting an initial qEEG baseline, we are then able to compare changes in your brain post concussion or head injury.

How can neuroAgility help?

We care about providing you with an under­standing of your brain's condition.

We care about providing you with an under­standing of your brain before and after the injury.

We are not only inter­ested in alle­vi­ating your symp­toms of concus­sion.  We care about providing you with an under­standing of your brain before and after the injury.  Most impor­tantly, we care about restoring your brain back to its peak func­tional perfor­mance (memory, concen­tra­tion, sleep, etc.), as well as repairing the engine beneath the hood (your brain).  Our highly trained staff has exten­sive expe­ri­ence. Dr. Steve Stock­dale is a national expert in qEEG data analysis and inter­pre­ta­tion. Our medical director, Dr. Earle Shugerman, has worked in qEEG for the past two decades. All of our clin­i­cians are master’s degree level. We take an inte­gra­tive team approach to devel­oping your most accu­rate base­line assess­ment.

How can I learn more about this?

We have provided addi­tional research arti­cles below that explain the use of qEEG and neurotherapy for concus­sion diag­noses and reha­bil­i­ta­tion in more detail.

If you would like to consult a clin­i­cian, or simply receive more infor­ma­tion, please contact us directly.
