CLICK ANY PART OF THE BRAIN TO LEARN MORE
Suffering from post-concussion syndrome or symptoms (PCS), is far too common. PCS is when concussion symptoms continue for months or years after an initial concussion or brain injury. Because of the complexity of treating PCS, most patients are put through minimally effective treatments by their doctors. After years of "trial and error" treatments, patients often lose hope for significant recovery.
Because the brain directs the body, an individual's symptoms could easily be attributed to something other than their concussion or mild Traumatic Brain Injury (mTBI). As reported by our patients, most of their doctors seemed to treat everything, other than the root cause - their brain.
PCS can impact all areas of life, including quality of life. We organize symptoms into four different categories, Emotional, Physical, Cognitive, and Sleep. Emotional symptoms can include depression and anxiety, and can easily be confused with other mental health conditions. Physical symptoms can include headaches, vision, light or noise sensitivity. Cognitive symptoms can include memory problems, brain fog, finding the right words, and difficulty focusing. Sleep can be impacted by both getting too much or too little and disrupting the quality of sleep.
At Cognitive FX, we know that treating and recovering from PCS is possible with the right understanding and knowledge of the brain and its ability to heal.
Enhanced Performance in Cognition (EPIC) Treatment is our week-long program designed to effectively treat post-concussion syndrome and symptoms. Based on your fNCI brain scan, we'll prescribe a custom treatment program that will both address your symptoms and work to heal your brain.
EPIC Treatment starts with a fNCI brain scan so our doctors can accurately diagnose and prescribe treatments for each patient's individualized recovery program. Our focus on your actual brain makes our treatments effective and unique.
Typically, each patient has a full day of treatment sessions taking place between 8 am and 6 pm. Patients receive an average of 26 hours of therapy throughout the week from a multidisciplinary team of distinguished therapists and trainers.
Both the amount of therapy and the targeted nature of therapy from the fNCI brain scan insights set Cognitive FX apart as the most concentrated and effective post-concussion recovery option.
Every patient receives treatment unique to their injury and symptoms, empowering them to truly improve and to restore their quality of life over time. While the tasks and exercises may be challenging, we are here to guide you throughout your PCS recovery.
During your treatment you will be in back-to-back appointments, leaving no time to participate in other activities while at the clinic. Due to the intensive nature of EPIC Treatment, it is highly recommended that you do not participate in either work or school for your week of treatment.
Every individual circumstance and the medications each patient takes are different. During your consultation, we will address your needs individually and give you our specific recommendation. Do not get off your medications without working with your prescribing doctor.
Every individual patient is different when it comes to their experience during EPIC Treatment. However, it is common for patients to experience ups and downs with various symptoms throughout the week. Our therapists and trainers are very good at helping you through any increase in symptoms. Typically, our patients leave feeling better than when they started. Occasionally, it can take a few weeks for patients to feel the differences their brain has made during treatment. When we follow-up a few weeks after treatment, once patients are established in their daily lives, they report feeling much better.
We do not recommend driving yourself to and from treatment. EPIC Treatment can be exhausting and can impact your ability to drive safely. If you are staying at the hotel we work with, they provide a shuttle service.
It is helpful to have someone with you when we review your fNCI results in your report of findings. This typically happens on your first and last day. The rest of the treatment is very focused on the patient and we do not allow others to be in the room with their loved one. It can be helpful for you to have support throughout the week in which case we have a waiting room for anyone who comes with you.
Cognitive FX works closely with a local hotel to give you special rates, along with shuttle services to and from treatment. They will also go grocery shopping for you, take you other places close by, and the hotel rooms have a kitchenette so you can cook. In your consultation, we will give you more information on how to book with them.
If coming from outside of Utah, we suggest you arrive one to two days before treatment. If you are coming from another country we encourage you to come two to three days before in order to adjust to the time zone difference. We will send your schedule to you a week or two before treatment. Please be sure to check your email including your spam folder for this schedule.
On your first day of treatment, please arrive fifteen minutes early.
Typically, if your concussion symptoms have lasted for more than 30 days we encourage you to schedule a consultation. During this consultation, we will give you specific dates we have availabilities for treatment. Based on our research, we can successfully treat injuries that are anywhere from 1 month to 60 years old.
Depending on your specific needs and the choices you make during your consult prices can range from $8900 - $13315.
You do not need a referral to get Treatment. We do however need you to complete our new patient paperwork and to schedule a consultation here.
