In one week, the average improvement for all symptom categories is over 50%. The emotional category improves the most at nearly 70%. This information is based off of our averages for patients self-reporting PCSS.
People of all ages have the same ability to recover. We see little variation between age groups, although the older population has a slightly lower improvement rate. All ages improve at least 70% on average with EPIC Treatment.
Patients experience significant improvement in symptoms regardless of the number of concussions they had. The number of concussions does not predict improvement. Although symptoms are often worse with multiple concussions, it does not affect the ability to recover.
Regardless of how long it has been since the injury, we see comparable improvement in both SIS and PCSS measures. However, patients with a long-term injury have more symptom improvement than more recent injuries. We have treated patients as soon as three weeks after injury, but we have also treated patients who were injured for more than 65 years. It is never too late to get treatment!
Patients who suffer from anxiety, and depression, or other mental health symptoms show no difference in SIS and PCSS improvement compared to those without any mental health conditions. In fact, with EPIC Treatment, the emotional symptoms people experience from an injury improve 69% in one week.
It does not matter whether the injury is caused by sports, a car accident, a fall, or anything else. The rate of improvement is the same for all injury types. Other types of injuries include domestic violence, stroke, loss of oxygen, and other trauma to the brain.
Recent studies have noted that women, on average, are more prone to receive a concussion and that they take longer to recover. Research on this topic is new, and no one has a current explanation for those findings. However, in our research, we do not measure any significant difference between male and female recovery; they both improve a similar amount in their SIS and PCSS scores. Our focus is to treat each patient individually, regardless of gender.
98% of our patients see some improvement during the week of treatment when looking at both SIS and PCSS scores. In fact, we have only ever treated one person who did not improve on their brain scan or fNCI, but their injury was not related to a concussion, it was another neurological disorder. If you are unsure if we can help you we encourage you to schedule a complimentary consultation.
