The owner of Lehigh Valley Healing Circle has personally experienced 3 concussions, the first of which occurred when she was 3 years old. Carol’s last concussion was the worst of them all, giving her a plethora of horrible symptoms including severe anxiety, memory issues, insomnia, mood swings, and loss of taste. Carol couldn’t find relief until she attended The School of Structural Energetic Therapy, where she learned and experienced the Frontal Occipital Decompression. After just one cranial treatment, all of Carol’s post-concussion symptoms were gone for good. At this moment, Carol knew she had to spread awareness of this remarkable treatment that provides a healing flow of energy to detoxify the brain and flush the spinal fluid, removing many post-concussion symptoms.
The Frontal/Occipital Decompression is a gentle and precise osteopathic therapy, a very powerful detoxifier for the brain and body. It is proven to produce observable and measurable positive results in behavior, motor skills, coordination, and the ability to concentrate. It can reduce scar tissue and inflammation from concussions (head trauma that can cause memory problems along with a host of other symptoms and dysfunctions), reduce sinus pressure, brain fog and inner ear swelling.

Post-Concussion Syndrome (PCS) is a complex disorder which produces various symptoms such as headaches and dizziness lasting weeks or months. It is often considered mild brain injury, often occurring after a blow to the head. Loss of consciousness is not required to develop post-concussion syndrome. In fact, the risk of this syndrome does not appear to be associated with the severity of the initial injury. The use of the terms “concussion” and “post-concussion” syndrome (PCS) has increased in the lexicon of health-care practitioners and laypeople. In minor league, amateur and professional sports, we see an increased frequency in the diagnosis of concussion injury, along with detailed quantification of its accompanying signs and symptoms. PCS has arisen as the term used to describe the unresolved chronic continuation of a group of physical, emotional and cognitive symptoms. In contrast to the usual seven to ten day resolution for sports-related concussions or up to three months for non-sports-related concussions, the aforementioned symptoms may be reported for months or even years after the injury.
Estimates of the incidence of PCS range from 7% to 33% of patients diagnosed with a concussion. Finding treatment approaches to help athletes and laypeople alike has been a challenge for all medical practitioners. As clarification of the mechanisms of injury and the structures involved continues to develop, employing a manual technique capable of accessing and addressing the vascular and structural/neurological tissues of the brain has surfaced as being an appropriate treatment modality.
