Concussion Treatment via C.A.R.E.N

With sports being a huge part of many people’s lives all over the world, there has been a clear increase in sports related injuries. In fact, one of the most common injuries seen around the board is a concussion. This injury in particular is a traumatic brain injury that is caused when there is some kind of force trauma to prevent a concussion.

Concussions definitely occur more in athletes that participate in contact sports like football, soccer and rugby, but this injury can happen to experience concussions as well. Kids are always falling down, whether they are playing in the local park or just walking around the house.

In order toms.

If a person ends up with a concussion more than one time, they could suffer from other neurological disorders, which have similar conditions to take part in sports again.

A lot of times when patients have gone through a concussion, they end up also suffering from post concussion syndrome, or “shell shock” as it is also known as. These sympto 80% of these cases, though, the patient first experienced a mild concussion.

Unfortunately, it is very common for symptoms of concussion do go away on its own if the proper treatment is in place.

We here at NY Dynamic Neuromuscular Rehabilitation offer the very best treatment plans for anyone who has suffered from a concussion. For starters, with those that have experienced a severe case of post-concussion syndrome, we will employ behavioral therapy, such as stress reduction. That is because by simply eliminating stressful situations out of the patient’s life can reduce the risks brought upon by a concussion or post-concussion syndrome. While treatment is always important, it is especially vital for those that have encountered severe trauma. Plus, this treatment should be put intoms of concussion.

Intracranial injuries are definitely becoming a growing concern for everyone alike, not just sport coaches and doctoday.

Today, there are not that many concussion treatment options available. However, as mentioned, there is Virtual Reality(VR) and that is one that has been proven to the brain.

One of the most common, and effective, virtual reality models is the C.A.R.E.N, also known as the Computer Assisted Rehabilitation Environment. It works by having a patient stand on a platform that features 6 degrees of freedom. Then, that individual is immersed intor is watching these actions transpire, he will record and transcribe what’s happening, so that he can properly treat the patient on an individual level.

Again, when an individual is subject top shape again.


In this instance, an athlete was originally diagnosed with minor quadriceps muscle strain and was treated for four weeks, with unsatisfactory results. When he came to our clinic, the muscle was not healing, and the patients’ muscle tissue had already begun to atrophy.

Upon examination using MSUS, we discovered that he had a full muscle thickness tear that had been overlooked by his previous provider. To mitigate damage and promote healing, surgery should have been performed immediately after the injury occurred. Because of misdiagnosis and inappropriate treatment, the patient now has permanent damage that cannot be corrected.

The most important advantage of Ultrasound over MRI imaging is its ability to zero in on the symptomatic region and obtain imaging, with active participation and feedback from the patient. Using dynamic MSUS, we can see what happens when patients contract their muscles, something that cannot be done with MRI. From a diagnostic perspective, this interaction is invaluable.
