Most people understand that cooking involves using specific ingredients in the right amounts and at the right times, to create a tasty dish. However, when it comes to rehabilitating the brain after an injury, many people (even doctors) sometimes don't know that the same principle applies. Often, patients are given one type of therapy (such as physical therapy for neck pain), with standard protocols (like 60-minute sessions, twice a week), just because it worked for someone else. But treating a concussion is more than just treating symptoms. In our experience, the most successful treatment plans include a variety of therapies, consider the impact of each intervention, establish an order in which they should be administered, and determine the optimal intensity of the program.
