NEW RESEARCH: Active Concussion Recovery

Active Concussion Recovery

For decades the standard concussion recovery protocol has been rest and do nothing until the symptoms “hopefully” go away.

Not anymore. Active concussion recovery is a hot topic these days with recent studies demonstrating faster dissipation of symptoms, decreased emotional impact, increased energy, improved balance -- which all combine for significantly faster return to sports, school, work, and life in general.
 
Click the button at right for a summary of seven recent research studies covering different aspects of active concussion recovery.

 
Since 2011 GyroStim has been at the forefront of active concussion recovery...when it was used to help NHL Superstar Sidney Crosby actively overcome his concussion.

Fast forward to 2018, many thousands of athletes and people from all walks of life have benefited from GyroStim and active recovery strategies.

Sensorimotor Training for MMA Fighters


Three skills required by mixed martial arts athletes are the ability to percieve, process, and react. Recently, undefeated amateur fighter, Grant Neal, demonstrated this by clinching a light heavyweight title in a three round unanimous judge decision. Neal's ability to read his opponent and respond with lightning speed paid off.  


Prior to his last two matches, Neal participated in SMART:  Sensorimotor, Multi-Axis, Rotational Training.  He started with very low intensity and speed -- hitting laser targets that came in and out of his field of vision while rhythmically, gently rocking forward and back and spinning at 5 revolution per minute.  He incrementally advanced to the training level he uses today:  30 revolutions per minute, for 3 minutes, full inversions with an unpredictable pattern of motion.

Neal participated in SMART two to three times each week leading up to each match.  He reports that the repetitious opportunity to practice "perceive-process-react was instrumental to his success in the octagon.
