Concussion Revisited: 16 years post-concussion syndrome resolved in 1.5 hours
Ziyi Zhu, a 22- year-old Chinese boy, had suffered post-concussion symptoms since he was 6 years-old when he was knocked unconscious from a fall. Headaches, mental fog, head feeling heavy, pressure in the back of the head, neck pain, and feeling of fatigue plagued Ziyi for the past 16 years.
The patient stated that he had seen 100 doctors in combination for treatment and/or consultation. Both traditional and Chinese medicine were unable to solve his problems. Ziyi found my website and found his symptoms similar to those presented in case study #64 (Ten years neck and lower back pain due to faulty orthodontics). After a number of e-mail correspondence, Ziyi decided to fly in from China for evaluation and treatment. The original concussion created cranial distortions that were overlaid by additional distortions resulting from orthodontic treatment that exacerbated his original symptoms.
A comprehensive cranial examination was performed on June 29, 2017. Clinically Ziyi presented with a full reversed motion of the base of his skull overlaid with other individual cranial bone distortions. He was then treated with gentle cranial manipulation and scalar energy technology. In an hour and a half, Ziyi’s symptoms of mental fog, heavy head, neck pain, pressure in the back of his head, and feeling of fatigue totally resolved. He stated that he experienced a wonderful sense of calm following treatment.
For too long post-concussion patients have suffered needlessly because the healthcare industry is not aware of cranial manipulation technology. Re-establishing balance of the cranial motion helps restore normal brain function. This aspect is another major piece of the concussion puzzle that still eludes physicians.
