Concussion Recovery Therapy is the world’s first scientifically documented breakthrough for the treatment of TBI, brain injuries and concussions. Concussion Recovery Therapy combines outside-the-box therapeutic thinking with evidenced-based science to produce the world’s first successful brain therapy, ushering in a new era for human health and healing.
Concussion Recovery Therapy is specifically designed to dramatically reduce the physical causes of STRESS controlling TBI and PCS symptomology. Concussion Recovery Therapy has been scientifically proven to reduce CORTISOL (stress hormone) and improve cognitive functioning. The benefits of integrating Concussion Recovery Therapy into your current clinical setting are clearly visible in the imagery below.
Today, the standard status quo of care for acute concussed injury is several days of rest with minimal visual stimulation, and prescribed medications for pain, headaches, and vomiting. There are a great number of concussion clinics that “manage” concussion recovery.
To date, however, effective treatment has not been established, as there are no significant treatment options that scientifically prove PCS symptom reduction OR that prove consistent positive cognitive changes after application. Why is this?
Concussions & Stress
Many TBI and concussion patients recover within weeks, while others may never recover.
Why this discrepancy? Current research supports the findings that PCS symptomology is due to ongoing central and autonomic nervous system dysfunctions received prior to or during the concussion event. These dysfunctions are sympathetic UP-regulation, commonly called STRESS. Science is now aware that altered sympathetic and parasympathetic imbalances within the Autonomic Nervous system (ANS) is a critical factor in Post-Concussive Syndrome (PCS) recovery.
The ultimate goal of Concussion Recovery Therapy is to improve cognitive functioning and reduce PCS symptomology through STRESS reduction and ANS regulation. Sympathetic stress and cortisol (the endocrine STRESS marker), are directly linked in research to concussions, diminished brain health and poor cognitive functioning.
Concussion Recovery Therapy has been reported in literature to reduce stress, regulate the autonomic nervous system and improve HRV and PCS symptomology. (Chevalier-2016, Armstrong-2017) Concussion Recovery Therapy clearly yields superior therapeutic outcomes over current concussion treatment options.
If you still struggle with PCS or TBI recovery with your patients and want an effective therapy for your concussion management program, Concussion Recovery Therapy is the perfect adjunct to your concussion program. If you are a suffering patient, follow the science!

“Fantastic course. Cannot say enough good things about the quality of the information presented here. Great for the concussion information alone, but I can’t wait to try this out on my neurological patients ...” −Paul McCrimmon (DOMP RMT)
“MPS is such a powerful tool with the research to back up the claims. I am looking forward to using the concussion protocols on my family and my patients. I witnessed as well as received fantastic results. I feel so good!” −Eileen Salvi (PT)
“Great protocols for post concussion recovery.” −Mandy McCracken-Atkins (PTA, LMT)
“Some of my clients have benefited from the concussion treatment. Thank you and they also say thank you …” −Robert Glean (RMT, CFSS)
