Your brain is a very soft organ of about the consistency of tofu. This delicate piece of tissue is housed in a hard skull to protect it from injury, and most of the time, for most people in the world, this protection serves them well for life.
But there are over two million new brain injuries reported every year—and those are just the ones we know about. Many brain injuries, the ones in which the person does not lose consciousness, are never noticed, never reported, and therefore never treated. Even psychiatrists, who treat people for brain-related issues, are often unaware of brain injuries that may affect cognitive function, which may undermine the treatment they prescribe.
How Amen Clinics Can Help
Documenting brain injuries—including those in which the person stayed conscious—is essential to understanding a person's brain health. Even minor brain injuries can have negative consequences for years to come. At Amen Clinics, we understand the impact brain injuries can have on a person's life, and we conduct a full personal history before beginning any brain scans or treatment program.
