Have you been diagnosed with a concussion or brain injury or are wondering if it may be why you feel the way you do? We are a brain injury clinic in Meridian Idaho and work with many of you who feel off and not like yourself but are not sure why and are hoping to find some answers. We have made it our mission to help individuals like you to feel understood, get answers, and get your life back.

Does This Sound Like You?

  • Waking up with barely enough energy to start the day and completely fatigued by noon despite another 5 hours of work and it is only Monday?
  • Battling chronic neck pain and headaches that have you trying medications, Chiropractic, Physical Therapy, and Acupuncture hoping to find some sort of relief, but it never lasts?
  • Trying to hold conversations with friends but you struggle to find the word you are looking for as your brain seems to always be glitching on you?
  • Hanging out with family, but feel you are merely there as you are unable to track conversations and really understand what they are saying?
  • Feel that you have a new found ADD/ADHD that had never occurred during your elementary years or is worse now?
  • Struggling to find the motivation to get up in the morning and anytime you go out you feel everything is going too fast leading to anxiety?

If you answered yes to any of these, then you are like many of my patients who suffered for months and years before finding answers. You have likely been through a process like this.

When you see your primary provider they start you on medications to help with headaches, depression, and concentration, but unfortunately you don’t get noticeable results and are referred to a neurologist. The neurologist looks at you and tells you everything is due to your depression because your imaging is normal and you need to see a psychiatrist because it is all in your head.

They did have one thing right, it is in your head. This is the result of the brain not being as healthy as it should be. Concussion and brain injury are one reason why the brain isn’t healthy.

No, you are not crazy. Numerous research articles have come out and are suggesting that nearly 50% of individuals who suffer and are diagnosed with a concussion or brain injury are still not recovered a year down the road. When recovery hasn’t happened yet, this is called post-concussion syndrome and individuals can battle this for years. Spontaneous recovery usually doesn’t happen after 6 months, the time of watching and waiting is over.

Are you ready to understand concussions and brain injury better to be able to find the right answers and solutions to help you get your life back?

Common Causes of Concussion or Brain Injury

 

Most of you have been diagnosed with a concussion or brain injury and know that is why you feel off. For others, you never receive the proper diagnosis and are told you have whiplash, neck strain, adhd, chronic fatigue, depression, headaches, or any number of other symptoms that are common following a concussion or brain injury.

What are the most common causes of concussion or brain injury:

  • Falls Motor

There are a lot of myths surrounding concussion and brain injury which leads to you suffering longer than you should:

  • Must lose consciousness
  • Must hit your head
  • Must have nausea and vomiting
  • A normal CT or MRI means your brain is healthy and nothing happened
  • You can’t be experiencing symptoms from a concussion or brain injury after 3 months as it should be better.
  • If you are still experiencing symptoms it’s not likely due to your concussion but due to a mental health issue.

Common symptoms that can persist even years after the injury:

  • Headache/migrainesPost-Concussion syndrome symptoms

How We Help You Recover From Concussion or Brain Injury – Our Proven BMB Method

Concussion and brain injuries are the #1 thing we treat on a daily basis. Dr. Zimmerman has been helping individuals recover from these injuries for over a decade and most of these individuals had seen a minimum of 5 other providers while many other have seen over 15 before finally getting their lives back.

Our understanding of concussion and brain injury continues to increase and one thing is clear. Focusing on symptoms usually doesn’t offer much improvement. The answers come when you address the complexity of these injuries. These injuries are complex and are more than just one thing. There is no magic bullet, but there is a process that predictably works.

You may be wondering how we evaluate whether a concussion or brain injury is the cause of your symptoms and how we help you find answers. We utilize The BMB Method (Brain, Mind, & Body) that has been refined over the past 9 years. This allows us to look where others aren’t, as well as view each person as an individual by:

  • Evaluating brain function using eye movements, balance, and brain waves as imaging is routinely normal for these injuries.
  • Evaluating the mind reviewing past traumas and the subconscious programming that prevents you from success in life.
  • Identifying how the different systems in the body are functioning using symptoms and lab testing.

Imagine what life looks like when you have your brain health:

  • Wake up in the morning refreshed and excited for what is planned with your children and friends, such as going to a movie, soccer practice, or even to dinner at your favorite restaurant..
  • Have your mind gently ease into sleep without it racing
  • Brain feels clear and able to have great conversations with friends, family, and colleagues.
  • Go an entire day without even realizing you didn’t have a headache or neck pain until your spouse asks how you’re feeling.

By using The BMB Method we are able to provide answers and solutions when other programs have failed. Countless individuals are grateful that they decided to try one last time. If you are ready to try a new approach to address the underlying reason why these symptoms that are robbing you of your life then request your health strategy session today.

Wow were my eyes opened by Dr. Z. I was suffering from daily migraines, neck, back, shoulder, hip pain, vision and hearing problems, and the list goes on. Dr. Z saved my life. No joke. He is super meticulous and very passionate about his work. He is very smart and forward thinking and researches all the time. He genuinely cares about his patients. He’s an amazing and very caring provider and I highly recommend him.

“Dr. Spencer Zimmerman is phenomenal! In January I found out I have Lyme disease and along with that discovery, I found out that most traditional Doctors won’t/can’t help treat Lyme disease patients due to FDA restrictions. My only option appeared to be a Lyme specialist, which was going to cost enormous amounts of money because insurance doesn’t cover Lyme specialists. I felt hopeless. And that’s when I had the amazing fortune to come across Dr. Spencer Zimmerman. He gave me the hope I so desperately needed. He is very knowledgeable in regards to traditional medicine, but also homeopathic care as well.
