The Simkovich Cranial Treatment Philosophy
Guided by standard practices, medical professionals treat the symptoms of a traumatic brain injury (TBI) or concussion (e.g., nausea, depression, mood swings, etc.). While some people respond to these treatments, others experience little or no symptom relief, even after weeks or months. For these people, migraines, mental health problems, vision challenges, and difficulty remembering things become their new way of life, and many give up any hope of getting better.
At Simkovich Cranial Institute, we believe that standard TBI and concussion treatments are ineffective for so many patients because these traditional treatments focus on alleviating symptoms rather than addressing the head injury itself. Current standard treatments for TBI are akin to giving a person pain medication for a broken arm without resetting, casting, or otherwise addressing the broken bone. The symptom (i.e., pain) is alleviated, but the arm is unlikely to return to its normal strength and ability because the broken bone was not addressed.
Just like the physical damage done to a broken arm has to be mended prior to full recovery, we believe that the physical damage resulting from a TBI must be addressed in order for the brain to return to its normal state. At Simkovich Cranial Institute, we address this damage by treating TBIs and concussions at their source using Dr. Simkovich’s revolutionary (CMT).The Simkovich Cranial Treatment Philosophy
