Brain Health Doctor to Talk Concussion Treatment at Brain Injury Canada

Brain Injury Canada’s First Semi Annual Conference, “Brain Injury Matters: Research, Innovation and Inspiration”, will be held April 14 – 15, 2015.

Dr. Joanny Liu will speak at this event about her Proactive Concussion Treatment Protocol. She will describe how modern neuroscience research in both neuroplasticity and neuropsychology can be applied to help people overcome their mild traumatic brain injury. Her presentation will cover key issues such as:

The Three Giant Myths About Concussion – New research reveals that these myths are holding people back from healing, stopping them from getting back on their feet faster

What the New Research in Brain Plasticity Says – Explore the existing research in neuroscience to create new concussion treatment in a clinical setting

Tips and Strategies – Apply the new research in practical terms to begin the process to rewire the brain and kickstart the healing process.

When asked about the reasons behind speaking at this event, Dr. Joanny Liu, Chief Optimism Creator at Harmoni Health, said:

“A concussion can happen to anyone. It can also be treated and reversed successfully. Since it’s the most common of brain injuries this is especially important. So many go unreported for fear of being taken out of activities for far too long. And the newest research definitely supports getting people back into their normal lives sooner rather than later. Total rest has forced too many people to take too long to heal or they have relapses or they’re told that they’re at risk for future concussions. It’s time to empower sufferers. Anyone with a concussion can heal when they become proactive instead of being passive. It’s time to think and act outside-of-the-box. This follows a new trend in medicine that is just beginning to understand how psychological well being heavily influences physical well being. This trend dovetails quite nicely with Ancient Chinese Sports Medicine and Sports Psychology. We can use the brain to heal the brain. In fact, the entire healing process requires a major and committed pattern interrupt. I’d also add that the pattern interrupt must also occur in those health practitioners helping people to recover. We’ve got to think and do things differently too instead of holding on to outdated concepts.”
