Imbalance and Disequilibrium – 532

Did you know your concussion may just be an imbalance…

Dr. Mark Knoblauch shares some personal and professional experience in dealing with / treating these concussion like symptoms.

So it is not a concussion?

Here is the scenario:

  • Athlete hit in the head,
  • Has balance problems
  • No trouble with memory
  • Head only hurts at the spot of impact
