New Hope for Concussions TBI & PTSD

Dr. Larry Komer and Joan Chandler Komer offer new hope to those with brain injuries. Millions of people of all ages experience concussions. Many others have a more serious event known as a traumatic brain injury. Battlefield injuries often include concussions or a TBI. These brain injuries can lead to a complex condition known as PTSD that can alter a person’s life, family and community. PTSD is a serious condition that often is difficult to treat. 73% of sufferers of PTSD also have TBI. Conventional diagnosis and treatment of these conditions often include, “I am sorry. There is nothing more we can do.” It is a prescription for despair and hopelessness. The book was written to be helpful for people from all walks of life, in addition to those in the health professions.
