Reviews from 3 Calgary Concussion Patients
Did you know that Chiropractic can be an effective alternative healthcare treatment option for some concussion patients? According to the Canadian Chiropractic Association, healthcare providers such as Chiropractors can help you manage symptoms associated with concussions such as headaches and pain in your neck, shoulders and back.
At Revelation Health Centre in Calgary, Dr. Battershill accomplishes this by using a stimulus-response type of treatment plan for concussion and traumatic brain injury (TBI) patients. This involves stimulating the injured areas of the brain through exercises and other treatments which then creates a positive feedback loop which is expressed through increased muscle and nerve function in those targeted areas.
Dr. Battershill has seen great success with several concussion patients in the past, and would love to share some of those experiences with you. Here are three recent concussion patient testimonials in Calgary regarding Dr. Battershill’s treatments at Revelation Health. Also see:

I have had symptoms from post-concussion syndrome for about nine months. For most of that time I was seeking treatment from various medical professionals that didn’t seem to really get me anywhere. My symptoms included: constant headaches, nausea, muscle soreness, balance issues, and serious dizziness.
After a few months of spinal and brain treatment from Revelation Health Centre (specifically Dr. John) my headaches have became increasingly uncommon, the nausea is completely gone, my balance is fully restored, and the dizziness is almost non-existent.
I am finally living almost free of pain after almost a year and I don’t think I could have gotten here without Revelation Health. As an athlete who hasn’t been able to play sports since the injury, I feel a new sense of comfort and freedom finally being cleared to go back.
I would highly highly suggest visiting the Health Centre.

I am very, very grateful to have found Dr. John Battershill for my severe head injury!!! He has made such a huge difference in my life.
Prior to seeing him, I was sleeping 12 hours a day (no, not kidding) and was losing hope of ever getting better. On the days I had to work, I had to pop 4 energy pills just to keep myself awake. But I wasn’t a whole lot better, my brain was still foggy and my comprehension was slow.
After seeing Dr. John for a week, my energy level went up immediately and my brain felt clear for the first time in a long time. I no longer need the 12 hours of sleep; 8 hours is sufficient like a normal human being. I couldn’t believe it. Could not believe it.
I have suffered 7 years (7 long years) and no one in the hospital or my family doctor ever told me about different head concussion treatments like this one. Actually, no treatment was offered to me at all by the medical doctors, they only told me to sleep and sleep. What I am most angry about is that they didn’t even advise me of some of the common side effects of severe head injury, and left me suffer severe depression on my own for a long time.
In the last 7 years, I have taken more than 2 years off to sleep thinking that it’s the only way to recover. But I never did recover, it fact my condition got worse and worse. I wish I had known Dr. John years before and I could have gotten help earlier.
If you are suffering from severe head injury, I would definitely recommend you give Dr. John a try.

I suffered a ruptured brain aneurysm in May of this year. After receiving exceptional life saving care in hospital and 3 months of recovery, I was still experiencing severe headaches that would come on suddenly and sometimes last for minutes or sometimes for days.
I visited Dr. John to have an adjustment to my lower back from the extended period of limited mobility. I mentioned the frequent and reoccurring headaches and we discussed the surgery and location of the injury. Dr. John suggested that we look at treating the injury as a concussion or other type of traumatic brain injury.
After completing an assessment we started with eye light therapy combined with physical exercises to stimulate my brain followed with anti-oxidant nutrition and Chiropractic care. The frequency and severity of the headaches diminished within 3 weeks and I have now been free of symptoms for 8 weeks.
Thank you for your professional care over the last 7 years.
