Subtle brain injuries, when a person wasn’t knocked unconscious, for instance, can still carry enormous impact to the brain.

We see many, many people in our office who appear to the world to be just fine. And many doctors may have told them they are and that their problems are now psychological. But the person knows very well that they are not functioning the way they did before the accident. (See testimonials for head injuries.)
