Happy Brain© Program

“Addressing the physical aspects of traumatic brain injuries”

 

The Happy Brain program is a network of certified providers that are trained to evaluate and treat mild traumatic brain injured patients, both acute and chronic, using Trauma-Free Treatment© protocols.

The Happy Brain program is a neurological based approach to evaluation and treatment of concussed patients.  Evaluation consists of neurological testing of the brain, brainstem and cranial nerves to objectively identify where deficits are present. Trauma-Free Treatment© protocols are a series of specific manual manipulation techniques used to directly affect concussion related signs and symptoms.
