Attorney General Mike DeWine, legislative leaders and chiropractors met on Tuesday March 20 to bring attention to pain management options, such as chiropractic care, that offer people an alternative to prescription drugs.

We all know the immediate reaction to witnessing a huge hit to the head: “Are you okay?! How many fingers am I holding up? Stay awake! Can you stand up?” We see it happen in football, cheerleading, soccer, at construction sites, or just slipping on the ice or falling down the stairs! Anyone, of all ages, can hit their head.

Are they necessary? Are they enough? Concussion symptoms and return-to-play assessments are now a part of basic training for youth soccer, football, and other contact sport coaches at all levels of play. Since this is a fairly new concept, many parents wonder if the new protocols are necessary or if they are overly cautious.

Neurofeedback Series: F1, F2 and ADD / ADHD

When using Neurofeedback to train brain cells to work more efficiently, one area that we often train for more optimum function is the frontal lobe. The frontal lobe is where the decisions for action are made whereas the parietal, temporal and occipital lobes are where the information is received from our bodies and environment.

Some areas in the frontal lobe have been linked to different aspects of the decision making process. For example, F1, found in the left frontal lobe is…
