WHAT IS A CONCUSSION?
A concussion is a type of head trauma that causes injury to the brain and may reduce your brain's ability to function at its best. The vast majority of concussions are brought on by blows to the head, whether by work, sports, or a random accident. Concussions can vary in severity, ranging from mild to more serious, and are often classified as a type of traumatic brain injury (TBI). Without the guidance of a medical professional, it can be hard to determine how severe a concussion is at first, which is why our team at The Wellness Institute of Dallas encourages patients to seek help if head trauma is endured. In some cases, the brain can rattle in the skull during a concussion, causing potential injury and lowered brain function. If you think you or a loved one have experienced a recent concussion, contact our Dallas, TX office for help.
"After going to several doctors to help with a balance issue my daughter was having, due to an intense concussion, we found The Wellness Institute of Dallas. This was the first place that was able to pinpoint the issue, know how to fix it and to get results-in a safe way and without medications. Dr. Rayner and Dr. Nutt went out of their way to expedite the training and healing process in order to get my daughter back into a competitive state. I highly recommend The Wellness Institute for athletes needing to finetune balance, quick-twitch muscles, spatial awareness, etc., as well as anyone who has suffered the effects of a concussion. Wish we would have found them sooner! Professional. Knowledgeable. Personable. Able to track progress. Innovative and Safe. Highly recommended!"- C.W. / Google / Apr 19, 2020
"Dr Rayner and Dr Nutt are amazing at helping with alternative approaches to health and wellness issues. Dr Rayner gave me a blood test and then great supplements to support my deficiencies. Dr Nutt helped me deal with PTSD that occurred when I was a professional equestrian from falls. I never knew how several concussions created eye tracking and PTSD issues. They are resolving along with supplementation support and eye exercises. Also, have had some great Choropractic adjustments and Dr Rayner and his staff are very through, professional, and spend time with me. Amazing health care providers!!"- D.N. / Google / Jun 19, 2020

- Blurred or double vision
- Slurred speech
- Noticing a steep decline in cognitive functions
