Dr. Fong, Ph.D. explains how the brain can be affected by COVID-19 and how it compares to patients with mTBI or concussions. She goes into intricate detail about how COVID-19 affects the brain, what parts of your brain are affected, and how you can combat the effects of COVID-19.

COVID-19 has many lasting effects that some people have to endure after recovering from the virus's initial effects. Some of these effects include brain fog and separation of neurons from blood flow; two very common symptoms in concussions and mTBI patients. Our doctors at Cognitive FX have been busy doing ample COVID 19 Research that has provided insight into the ongoing effects of Covid on the brain.

In this case study, Dr. Fong worked with a post-COVID 19 Patient that showed common symptoms with a post-concussion syndrome (PCS) patient. The video explains the comparison between the two types of patients and sheds some light and insight on how post-COVID-19 patients may be affected and how they can potentially recover from lingering symptoms.


Do you have lingering symptoms from a concussion or COVID-19? We offer free consultations to help you out! Link below:
