Knowledge is POWER!
This program is designed to empower patients with persistent post-concussion symptoms information that you can utilize to take control of your recovery!
Concussion is recoverable. But it is also confusing. Many patients experience conflicting and confusing advice and an endless cycle of referrals to neurologist after neurologist. You need to have the right knowledge in order to understand the root cause of your symptoms, and how to successfully get rid of them.
In this program you’ll learn from, and have access to experts in concussion, concussion rehab, sleep, nutrition, and mental health. You’ll also be added to our peer-support group forum where you can interact with other people going through exactly what you’re going through.
The interesting thing is that this program WORKS! And works very well! Members reduce their symptoms by an average of 50% within the first 3 weeks of joining!

I am not sure if I am on the right track and hope I answered the survey correctly. Wow! So many people are in the same condition! Glad we are all here!
How do I find my beginning symptoms severity score?
If you look on the right hand side of the screen on the “News Feed” page, you’ll see all of your “Quiz” scores!
Thank you for the evidence based course. I found it very educational. I’m feeling confident about (and doing) the diet, mindfulness, doing the neck exercise and seeing PT and Chiro for my neck (very similar exercises to what was recommended). I think I still need to see a Naturopathic dr for the hormones (they are still very messed up and endocrinologist I saw just put me on birth control but that hasnt seemed to help. My first MRI I had showed that the stalk of my pituitary gland was severed… but then they did a repeat a few months later with dye and it showed it wasnt, fortunately… but I have struggled a lot with hormones since the mva. I also struggle a lot with barometric pressure change… assuming all the dysautonomia exercises would help for that eventually? My TMJ on the left is also out but having treatment for that too now. My mva was in 2014 but I’ve been hit from behind twice since then as well… so I feel like I make progress and then backtrack a bit… but I’ve kept working, managing a house and 2 kids etc by pacing. After my mva in 2014 I eventually had vision therapy that helped tremendously with my headaches and double vision. I was also diagnosed with vestibulopathy and had some vestibular therapy. I think doing the proprioception exercises will help tremendously… I get off balance in the dark. Of course my symptoms are day and night from the initial MVA… and I’m hopeful by continuing what you’ve recommended in this program I’ll keep progressing. Thanks again.
Glad you enjoyed it Natalie! We hope you find it helpful. As you mentioned it may give you benefit to follow the CFix plan but also be a spring board to you getting more specific care that you need (i.e. hormones, proprioception etc.)
Hi….my concussion was a football and wakeboarding injury that started in July. I have gone through each area of the program. The biggest areas of challenge are activity intolerance (blood flow/dysautonomia) and Hashimotos (that I think was triggered after my concussion) and low testosterone. I have been working with a functional MD on diet (high protein, no gluten, etc), on DHEA and pregnenolone, and LDN (in addition to other nutritional support…fish oil, magnesium, creatine, b vitamins (9 and 12), thyroid support (includes zinc and selenium). I have also done 10 sessions of neurofeedback. My doctor is suspicious of possible EBV reactivation….so also using high dose monolaurin and Valtrex. I just got my most recent labs back and my thyroid ab are increasing, in addition to total IgE. I have had the flu (like actual positive test for flu) and have been sick with high fevers for 3 days after travel (so basically I have been sick with high fever, body pain, chills, headache in addition to my concussion sx for 6 day and then again for 3 days in the last month). Any suggestions or ideas you have or resources you can point me towards. I live in SC where the FM doc is good but not doesn’t necessarily specialize in concussion/TBI management. Thanks for any insight.
Hi Holman, your func MD is the best resource to conduct testing for EBV and other virus’. I suspect there also is some other GUT issues causing immune tolerance issues.
Thank you all very much! Rosarie
Thank you for putting together such a comprehensive course! It has been very helpful and encouraging!
Glad to hear it 🙂
Hi! I am wondering if there is anyone in Calgary AB or close, that you would recommend for a comprehensive evaluation. It is really hard to know who is good.
We have some people in Calgary but I think the best bet is to go through the program to first find out the main symptom drivers for you. This will help you narrow down who you need to see! And we’ll help you with that 🙂
Where can I find the list of concussion professionals in my area? I am logged in when looking through the app.
Hi Monique – clinics.completeconcussions.com
I was slow to complete the course, but I feel I am now back to normal! I wish this course had been available in 2015 when I suffered my concussion. I was well on the way to healing when I started this course. Based on what I’ve learned before on my journey, CCMI is definitely the correct way to go. Hang in there!
Awesome!! Glad you’ve recovered 🙂
Great to hear Monique!
I enrolled in the program because I have recurring headaches, pressures, back pains, and fatigue despite the manual therapy sessions a year ago and do the exercises. I was relieved then, but I wondered why I was having the same issue now and then, and worst, it woke me up in my sleep. Nevertheless, this concussion management program is impressive. It offered complete information that helped me know the root cause of my issues, which is neck dysfunction. The good thing is, I know what to do about it and what to avoid, especially with the concussion diet and about the sleep. Therefore, it pays to complete the program; it cleared out my worries. The learning I had were excellent. Thank you Dr. Cam, Dr Paul and Melinda for being part of my journey!
You’re welcome! Glad we could help 🙂
Such good news! Thanks for sharing your feedback.
I wouldn’t have ever found my way through the maze of the multiple complex confusing symptoms I was experiencing and figure out the numerous people I needed on my team to heal from this! It is literally the hardest thing I have ever done, and you were right all along, looking back I can feel that I had let a number of troubling health things slide as if they had no consequence but I was wrong even though I could get through my days I didn’t feel good in my body and there were warnings, the concussion just made it impossible to function. Everything just shut down and it was impossible to reboot without the right help. “Doing the hard things” the ones that provoked my symptoms were the way through… you help saved my life! I have been on this program for one year, when I would get stuck at a plateau I would find the next clue through your Lives or program videos or resources videos and then I knew how to proceed. I have a good team (hands and hearts) and I know I can call on you all again when the next thing happens; I am not afraid anymore. I survived this… I can survive anything and help others at the same time! I love you guys with my entire heart for this most beautiful gift 🎁
YEEEESSSS! Manon, you have been a rockstar! You showed up and YOU did the work! Thank you so much for entrusting us to be a part of your recovery journey. Here’s to a new you in 2022 :). Much love!
Manon – Happy new Year! What an incredible message. Thank you. As Cam said, it was all of your hard work, day by day you made improvements. We are so happy you have made such big improvements and we wish you the best in 2022!
Thank you to each of the instructors! I have been on this journey a long time and I have never felt this empowered before or this good! So thank you! Thank you for the tools, the knowledge, the exercises and the hope! It took me awhile to get through the course but I am so thankful I did. Thank you!
You are very welcome.
Is it possible to get a copy of my Symptom Severity Quiz to take to Naturopath apt?
Hi Deb – I’m not sure if there’s anywhere to print the results on this platform, but what you can do is simply google “SCAT 5” and download a copy of it and fill it out whenever you like 🙂
Does this course explore POTS and are there any recovery stories around autonomic dysfunction secondary to a head injury? Thank you!
Yes it does! And yes we’ve had a number of members have this issue and resolve it 🙂
I would just like to say personally thank you for this course. You are all very knowledgable people and I have learnt so much about my condition that no other medical people ever told me as well as treatment and everything else associated with having a concussion. My symptoms have lessened greatly so thank you again and I wish your clinic all the best for the great work your doing.
You are very welcome! So glad you found it helpful.
As I said after I watched webinar, it was like a “breath of fresh air” to find someone who acually understood concussion and what needed to be done. I took the “Concussion Fix” course and took notes carefully, but felt as if I was already doing most of what was covered but learned some pointers on the way. Thanks again.
Is it possible to unmark the modules/courses? (I needed to print all the necessary documents at one time so went quickly through the modules to print everything)
I have gone in and manually reset your progress!
Thank you very much!
Hello. I apologize if I’m asking in the wrong place. I tried to do a search of the resources and groups but nothing came up. Does hot weather cause inflammation? Or sudden change to hot weather? I was doing quite well for a couple of weeks and then it got hot this week and my headaches have increased again.
I think this is on the main course page which is public facing vs. inside the platform, on the newsfeed, or on the discussion boards which are for member discussions only…but that’s ok! I’ll respond here. In general hot weather causes your heart rate to increase with lower workloads than it would in cooler temps. So if there is an autonomic driver to your symptoms…this could be a factor. Hot weather can also increase dehydration which can pull fluid from tissues and create some inflammation in joints – which can increase headaches…but this would be counteracted with increased fluid intake. Heat is also a stressor on the body so there’s that as well. The other possibility is that it’s pure coincidence!
Completed the course modules Nov 25, 22. Just did the last questionnaire. Diet recommendations really helped. Magnesium (from pumpkin seeds) seems to help reduce my neuropathy a lot. The tests, treadmill and motion sensitivity, helped to establish where I was and how hard to push. Diet, exercise, and motion sensitivity exercises critical to recovery. I am probably at 80% recovery, but have had huge improvement in lifestyle. The last 20% will come when I can eat and drink anything I want. I cut down a lot on alcohol, refined sugar, and gluten for the moment and have been doing so for months. Good luck to you all.
Thanks for sharing Phil. Diet can be a big piece of the puzzle for most people.
Hi, I came off the concussion course 60% through because I couldn’t access the zoom element which was so frustrating especially as it worked initially. Is there a possibility I could rejoin as my symptoms aren’t improving? Would the sign up fee be able to be waived? My son is going to try to help me fix the zoom issue
The Zoom is only one component…The real value in the program is the program itself! Yes you can get back in with no registration fee :). Just log into your account and go to “billing” then “subscriptions” and choose to re-activate your subscription.
