"A game changer. This book is the most useful piece of literature I have ever read on concussion. It gives patients all the tools, techniques and treatments they can use to heal themselves, as well as providing a workbook that lets them track their progress. It's also useful to doctors as the most comprehensive look at brain injury and all of the modalities currently available to treat it. In its class, it is the best book on the market."
"As a pro hockey player, I have dealt with several brain injuries as a result of contact on the ice. Unlike any other injury, with concussions there is more worry about whether you will ever heal properly. With the Concussion Repair Manual, Dr. Dan has given me a whole lot of confidence that I can improve and heal not only the past injuries, but whatever might come my way down the road."
"I've never read such a comprehensive manual for treating TBI's and concussions using the most cutting-edge protocols that exist - protocols that combine ancient wisdom and modern science in an informed, educational and easy-to-understand way. What I especially like about the Concussion Repair Manual is that the book can also be used as a simple tool to get smarter and think better, even if you haven't had a concussion. Whether you are a physician, a patient or simply an optimal health seeker, this book is a must-have for your personal health library."
"The conventional model of concussion recovery is broken. Finally, there is a book that codifies what I truly believe; that there is another, more comprehensive and integrative approach that can vastly improve the lives of patients. Dan's CRM is required reading for concussion patients, their caregivers, and all allied healthcare practitioners who care for these patients. There is a better way and this is it. "

Like Dr. Engle, I sought out specialists in chiropractic, naturopaths, homeopaths, biofeedback, acupuncture, and modality to try to put Humpty-Dumpty back together again. What I have learned through experience and through reading this manual is that each of us is unique. This is a struggle you will face for years to come. I understand my TBI can raise its ugly head when I’m stressed or over-tired. Only recently, I discovered I can type words perfectly backward, just like my words come out backward when I’m stressed. (Under normal conditions, I couldn’t do that if I tried.)
As someone who suffered for more years than was necessary, I highly recommend this book. Learn to adapt what works and pass over those things that don’t. As a TBI patient, you are now Sherlock Holmes in your discovery of the best path to regain the life you enjoyed before the injury. Is it easy? No! Is it worth it? Absolutely! This is your life, and you definitely have the power to improve it each and every day. Dr. Engle provides the roadmap to a better life.
The practitioner supported therapies in the book provide a selection of possibilities to help you mitigate your pain and improve your life. My success in recovery came from doing the research and applying those strategies that worked best in my situation. Dr. Engle helps you navigate through the difficulties following a TBI.
The design of the book with the Quick Tip highlights, the definitions of technical terms, important items of note are useful to the reader. I appreciated the overview at the beginning of each chapter of the material that would be covered.
I appreciated the extensive list of resources and the even more extensive list of references at the end of the book. I'll be exploring more of these references as i seek to help my loved ones.
The book is a manual that will be accessed over and over again. If you or someone you love is dealing with TBI, the information in this book offers practical information and most importantly, hope that there are options to be tried. I know I'll be referring to it regularly.
The great thing about "The Concussion repair Manual?" Not only can it help those who have been unfortunate enough to have suffered traumatic brain injury, it can also serve as a handbook for those looking to "hack" their own brain for better mental clarity and performance, which of course goes hand in hand with the enhancement of physical ability. Also, the negative sides of treatment are not ignored. It is essential to have a heads up on what the side effects can be, especially when treatments are combined with existing prescription drugs you might be taking.
The presentation of the subject matter could easily have become a boring slog-fest, but it was actually a pleasure to read. I felt I was learning something new with each turn of the page. Written clearly and intelligently, but with the layman in mind as you might hope. For me, this book is the most interesting read on the brain, how it works, how to get the most out of this fascinating piece of hardware, and finally, what to do when things go wrong, since Norman Doidge gave us "The Brain That Changes Itself."
"The Concussion repair Manual" is a MUST have for those who have sustained a TBI (and their families,) and highly recommended for anybody who has even a passing interest in the working of the brain, or health and well-being in general.
