In this solo episode of the Brainiac podcast, Melissa briefly covers the different phenotypes, also known as subtypes, of concussion. Phenotypes are a way to organize symptoms and then use this information to guide rehabilitation decisions and recovery in a methodological way. While there is some variation on phenotypes depending on the research article and team, Melissa discusses the signs and symptoms of cervicogenic, oculomotor, vestibular, psychological, autonomic, metabolic and inflammatory phenotypes and who may best be able to help. This episode will be of interest to concussion warriors and clinicians interested in learning more about the different ways concussions may present in their office.
