Concussion and Military Veteran PTSD Intensive Therapy Programs and Research Studies

Due to the overwhelming success of our pilot Concussion Intensive Therapy program and Research Study with former NFL players, the Dr. John E. Upledger Foundation is dedicated to the ongoing development of future programs and the valuable research they yield.

On September 24th, 6 additional former NFL players will participate in a second Concussion Intensive Program. Several of those players are now warriors in the awareness campaign about the debilitating long term effects of Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIS) and multiple concussions. We will continue to partner with them to spread the word about how manual therapies including CST, NM, and VM are critical missing pieces in existing concussion treatment protocol for people of all ages.

On January 18, 2016, we launch our next Military veterans PTSD Intensive Therapy Program and Research Study. If you are a certified therapist and would like to be considered for our ongoing programs, please fill out the Therapist Application found on the home page of the website.
