To Schedule an Appointment with Dr. Adam Harcourt, call 805-962-1988.

Dr. Adam Harcourt is one of the leading doctors on Concussion Treatment. He has developed the Imagine X Concussion Program, which is one of the best and most cutting-edge concussion programs in the country. Dr. Harcourt has developed the program based on the latest research (some of which is his own), his years of experience seeing concussion patients, and his passion for finding the root cause of post-concussion symptoms and correcting them. The program has 2 options, accommodating both local and out-of-town patients. Out-of-town patients are often able to be seen on a 1-week intensive schedule and are able to return home with significant improvement. Patients must be pre-screened and qualified for the program. Please take the Post-Concussion Qualification Questionnaire and our office will contact you.

Dr. Harcourt has also developed a very exciting new program that can actually help prevent future concussions! The Imagine X Concussion Prevention Program is 4 weeks of customized therapies including Dynavision D2 treatment, which improves reaction time, speed and coordination so that you can see a hit coming and be much more likely to avoid it. Focused, specific neck strengthening exercises will prevent a more serious concussion if a hit does happen. Research has shown that for every 1 pound of increased neck strength, concussion risk drops by 5%. With our neck strengthening program, we are seeing patients improve their neck strength by up to 17 pounds - Do the math!*

*As with any medical treatment, results vary from case to case.

The Imagine X Concussion Prevention Program is completely one-of-a-kind. Dr. Harcourt is leading the charge on concussion treatment, prevention and research.

almost always

A concussion is a mild traumatic brain injury that results in disrupted brain function,
stretching and damaging of brain cells.
Even though some of the damage caused is not readily detected by the victim,
a concussion can cause effects that are serious, lasting for days, weeks or even years.

Cuncussion

Possible Symptoms of a Head Injury

  • Headache
  • Irritability
  • Slowed Reaction Time
  • Trouble Concentrating and Reading
  • Change in Normal Sleep Patterns
  • Memory Loss
  • Dizziness
  • Visual Disturbance
  • Trouble Reading
Young Brains Are More Susceptible
Young brains are more susceptible to head injury than adult brains. Young brains may also require more time to recover. After a concussion, the possibility of sustaining another concussion is greater, in addition to the amount of time it may take to resolve the new condition. New information now indicates that females may be more susceptible than males and that susceptibility may be genetically linked.

How We Can Help!

Imagine X Functional Neurology uses the latest research-backed examinations and in-office diagnostic testing equipment to pinpoint functional or cognitive brain impairments. We offer intensive, individualized methods that allow us to continuously measure our patients' progress and refine treatment regimens. Through our extensive evaluation and treatment process, we help the brain to restore impaired functions by encouraging targeted activity in damaged areas that helps rebuild neural pathways.
Through our extensive interaction and feedback with our patients, we facilitate the process of re-activating the pathways in the brain, paving the way to a more fully functioning neurological system and a more vibrant and restored lifestyle.
Success Story
Tim, an Imagine X Concussion Program patient, began to finally experience renewed hope and functionality again after hitting his head in a car accident. He suffered fatigue, dizziness, and double vision for more than four years, he sought the advice of numerous doctors and was taking several medications just to get through the day. In desperation, he came to Imagine X to get relief. Dr. Adam Harcourt devised a personalized plan for treatment, which corrected Tim's vision, greatly improved his dizziness and he began to know what "normal" felt like again.*
*As with any medical treamtent, results vary from case to case.
