International Combat Stress Conference Presentation: Unseen Effects of Blast Injuries and Irlen Spectral Filters as a Treatment
A presentation on “The Unseen Effects of Blast Injuries” was made at the 19th Annual International Combat Stress Conference by neuropsychologist Roxanna Farinpour. She has examined those Marines returning from Iraq and Afghanistan with a history of TBI and head injuries from blast exposure resulting in Headache Syndrome. Over 50-60% of Vets returning from Iraq and Afghanistan exposed to blasts sustained a brain injury. Of the 978 Marines Dr. Farinpour has seen, 98% reported headaches with 85% classified as possible or definite migraines which interfered with daily activities. Of the 20 plus Marines with headaches and/or migraines and have not responded to medication, all received immediate and complete relief with their Irlen Spectral Filters. They were having headaches 100% of the time; and with their Irlen Spectral Filters, no longer have any headaches. They were having an average of 19 migraines a month; and with their Irlen Spectral Filters, report that they no longer have migraines.
Thank you to the Irlen International Headquarters.
