SpineMark recently hosted an educational forum at the MAC, the world’s largest social and athletic club in Portland, OR, to announce the launch of PreVPRO. It’s a Prevacus, LLC, product that will potentially mitigate the symptoms and duration after a concussion occurs, a new, holistic, breakthrough, non-opioid treatment for pain and traumatic brain injuries, including concussions.
It will be sold over the counter for use before participating in athletics. It can also be used on the battlefield by the military. It’s applied prophylactically and is safe for use on children and adults.
Dr. VanLandingham’s back story is dramatic. He was a month away from starting a degree program in physical therapy at Florida A&M University when his world abruptly changed, and neurology and physical therapy took on a far more personal meaning, After nearly losing his life to his own TBI, his recovery was strenuous, leaving him with short-term amnesia for a year following the injury. He returned to school though and earned all As in his physical therapy program despite lacking the necessary motor skills to even drive. This was followed with a Ph.D. in neuroscience at FSU under the mentorship of associate professor Cathy Levenson, Ph.D. Their research focused on the effect of dietary zinc deficiency in recovery from a brain injury.
