The mission of Concussion Alliance is to provide a science and research-based resource/community that is accessible to the everyday people who suffer from concussions and their families. This project aims to promote and showcase research around alternative treatments to provide hope for those who haven’t been able to achieve results with traditional treatments as part of their goal to provide information about a wider range of treatments than can be found on any other concussion website.
