Traumatic Brain Injury Rehabilitation
When the brain functions more efficiently, so does the body. For your traumatic brain injury (TBI) treatment, we will create a customized brain rehabilitation program focused on restoring functionality in all aspects of your life. A traumatic brain injury doesn’t have to be the end-all of life as you knew it. With hard work and the incredible technology afforded to us today, folks who experience a brain injury have access to a healthier and improved way of life.
Until recently, the only possible treatment for TBI was through medication. Luckily, this is no longer the case. NeuraPerformance specializes in different brain training programs that help the body naturally heal tissue and regain strength, both of which aid in the overall treatment of TBI. Some programs offered at our facility include neurofeedback, gyrostim, HBOT, Dynavision D2™, baseline testing, and NIR therapy.
Each TBI treatment program is uniquely designed for every patient who visits our facility, but NIR therapy, neurofeedback, and HBOT are some of the most impactful services we’ve seen help treat traumatic brain injury.
It is important to note that we are welcoming to patients of all levels of traumatic brain injury, from mild to severe. It is possible to improve brain health through different brain training programs.
Brain Trainings That Help Rehab TBI
Near Infrared Light Therapy (NIR Therapy) is an FDA-cleared way to increase circulation to the brain. Increased circulation means the brain has access to necessary blood flow, which carries oxygen and other nutrients it needs to function at its peak. However, before an injured brain can function exceptionally well, it must first heal.
The infrared light penetrates the skull bone to reach the areas deep within the brain. According to one of the leading scientists for NIR therapy Dr. Michael Hamblin as published in the MIT Open Access Articles Forum, the light increases respiration to the mitochondria in the brain, which activates transcription factors. This helps reduce inflammatory mediators and inhibiting apoptosis.
Neurofeedback is another holistic therapy that helps naturally heal the brain without pharmaceuticals. It begins by creating a readable brain map. Through a cap that houses electrodes positioned to collect information from your brain, a map is created that details areas of the brain that are overworking or underperforming. This map is used as a foundation for tracking the health improvements of brain training.
Neurofeedback is incredibly extensive in the way it collects and identifies brain activity; however, it is a relatively simple treatment for patients to practice. Patients attend continuous training sessions that, through various exercises, focus on improving special functional areas of the brain.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT)
This is an inspiring video of a young man who suffered a severe traumatic brain injury from a car accident, was in a coma, pursued various types of treatment at a TBI rehab center where he was finally discharged after 3 months when he was considered a failure because of minimal progress. At that time, his loved ones pursued hyperbaric oxygen therapy. You’ll have to watch the results to see the incredible changes for yourself.
Spoiler: He transformed from an unresponsive person bound to a wheelchair to someone who was walking, talking, eating, and moving on his own after 90 HBOT treatments within a year.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is a form of treatment that exposes the body to pure oxygen at increased pressure, which promotes increased blood flow. This encourages the body to naturally heal damaged tissue and stimulate the release of stem cells.
