The most common complaint in families of those who suffered head trauma seems to be: “we cannot find the help we need”. After brain injury, various difficulties can be experienced: memory loss, weakening of attention, personality change, irritability, sleep disorder, terrible headaches or migraines, sensory sensitivity, and more. Many patients are frustrated about their decreased ability to concentrate or complete tasks. They are likely to suffer from inability to verbalize their thoughts and intentions, decreased understanding of conversation, and inability to sustain conversation.
After traumatic brain injury, patients often need to re-learn many simple tasks of life, and be involved with several professionals: physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, cognitive therapy, and more.
Brain injury can occur in many different ways, including: blunt head injury, exposure to toxic substances, internal incidents such as transient ischemic attack or stroke, hypoxia, heart or vascular problems, and encephalopathy.
Other sources of brain injury are illnesses that affect the brain’s cognitive functioning such as Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s, chronic Lyme disease, and other neurodegenerative diseases.
At the Neuroscience Team, we have adopted a unique approach that assists patients in the recovery process from cortical damage. Integrative techniques such as photobiomodulation, neurofeedback, Alpha-Stim treatment, meditation and peripheral biofeedback are utilized to calm autonomic function and reduce PTSD and anxiety effects. Cognitive skills training may be implemented to build back cognition and strategies to be more efficient. Couples or family therapies may also be recommended, to help the entire family coping with change.
It is no longer necessary to feel alone in dealing with the blows that came unexpectedly.
The Neuroscience Team would like to assist you.
