Concussions and Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs) are brain injuries that can alter brain functions short and/or long term.
Brain injuries such as these are often hard to identify and treat, as structural damages are not normally present in brain imaging (MRI, CT). Despite this lack of visual damage to the brain, patients still often experience symptoms such as headaches, dizziness, confusion, fogginess, nausea, head pressure, memory-loss, and decreased brain function, among many others. For many people, concussions and other brain injuries are mild, and recovery takes only a short amount of time. However, for those who suffer from serious concussions and traumatic brain injuries, full recovery is very hard, if not impossible. The changes to the brain can have devastating and life-changing effects.
Because of the complexity of concussions and traumatic brain injuries, recovery can be difficult, requiring highly specialized education and training. Additionally, no two brain injuries are alike, and effects of similar injuries can vary from person to person. In order to maximize potential of recovery, it is important for healthcare providers to identify the areas of decreased function and develop a personalized and strategic plan for each individual patient. Severe and even mild brain injuries can result in consequences to a person's life, impacting family, employment, and day to day social interactions. Without proper rehabilitation, individuals may be left in long-term injured states. However, long-term rehabilitation can help improve brain function and regain independence.
NeuroHealth Services aims to help patients restore and/or enhance brain function and independence using a specialized approach, suited to each individual patient. We utilize the following diagnostic equipment and rehab techniques:
Through in-office diagnostic testing, we identify brain impairments and dysfunction. We then develop a specific and individualized care program addressing any deficiency, carefully measure progress via re-examination, and modify treatment therapy based on patient progress. During intensive therapy, in-office rehabilitation can be complete in as little as one week.
