Traumatic Brain Injury

Recovering from a traumatic brain injury whether life threatening or concussion is sometimes a long road. Regarding concussions, we manage the entire recovery process.

Concussions should never be treated lightly. According to the American Association of Neurological Surgeons, there is no such thing as a mild concussion. Approximately 50% of our patient base is made up of people who have suffered from one or more concussions. No two concussion patients are alike. Cookie-cutter treatments will fail many mTBI patients. Post concussion symptoms can include, double or blurry vision, headaches, anxiety, depression, dizziness, and the sense of losing control over one’s life. Having worked with professional and Olympic athletes, we are keenly aware of how devastating these injuries can be to one’s future. Restoring function gets you back in the game of life not just back on the ice or field.

For more significant traumatic brain injuries, which are often accompanied with other physical injuries, our work begins after surgery and/or hospitalization. Each unique case can present a host of issues that need to be treated. Our one-on-one approach allows us to custom tailor treatment protocols for each individual. We seek to establish a strong neurological foundation upon which other therapies (e.g., occupational, speech, physical) can build resulting in better outcomes.

PTSD can be a devastating symptom of traumatic brain injury. We have some very effective strategies to help reduce the symptoms of PTSD. Here is a great article about how effective the strategies are in restoring mental health.

Our diagnostics: Videonystagmography (VNG), Saccadometer, Computerized Posturography (CAPS), and physical neurological examination
Our therapeutics: Vision, Motor, Sensory, and Vestibular modality protocols specific for each patient to ensure positive outcomes.
