Concussion & Brain Injury Treatment

A Brain Injury can be classified into two categories, a Mild Traumatic Brain Injury (mTBI) or a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) based on the severity of the head injury. A concussion is also referred to as a Mild Traumatic Brain Injury (mTBI). At Precision Brain Center we provide the best concussion & brain injury treatment by leveraging the brain’s inherent ability to change and create new connections.

When a damaged brain is stimulated at the correct frequency and intensity, new neuron connection can be formed. Every therapy utilized is purposeful for activating exact brain structures and rebuilding neural pathways. Therapy regimens include innovative balance training, vestibular rehabilitation, eye movement exercises, complex movement patterns, translational otolithic activation, rotational chair therapies, electrical somatosensory stimulation, visual activation, and auditory tones.

Concussion & brain injury can cause many terrible symptoms that can sometimes develop immediately or with delayed onset months after the injury occurred. During a brain injury, many different structures in the brain can be affected. Structures in the brain responsible for processing the world accurately often get damaged as a consequence of a concussion injury. After a concussion or brain injury, neurons can lose their ability to inhibit meaningless stimulation resulting in a hypersensitive nervous system. Often people who have suffered a concussion experience brain fog, irritability, dizziness, sensitivity to light, sensitivity to sound, memory loss, lack of motivation, depression, inaccurate depth perception, headaches, speech and language difficulties, emotional disturbances, poor focus and attention, feelings of disconnection, and unpleasant sensations on their head or body.

Our approach to concussion & brain injury treatment utilizes multimodal neurological therapies that re-calibrate the way the brain processes and perceives information. Rewiring neuron connection to accurately process incoming information from the environment enables a person’s brain to efficiently determine the appropriate motor, cognitive, or limbic response. Accurate brain perception of the world surrounding us is the key to achieving optimal health, longevity, and most certainly sports performance. Good brain function enables us to become the most healthy, happy, intelligent, and of course successful human beings possible.
