About Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
Traumatic Brain Injury or TBI can cause a wide range of functional changes affecting thinking, sensation, language, or emotions. It can also cause the total or partial functional loss of a body part.
The effects of TBI can be mild, moderate, or severe, depending on the extent of the damage to the brain. TBI can result in an acquired brain injury (ABI), which is an injury that occurs after birth and is not due to a genetic or congenital anomaly.
TBI can also result in a traumatic anoxic brain injury (TABI), which is caused by the interruption of oxygen flow to the brain.
No brain injuries are without their consequences and these injuries can cause mild, moderate, or severe brain and body dysfunction, depending on the severity of the damage.
TBIs can result in a wide range of cognitive, physical, and psychological challenges that require specialized treatment by a team of qualified medical professionals.
The road to recovery from a TBI is often long and difficult, but with the help of the type of functional neurology we practice at APEX Brain Centers, many people are able to return to their previous level of functioning.
How Brain Rehabilitation & Training Works for Brain Injury
The APEX Brain Centers Approach Has Helped Thousands Regain Function & Quality of Life
Every patient's brain rehabilitation and training journey begins with the creation of an individualized care plan by our board-certified physicians and is informed by the following:
- Lab Work to measure internal biochemistry and establish a metabolic baseline.
- Cognitive Testing to evaluate attention, focus, memory, impulse control, and other critical cognitive abilities.
- Comprehensive History including medical history, nutrition questionnaires, and lifestyle questions.
All APEX intensive rehabilitation programs combine treatment frequency, repetition, and duration multiple times per day to drive optimal patient outcomes.
- Diagnostic Testing to measure internal biochemistry and establish a metabolic baseline.
- Rehabilitation Modalities to evaluate attention, focus, memory, impulse control, and other critical cognitive abilities.
- Metabolic and Nutritional Therapy to identify and correct nutritional deficiencies and optimize nutritional supplementation.
Patients' rehabilitation and training care plans continue as long as needed through a combination of the following distance and in-person treatment elements.
- Retesting to continue to monitor internal biochemistry and measure progress.
- Nutrition therapy through supplements and education to optimize health and cognitive performance.
- At-home training includes exercises, therapies, and personalized strategies for each individual.
Frequently Asked Questions about Brain Injury Treatment
A Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) is a serious medical condition that occurs when someone suffers a violent blow, bump or jolt to the head.
Falls, sports injuries, and motor vehicle accidents are three of the most frequent causes of TBI. TBI can also be caused by anoxic brain injury, which occurs when the brain is deprived of oxygen. Anoxic brain injury can be caused by drowning, near-drowning, carbon monoxide poisoning, and drug overdoses.
Unfortunately, it is. TBI is a leading cause of disability and death in the United States. Each year, approximately 1.7 million people suffer a TBI in the U.S., and 52,000 of those people die as a result of their injuries.
Our physicians practice functional neurology, which is based on the understanding that the nervous system controls all functions of the body. Therefore, by stimulating and/or inhibiting specific areas of the nervous system, functional neurologists can improve a variety of neurological conditions, including TBI-related issues.
If you or someone you love has experienced a TBI, it's important you seek medical advice from a qualified health care provider like APEX Brain Centers. The easiest first step is to schedule a free consultation with one of our board-certified physicians who will evaluate your condition, answer your questions, and provide care recommendations.
