How We Help Traumatic Brain Injuries and Concussions:
Brain trauma, concussions, and injuries can range from mild and short term to severity that can last for years. Mild traumatic brain injury may affect your brain cells temporarily. More serious traumatic brain injury can result in bruising, torn tissues, bleeding and other physical damage to the brain. These injuries can result in long-term complications impacting daily life, brain health, and overall wellbeing.
Many people experience brain trauma in the form of concussions from car accidents, falling, and sports-related injuries. Typically, a concussion is considered a “mild” type of traumatic brain injury—or TBI—caused by a blow to the head or body that causes the brain to be jarred around inside the skull. This sudden movement can cause brain damage that, despite being called “mild,” can actually be quite serious, especially when there are repeated “mild” traumas over time.
Here at Serenity Zone, we take a comprehensive approach to your brain health and wellbeing. When you have suffered a trauma, how your brain functions is compromised. Brainwaves change frequencies based on neural activity within the brain. These brainwave frequencies determine your state of mind, mood, and motivation. When the frequencies are moving very slowly, you feel relaxed and drowsy. When they move slightly faster, you feel mindful and content. When these frequencies move a little faster, you feel sharp, focused, and alert. When they move really fast, you feel energized, rejuvenated, and refreshed.
If your brain is out of balance and your brainwaves are not firing properly, you will begin to feel symptoms. The longer they persist, the greater the imbalance. Thanks to neuroplasticity, your brain is able to learn and respond to new stimuli that can aid in creating new neural pathways. Neurofeedback is the neurotherapy that has been used since the 1960’s and is FDA approved as a natural brain training solution that aids in optimizing brainwave function and helps to create new neural pathways.
To determine how to help your brain heal from concussions or trauma, we use the most evidence based clinical assessment and neuroimaging technology (QEEG) to map the brain. This allows us to discover how each individual’s brain is responding to determine if any imbalance or dysregulation exists.
Once we determine if and where the affected areas are, we create a corrective plan of care using the most cutting-edge neurotherapies and brain training tools that target the specific imbalances to optimize the exact networks and pathways of the brain so the person can improve their focus, memory, mood, motivation, and thinking patterns.
