TBI Rehab

Therapy to help your brain heal.

If you have been diagnosed by your medical provider with a traumatic brain injury (TBI), otherwise known as a concussion, it can be very frustrating to feel like nothing is being done to relieve symptoms like headaches, dizziness, nausea, insomnia, irritability, or the numerous other problems this condition can cause. 

It is important to remember that the symptoms of most brain injuries can be improved with specific rehabilitation, just like injuries to muscles or joints. Your brain is capable of healing, and even if you’re not able to regain 100% of the function you had before your injury, significant progress is possible with most patients we see in our facilities. 

This video describes some of the therapies that we offer in our TBI rehab programs at Ethos Health Group and Florida Spine and Injury.


Specialized TBI treatment

Alpha Stim

 

This technology uses small clips on the earlobes to increase alpha waves to the brain. These are the brain waves that are produced in deep thought and restful states. Alpha stim has been shown to be very effective with symptoms of brain injury as well as anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder.

Help after Traumatic Brain Injury

Vagus Nerve Stimulation

 

The vagus nerve is stimulated with a gentle microcurrent to a part of the ear called the tragus. Stimulating this nerve is particularly beneficial with headaches, as well as other TBI symptoms.

treatment options for a traumatic brain injury

Neurofeedback


This amazing therapy is designed to retrain or reorganize brain waves to help facilitate healing by utilizing visual or auditory stimuli. The treatment works by gently training your brain waves to function at their best.

Exercise with oxygen for TBI treatment

Exercise with Oxygen


Concentrated oxygen is administered while engaging in light aerobic exercise or other activity. By increasing the levels of oxygen to the brain, studies have found that this treatment can be beneficial for recovery from TBI.

Sensory Motor Integration


A common problem associated with TBI is a “disconnect” between the brain and the rest of the body. Sensory-motor integration utilizes devices that light up in different colors and patterns to help train the brain to visually process information and react more efficiently.

Rehab options for traumatic brain injury patients

Oculomotor Rehabilitation


When the brain has been injured, it often affects how the eyes work, and this is why dizziness, nausea, blurred/double vision, and balance problems can occur. Oculomotor exercises help to “reconnect” the eye movements to the brain and help with these symptoms.

Brain exercises for people with brain injuries

Cognitive Rehabilitation

 

The brain can be exercised like a muscle, and after a brain injury, this becomes even more important. We utilize a computerized “brain exercise” software that is both challenging and fun while helping to improve memory, verbal recall, and other areas often affected by TBI.

heart rate treatment for people with a TBI

Heart Rate Variability Biofeedback

 

Heart rate variability (HRV) is a measure of how well your autonomic nervous system responds to stress, and this is often altered following brain injury. HRV biofeedback is a therapy during which patients are connected to a sensory on your finger that is connected to a computer program that teaches you over time to control your heart rate variability. This therapy is particularly beneficial for patients experiencing high levels of stress, difficulty sleeping, anxiety, and other symptoms that occur when the autonomic nervous system is not functioning optimally.

Infrared Photobiomodulation

 

Low-level infrared light stimulates blood flow to the outer portions of the brain and can help accelerate brain healing. This safe and gentle therapy can be very effective at helping get your brain back on the road to recovery, as studies have demonstrated increased blood flow can be therapeutic for the brain.
