Treatments for Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

Helping patients with lingering, life-altering symptoms from strokes, concussions, seizures, and other brain changes, with treatments that address and repair the root cause.

We offer cutting-edge treatments and care for the symptoms of TBI, anxiety, depression, stress and more. We understand that living with a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) can be overwhelming and has a profound impact on many aspects of daily life. No two individuals are the same; therefore, patients exposed to similar injuries will respond differently and require different interventions.  ou are not alone in this journey.

 

If you’ve been told that there’s no hope for improvement, give us a call and speak to a new patient advocate to determine if we may be able to help.

Dual Stellate Ganglion Block (DSGB) 

The Dual Stellate Ganglion Block is an innovative treatment that utilizes two strategically placed injections on one side of your neck that target your body’s stress response system – the sympathetic nervous system. The Dual Stellate Ganglion Block (DSGB) is a promising biological intervention addressing an array of debilitating symptoms tied to an overactive sympathetic nervous system triggered by trauma or sustained stress. 

Hormone Optimization

Chronic stress causes alterations in brain function, leading to anxiety and depressive disorders affecting the hippocampus, amygdala, and prefrontal cortex. When testosterone and other hormones are imbalanced, the brain minds the gap with cortisol, leading to elevated heart rate and high blood pressure. 
 
By re-introducing hormone balance, symptoms often are relieved and an improved quality of wellness occurs.

BrainTap

BrainTap helps resynchronize your brain waves to their proper state. This leads to more energy and clarity during the day, and better, deeper rejuvenation sleep at night.
Because BrainTap can also help your brain shift to a meditative, open-minded, and relaxed state where the division between conscious and subconscious isn't as definitive, BrainTap can also be used therapeutically to help address various thought patterns and mental habits.

Common Symptoms from Traumatic Brain Injury

Mild brain trauma, which accounts for about 75% of brain injury cases, may not be considered severe, but it is by no means benign. Studies have shown that up to one in five individuals who have sustained a mild head injury may develop mental health conditions, such as major depressive disorder, personality changes, and behavioral abnormalities.

TBI, PTSD and Veterans

According to the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association and the Department of Defense, Traumatic brain injury (TBI) and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) are frequently comorbid in veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. 

 

The Department of Defense (DOD) defines the following levels of severity (Defense Health Agency, 2019): 

Mild

TBI

_
Loss of consciousness for up to 30 minutes; or confused or disoriented state lasting less than 24 hours; or memory loss lasting less than 24 hours. Excludes penetrating TBI. If obtained, computed tomography (CT) scan results are normal.

Moderate

TBI

_
Loss of consciousness for more than 30 minutes, but less than 24 hours; or confused or disoriented state lasting more than 24 hours; or memory loss lasting more than 24 hours but less than 7 days; or meets criteria for concussion/mild TBI but with an abnormal CT. 

Severe

TBI

_
Loss of consciousness for more than 24 hours; or confused or disoriented state lasting more than 24 hours; or memory loss lasting more than seven days. Excludes penetrating TBI. A structural brain imaging study may be normal but usually is abnormal.

Penetrating

TBI

_
Open head injury; scalp, skull, and dura mater (outer layer of meninges) are penetrated. Caused by high-velocity projectiles, objects of lower velocity such as knives, or bone fragments from a skull fracture that is driven into the brain
