Concussion Treatment: Advances in Brain Rehabilitation
The delay in obtaining a proper diagnosis and treatment following a brain injury or neurological disorder can have profound consequences to a person's life. From persistent headaches, dizziness and visual tracking issues to changes in one's mood, behavior and cognition--these symptoms often limit one's existence to remaining at home or avoiding activities due to the frequent triggers that occur in everyday life.
Being able to differentiate where individual symptoms are coming from and identifying which pathways in the brain have been injured with diagnostic testing is an essential step toward receiving care that can selectively target, strengthen and restore your health.
Customized Physical and Neurological Rehabilitation
Chiropractic neurology uses a highly intensive regimen of physical and neurological rehabilitation combined with neuro-stimulation techniques that can selectively target, strengthen and promote neuroplasticity in the impaired areas of the brain and nervous system due to injury or disease.
Known as “neural networks”, the brain works on patterns of electrical activity that communicate and synchronize multiple regions throughout the brain in order to perform physical and mental tasks. With brain injuries, neuronal cells and neural networks become damaged, out of sync, can fire erratically, and are often hyper-sensitive and prone to fatigue.
Our unique approach provides a non-invasive method to re-synchronize brain activity with sensory input combined with physical movement patterns and visual exercises in order to retrain your brain’s functional abilities. The precise application of nerve stimulation protocols and therapeutic exercises are tailored specifically to your needs and desired goals.
Throughout the rehabilitation process we repeat our diagnostic testing to measure your results and to modify the treatment plan to continue advancing your progress.
In situations when we are not able to restore function to the damaged regions, we focus on retraining the healthy regions to take over lost functional abilities or to assist with more appropriate adaptive strategies that can improve your physical and cognitive functions.
Going Beyond Brain Injury
The health of your brain and it’s ability to heal is dependent upon the optimal function of your body, its organ systems and physiology. So, we don’t assume that you are only suffering from a brain injury. We perform a comprehensive history, examination and laboratory testing to evaluate your entire health status. This involves measuring blood sugar levels and complete blood count, obtaining a metabolic panel and cardiovascular risk profile, monitoring inflammatory markers, testing hormones and screening for possible infections that can complicate one’s ability to heal.
With this additional information we are able to recommend specific nutritional and natural medicine approaches that can further support your ability to recover and heal. Dr. Chung also works with a team of integrative medicine specialists that can collaborate in providing the best care available once we have identified your specific needs.
