Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) Therapy

Hills Neuroscience specializes in Neurotherapy, which may assist in your recovery from mild traumatic brain injury. TBI can make basic everyday functioning challenging since patients struggle with memory loss, pain, concentration, movement problems, and vision and hearing difficulties. Our integrative approach to TBI therapy aims to help patients increase brain and body function, so they can get back to enjoying life again.

What Is Traumatic Brain Injury?

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a disruption to the normal function of the brain caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head, or a penetrating head injury. TBI may cause both cognitive and emotional issues in patients. It is reported that about 33% of non-sports-related mild TBI cases and 10% of sports-related mild TBI cases turn into post-concussion syndrome (PCS), which is when symptoms persist beyond the normal recovery period for mild TBI. Without intervention, symptoms from even mild injuries can last for years.

Symptoms of TBI may include:

  • Cognitive problems and memory loss
  • Impaired movement
  • Changes to vision or hearing
  • Personality changes or depression

Symptoms of Post-Concussive Syndrome may include:

  • Headache
  • Dizziness
  • Fatigue
  • Irritability and anger
  • Insomnia
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Memory difficulties
  • Anxiety or depression
  • Poor balance
  • Blurred and double vision
  • Sensitivity to noise and light

How We Treat TBI

We incorporate a combination of therapies to treat TBI, focusing on neurotherapy and biofeedback, enhanced with group therapies.

Common Brain Patterns

  • Decreased faster brainwave frequency (beta) involved in thinking and problem-solving
  • Increased slow wave frequency (delta), decreased cognitive processing abilities and learning problems
  • Slow frequency in the pre-frontal cortex may contribute to depression and decreased executive functioning, including planning, decision making, and impulse control (Thatcher, 2009)
  • Relationships between brainwave frequencies can become disrupted
  • Specific symptoms are correlating with neuronal network abnormalities
