Acquired Brain Injury

It is common in auto accidents, sports injuries, slips and falls or even more traumatic accidents for bodily injury to make a head injury seem so minor that neither doctor nor patient recognize it has occurred. A concussion is not always caused by an apparent direct force blow or jolt to the head but be caused simply by a rapid change in direction such as an acceleration/deceleration force that is multi focal causing neuron axonal damage. These otherwise innocuous conditions can change the way your brain normally works and more importantly concussion recovery times can vary greatly.

Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI) result in permanent neurobiological damage that can produce lifelong deficits. A Moderate Severity TBI increases Mortality rates by 7 years and increases Risks of Mortality by 34x. 

Generally, individuals who sustain a concussion or mild TBI are back to normal within three months or less. But others, suffer from long-term problems with anxiety, fatigue, focus, memory, stress and much more. Signs and symptoms of a mild traumatic brain injury, or concussion, can emerge immediately following the injury, or may not appear for days or even weeks afterward.

Performance Research Sciences Delivers the Future in NeuroScience and Technology for TBI Recovery

                                                                                                Recent studies have shown that more than 2.4 million ER visits, hospitalizations and deaths                                                                                                         are attributable to Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) annually in the United States, with 5.3 million                                                                                                     individuals suffering from the after effects of TBI at any given time. TBI is responsible 12% of                                                                                                      hospitalizations, costing the US 76 billion dollars every year. Afflicted individuals                                                                                                                            typically require 5-10 years of intensive therapy, often without measurable and                                                                                                                              quantifiable results. Traumatic brain injury (TBI), also known as acquired brain injury or simply,                                                                                                  head injury, occurs when a sudden trauma causes damage to the brain. This damage can be                                                                                                         focal (confined to one area of the brain) or diffuse (involving more than one area of the                                                                                                                brain). Concussion is the most common type of TBI. Technically, a concussion is a short loss                                                                                                          of consciousness or temporal blackout where the patient experiences a dazed and confused                                                                                                        state of consciousness in response to a head injury, but in common language the term has                                                                                                          come to mean any minor injury to the head or brain. Historically, the belief was that there                                                                                                          were no long term after effects on overall brain function from such injuries, but new                                                                                                                      research has shown that concussions may result in long-term alterations of higher brain functions. To date, no effective drug therapy has been found to improve outcomes in TBI. However, recent developments in neuroscience and technology, specifically Advanced Simulation Therapy has been shown to make significant improvements in cerebral edema and perfusion, neuronal proliferation, neurogenesis, synaptogenesis, neural network connectivity, cognitive performance and behavior deficits as well as overall quality of life measures and return to work competencies.

Excitotoxicity Following Traumatic Brain Injury 

Turn Key Solution for Traumatic Brain Injury Recovery, Rehabilitation and Peak Performance

Turn Key Solution for Traumatic Brain Injury Recovery, Rehabilitation and Peak Performance

The regulating excitatory neurotransmitter and

amino acid in the brain is glutamate. When the

brain experiences traumatic injury, a shift in

ionic imbalance in the cerebral tissue occurs,

followed by reduced blood flow and energy store

depletion, depolarizing the cell membrane.

Depolarization results in an excitotoxic cascade

which engages glutamate and other excitatory

amino acids (EAA), releasing supra-physiological

concentrations of excitatory amino acids into the

synapse. These supra-physiological levels of

excitatory amino acids overstimulate the

N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor. Ionic

imbalance develops, with Na+ and Ca2+ influx

and K+ efflux which facilitates further

depolarization, overwhelming Mg2+ ability to

block NMDA receptors. The re-uptake of

glutamate is decreased which results in a further increase in concentration levels. Ionic imbalance further perpetuates a brain injury when increased concentrations of Ca2+ result in neuronal death and the efflux of K+ induces swelling in the brain. Overall, increases in normal levels of excitatory neurotransmitters leads to death of the neurons surrounding the original injury site. The relationship between elevated levels of excitatory amino acids and brain injury is dependent on the severity of the traumatic brain injury sustained. Sustained elevated levels of excitatory amino acids in the cerebrospinal fluid have been confirmed in patients with severe traumatic brain injuries for at least 7 days following the initial injury. Subsequently, elevated levels of excitatory amino acids have been found as far as 6 months post injury in some patients with severe traumatic brain injuries.

NeuroHealth Solutions has an interdisciplinary team of brain injury specialists with a concentration in human head injury including pathology and histology involving Blunt Force Trauma, Motor Vehicle Collisions, Occupational Incidents, Sports Related Trauma, Sudden Infant Death Syndrome and Shaken Baby Syndrome. To date, justification for treatment of head injury has been neglected. The World Health Organization defines TBI as a chronic disease process having one or more of the following characteristics: it is permanent, caused by non-reversible pathological alterations, requiring special training for the individual affected, and may require a long period of observation, supervision, or care. Brain injury reduces life expectancy and increases long-term mortality. Brain injury is associated with increased incidences of seizures, sleep disorders, neurodegenerative diseases, as well as non-neurological disorders including sexual dysfunction, bladder and bowel incontinence, and systemic metabolic dysregulation that may arise and persist for months to years post-injury. Advanced Simulation Therapy an Integrative NeurOptimization Training Approach offers a solution to remediate mild to severe Concussion and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). For human head injuries resulting from car collisions, the threshold average velocity for the onset of severe injuries is estimated to be 6.7 meters per second (or 15 miles/hr). These forces are easily reproduced in high-speed collisions that can occur in sports such as football, soccer, and hockey.
