If you (or a loved one) have suffered from a stroke, you need to consider enhancing your recovery with the cutting-edge therapies available at the NeuroEdge Brain Performance Center. We have been treating patients who have had brain injuries, such as strokes, TBI’s, concussions, cerebral palsy, and anoxic brain injuries for over 15 years.
When a stroke occurs, some areas of the brain may be damaged; however, some areas are in a shock-like state or a state of “low” activity where the neurons are just idling. These areas of idling neurons are known as the “recoverable brain.” This “recoverable brain” can be miraculously reawakened with Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy.
While we normally breathe oxygen at a concentration of 21%, a patient in a hyperbaric oxygen chamber breaths 100% pure oxygen under pressure. This pressure allows for oxygen to dissolve in the blood stream, and diffuse into tissues such as lymph, and cerebrospinal fluids at concentrations not allowed under normal atmospheric conditions. In fact, concentrations in the tissues may be increased by more than 10 percent during a hyperbaric oxygen session.
Dr. Adam Breiner was one of the first practitioners in the country to combine the powerful effects of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy and Neurofeedback, and has helped lead the way for other clinics to do the same. Once the areas of “low” activity in the brain have been “reawakened” by the use of oxygen under pressure, it is time to “retrain the brain.” At our health center, we utilize numerous neurotherapies to retrain the brain. We also aid in the recovery of the injured brain through use of brain-targeted nutraceuticals, cranial sacral therapy, intranasal activated PRP, and soon will offer autologous stem cell therapy. Many other therapies such as physical therapy, speech therapy and/or occupational therapy are valuable tools to help retrain the brain and often these practitioners find our patients obtain remarkable recovery in these adjunctive therapies.
