Based on the results of your child’s individualized assessment, we create a program tailored specifically to your child’s unique needs. Each child’s program includes sensory-motor training and cognitive activity plans coupled with nutritional testing and easy-to-follow dietary guidelines.
This unique integrated approach is key to what makes us so effective. The carefully structured program elements help establish proper brain and body function leading to a reduction or elimination of negative symptoms and behaviors, and improves the ability to learn, academically, socially and emotionally.
Concussion is a brain injury defined by the Concussion in Sport Group as “a complex pathophysiological process affecting the brain, induced by biomechanical forces” and resulting “in the rapid onset of short-lived impairment of neurological function that resolves spontaneously”. Concussion may result from a direct impact to the head, neck or face, or to somewhere else on the body that transmits an impulsive force to the hear (head). Loss of consciousness is not a common feature of most concussions. The acute clinical symptoms of concussion represent a functional rather than a structural brain injury.
Our approach to chronic pain begins with a thorough history and neurological exam. We then create a program drawing from elements of medicine, physical (physio-) therapy, psychology, complementary and alternative approaches and most of all, clinical neuroscience. For this reason, some of the elements of the Take Root approach may be familiar to you while others will be quite different. You will also likely notice the use of several new technologies that are aimed at analyzing your brain and nervous system, movement and physiology. The use of modern technologies allows our doctors to develop unique treatment approaches based on sensitive measures of function.
Our doctors are highly trained to confidently deal with rehabilitation of each region of the body in a diverse patient population, ranging from elite, high-performance individuals to highly unstable, complex patients.
