The information provided in this section is not meant to replace your medical doctor’s recommendations. Many people with concussions or brain trauma haven’t gotten the answers they are looking for so this site is meant to supplement what’s been given to you. This is provided from a TBI survivor who has had to “learn the hard way”. There will be suggestions as to what has worked, what has worked for others and what research shows works to help in your recovery.
Because I am not a doctor, I will not be discussing ANY forms of medical treatment or prescription medications. I come from a place of functional therapy and healing, that being a noninvasive and gentle approach to supporting the body to do what it does naturally….. HEAL. My goal is to provide you with some tools to put in your toolbox for days you may need them. Education is a powerful thing and the more you know, the better equipped you can be to get through the rough days.
Wishing you all wellness and a speedy recovery!
First thing to know is that every head injury is VERY unique and a “one size fits all” approach doesn’t work.
How many concussions have you had? What part of the skull took the impact? What symptoms are you noticing? What changes have happened in your life since? What accommodations do you need to make in your life to help you while you heal? Do you have a team of people helping you reach your healing goal? Well will dive into these questions and more.
There are similarities in what can help your brain recuperate but you have a part in speeding that process along, or slowing it down.
The pieces of the puzzle may not make sense right now but trust the process. Every piece does make an impact on your recovery towards an optimal brain.
It doesn’t matter what level of injury you’ve had, there’s something here for every level. Our brains take “hits” every day just by the environment alone. Let’s get started by understanding the brain to begin with!
