Brain Injury (Acquired or Traumatic)
Brain Injury (Acquired or Traumatic) are disabling conditions that affects 1.9% of Australians, making it the highest in Western countries. Causes of BI includes head trauma, hypoxia, infection, tumor, substance abuse, degenerative neurological disease and stroke. This can cause physical, cognitive, psychosocial, and sensory impairments, that reduces the quality of life.
BI effects poor communication in neural activity in the brains of individuals, and as such, MeRT℠ begins by mapping your brain activity and identifying areas that may not be communicating effectively. With personalized protocols and an understanding that every individual is different, parts of the brain not communicating effectively are specifically nurtured to strengthen their functionality and recovery.
By synchronizing the brain or neural activity communication, individuals living with BI can experience improvement in sleep quality and duration, concentration and focus, mood and motivation, self-confidence and self-esteem, sociability and clarity of thoughts*.
