You can change your Brain!
Updated: May 26
There are many ways people choose to deal with issues that affect their brain health especially after a concussion / brain injury. Recognizing the problem and the willingness to work toward a solution is key to success. We all wish there was one simple solution but the reality is the brain is highly complex and everyone has a unique upbringing and genetic biology! Having specific goals and strategies to help meet them can make all the difference, whether it’s changing a habit, regaining a skill, becoming more organized, reducing anxiety or seeking the right care. Sometimes the brain gets out of sync because of a physical injury, getting stuck in high amounts of stress over a prolonged period of time, or having suffered trauma, addictions, or other challenges. For some of us it is a combination of all the above. The good news is, no matter how out of sorts your brain becomes, you have a choice to make it better and your brain can change thanks to neuroplasticity. Learning to become self-aware of the signs and symptoms of a concussion / brain injury is vital in taking positive steps to overcome the symptoms. Sometimes to avoid our self-awareness, we self-medicate with overworking, legal or illegal drugs, alcohol, sex, or other ways to avoid dealing with our pain or symptoms. While this may seem like a short-term fix, these go-to attempts to fix the problem can actually add to our problems because they don’t get to the root. Even prescription drugs can sometimes just mask the underlying problem. There are many modalities that can be helpful in identifying and fixing the root causes of brain function, from Chiropractic, Counseling, Acupuncture, Massage therapy, Vision therapy, Brain Integration Therapy, Hypnosis, Prayer/Meditation, Neurofeedback and many more!
