In recent years, traumatic brain injuries, such as concussions, have become a topic of interest to both the public and healthcare industry. While most of the focus has been on prevention, the conventional approaches to treatment are inadequate and have not advanced much since the 20th century. Integrative medicine offers a variety of natural approaches to healing the injured brain.
In this lecture, Dr. Breiner will present how in-office diagnostics such as EEG imaging, balance testing, and neurocognitive testing can give the clinician better tools for assessing brain injury and help track how the patient is healing. Beyond the “rest and wait” approach, integrative physicians will learn how natural healing modalities such as transcranial pulsed electromagnetic and electrical stimulation, neurofeedback, hyperbaric oxygen therapy, altitude contrast training, platelet rich plasma, stem cells, and photo-biomodulation can help in healing brain injuries.
- Participants will be able to explain the different types of Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI’s), and the standard diagnostic tests and treatments.
- Participants will be able to explain EEG Imaging, balance testing, and computer neurocognitive testing and how they can be used in helping identify TBI’s.
- Participants will be able to discuss Integrative Neurotherapeutic approaches to treating TBI’s such as – Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy, Neurofeedback, Transcranial Electrical and Magnetic Stimulation, Altitude Contrast Training, PRP, and more.
