Brain Injury 

What is a brain Injury?

There are 2 types of brain injury:

  • Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)– Caused by an external force such as a blow to the head. This causes damage to the skull or the brain can move around inside the skull, causing damage.
  • Acquired Brain Injury (ABI)- Non traumatic injury that causes damage to the brain by internal factors such as the lack of oxygen to the brain, exposure of toxins to the brain, infections, pressure from tumours etc

How Does Neurotherapy Treatment Work?

Neurotherapy Process

We hold a brief conversation with you about what problems you struggle with and how you need help

We capture your personal details, discuss the costs and timings and arrange an appointment

During your first appointment, you share your goals with us and we conduct a physical assessment

We work with you to build a personalised treatment plan, during a scheduled period of intervention

We may prescribe some exercises to help you to address weakness, move more efficiently and improve your quality of life

We regularly review your progress and adjust your goals as you make improvements
