Oak Brook IL Traumatic Brain Injury/Concussion Specialist
In some cases, traumatic brain injury involves damage to the brain’s white matter tracts, which are responsible for sending signals across the cortex for processing. This damage may also affect the brain’s frequencies, which are important for proper sleep-wake cycles, mood regulation, and cognitive functioning. Traditional cognitive rehabilitation approaches are very important to try and help the TBI patient regain some functionality. Neuropsychological testing and brain mapping can be extraordinarily helpful in understanding the impact of the injury on brain connectivity and frequency patterns, and to help in the formulation of a therapeutic plan. The increased awareness of concussion has also lead to an expanded understanding of the brain effects of milder head trauma and treatments that can be helpful if a patient is not fully recovering over time.
