Success Story - Upon a recent follow-up evaluation, a young male writer from #NYC reported to us that he had watched a YouTube video for the first time in 2.5 years without feeling 'wasted' for several days as he normally would since his head injury. It is not uncommon for those with #concussion and #TBI to experience persistent eye movement and visual integration challenges; sometimes years after the initial injury. Inability to read, use computers, socialize, drive, and more are typical complaints from those affected. As a published author, the ability to use a computer once again has allowed him to begin the process of rebuilding his career and continue doing what he loves. In most cases, eye movement dysfunction, if properly assessed, can be rehabilitated for positive outcomes such as this.

"In nature, rewards usually come only with time and effort. Addictive drugs and behaviors provide a shortcut, flooding the brain with dopamine and other neurotransmitters. Our brains do not have an easy way to withstand the onslaught..." This applies to any substance or activity that the brain deems pleasurable at first, which can often lead to loss of control over its use in a short period of time (e.g. the reason we are compelled to check our handheld devices 50-150 times per day!) http://ow.ly/Ye2c30hw9eD

Whether reflecting on the happenings of the past year, or looking forward to what is in store for #2018 and beyond; it is important to hold close the idea that life is a constantly changing and evolving work in progress. However one defines #success... how we respond to and deal with the many roadblocks. potholes, detours and closed roads/exits in our life largely determines our degree of #happiness, success, and contentment in life. We wish you all much happiness, #joy, and #prosperity in 2018; as well as the ability to effectively navigate life's construction zones when you come across them. #HappyNewYear! #Avl #Asheville #NC #BrainTraining #FunctionalNeurology #ChiropracticNeurology #ApexBrainCenters #TBI #Concussion #ADHD #OCD #Addiction #Recovery

Rarely is a body system unaffected by #brain injury. Vestibular, cardiovascular, musculoskeletal, cognitive/emotional, endocrine, gastrointestinal, etc. are all impacted by #TBI. Brainstem neuromodulation (e.g. vagus nerve stimulation) can be a life-saver for many with TBI. There are many methods of stimulating the vagus nerve, from the high tech electrical stimulation as discussed in this article, to simple things such as gargling, humming and cold showers!

With an increasing number of Americans experiencing mental distress, and access to quality care becoming more difficult for so many; basic, and powerful, quality of life factors can likely make the difference in the degree of distress and negative outcomes experienced (i.e. proper #nutrition, #exercise, #sleep, technology reduction, #stress management, etc.). Easier said than done, although a journey of 1000 miles starts with just a single step! http://ow.ly/5KlW30hkpli #anxiety #depression #addiction

An FAA program boasts extreme success rates regarding sobriety and pilots returning to work. There is one key element noted, and one that cannot be understated, as being the reason for success... Leverage. When the fear of losing the very thing that defines who they are becomes greater than the desire to use, successful #recovery can begin! http://ow.ly/YFZe30h80s8 #addiction #alcoholism #apexbraincenters #asheville #NC #braintraining #functionalneurology
