Why don’t some patients with traumatic brain injury get full recovery from their concussion?

Children (and adults) with traumatic brain injury often do not always receive adequate treatment for their symptoms; this is in part due to the fact that we do not have nationally accepted protocols for long-term treatment for patients with concussion. Most patients just get a lot of testing.
 
At our NeuroGrow brain center we do offer a 12-week “Concussion Recovery Program” and more than 80% of our patients gain remarkable improvements in their symptoms.

Should teens use Marijuana?

Teens who smoke pot appear to have poor memory and cognitive function; but 72 hours after they stop, their memory performance returns to average range.

So Marijuana seems to be bad for teens’ memory function, but it is unlikely to cause long-term damage. 

I favor not using it as we still don’t know the full extent of who may be more susceptible to long term consequences.

Compassionate Care at Neurogrow

At NeuroGrow Brain Fitness Center, we are passionate about change – whether that be improving your mental energy, eating healthier food for your brain, becoming more physically active, or finding more reasons to smile. We see amazing results in our patients everyday and feel proud of our “brain fitness program.”

Most people are unaware of the fact that they can grow the part of their brain for memory, called the hippocampus, and that by doing this they will prevent cognitive decline with aging. Many of them struggle with having memory lapses and feel helpless, because they don’t know that they have the power to create change within themselves. They don’t know where to turn, and that’s where we come in.

At NeuroGrow, we act as a support system of brain trainers who work to help patients overcome the challenges they face and be their best selves. We assess our patients using techniques such as cognitive evaluations, brain mapping, and cardiopulmonary exercise tests. We treat them with brain coaching, neurofeedback, and counseling using the best food and exercise regimens for optimal brain health. We are open everyday of the week from 8:00 am to 8:00 pm, as well as Saturdays and Sundays, in order to give our patients as much opportunity as possible to participate in our program. 

Our patients are wonderful and dedicated to getting better – they believe in us, and we believe in them. If you are struggling with cognitive issues and want to make a change, we would love to be a part of your journey to better health.
