Posturomed®: Restore Cognitive Function after Injury…
Are you experiencing problems with balance as a result of a concussion? Maybe you’ve suffered a traumatic brain injury (TBI) in recent years that has impaired your cognitive function? If so, we’re sorry to hear that. Recovering from such injuries can be arduous to say the least.
Sometimes traditional treatments (pain killers) are just a band-aid solution that don’t do anything to heal the root cause of symptoms. That’s why many people look towards alternative healthcare to recover from such injuries.
Thankfully, there are options out there for those who are struggling to get rid of symptoms as a result of a concussion or traumatic brain injury. One of the methods we use in tandem with other drug-free, non-invasive techniques at Revelation Health Chiropractic & Wellness in Calgary is a system called Posturomed®.
What is Posturomed®?
Posturomed® is widely used by physiotherapy clinics in Europe as a method of training and rehabilitation for the neuromuscular system. It consists of a platform where patients are asked to stand then perform various exercises such as juggling balls and standing on one foot while touching their nose with the opposite arm.
These are just a few examples of the exercises your healthcare practitioner may prescribe for you. The purpose, to help restore cognitive function by requiring your nervous and musculoskeletal system to work together, as stimulus sends input from the body to the brain.
It’s said that in order to restore lost function in your brain, you need a vast amount of new inputs to restore those “connections” between your muscles and nervous system. The more frequent, the better and more likely you are to recover from concussion / TBI symptoms.
Dr. John Battershill at Revelation Health frequently uses Posturomed® with his concussion patients. Here’s what he has to say about it:
A Word on Posturomed®…
The Posturomed® is a device that primarily activates the neurons in the joints which improves communication from the body to the brain, specifically the cerebellum. The cerebellum needs to be functioning properly so that we can experience good balance and have coordinated muscle movement. Without the brain doing these two functions, our quality of life would decrease significantly.
The Posturomed® activates stimulus into the cerebellum from the body. Then, the body is able to give the central nervous system (CNS) – the brain and spinal cord – better input which activates the internal self healing mechanism we have within our CNS.
Balance and communication from the brain to the body and back from the body to the brain is always a problem when somebody has a concussion, traumatic brain injury or any stage of dementia.
We use this system alongside Chiropractic adjustments to improve the neurological input from the body to the brain. That’s why Chiropractic works for acute pain injuries or episodes but also as an overall health, wellness, and preventative approach for improved functional health and longevity.
We have to move well to live well that starts in the brain. Without good balance, alignment and coordination, people will struggle with chronic pain and symptoms needlessly. Therefore, it certainly is super important that the body is communicating effectively back up into the brain and that is accomplished through effective and safe Chiropractic treatments using conservative treatment approaches.
Another technique we use to help stimulate those damaged neurons in the brain as a result of a concussion or TBI are eyelights. Just one of many we use to help people recover from brain injuries as fast as possible!
