Stroke Rehabilitation

Doctors often tell their patients, “Once you have a stroke, chances are your life will never be the same again.” That can be devastating news for the patient and their family. Rehabilitation after a significant injury to the brain, like that caused from a stroke, is extremely important.

Many therapies leave patients with only minimal recovery and they’re left on their own to deal with their daily tasks. But now there’s something that can be done. With brain-based therapy, many people have an opportunity to experience a dramatic recovery!

Types of Strokes

There are two types of strokes: hemorrhagic and ischemic. Regardless of the type, the damage is similar. The brain tissue is destroyed or severely impaired and functions must be taken over by adjacent areas of the brain if the patient expects to regain lost function. Through a process called neuroplasticity it has been found, by way of neuroscience research, that brain cells can recover following injury. Often this can happen to a full extent, as in learning a task for the first time.


Strategies

As chiropractic neurologists, we are trained in functional neurology. Functional neurology allows us to pinpoint specific areas of your brain at or near areas of damaged tissue to stimulate via our unique methods. By stimulating these adjacent areas and areas “downstream” from the damaged or destroyed tissue, many times we are able to help people recover in amazing fashion.


Recovery & Chiropractic Neurology

The key to recovery is knowing exactly what tissue is damaged and more importantly what specific therapies would be most effective in accessing that specific area of the brain. An in-depth neurological examination is necessary to ascertain the exact location with pinpoint precision accuracy and then focus our therapies like a laser on the exact area of the brain that needs to be rehabbed. This is imperative, in order to bring about functional results for the patient.

Why People Choose CIN

At Colorado Integrative Neurology, we use unique methods called brain-based therapies, created by chiropractic neurologists, to restore lost function, regain mobility, re-establish normal walking and movement patterns of limbs, increase mental and cognitive function and improve bowel and bladder irregularities. Also, exercise to stimulate specific nerve receptors that control swallowing, speech and hearing can be rehabilitated, if the nervous tissue is still viable and shows responsiveness. Only through proper neurological exams in these areas can the nervous system be tested to see if they are still functional and capable of recovering. In addition to all the above, we will evaluate your metabolic system for energy problems, nutrient loss and other processes to insure a maximal recovery.

The doctors at Colorado Integrative Neurology specialize in a holistic therapies for a variety of neurological and musculoskeletal conditions, including patients who suffer from concussions, vertigo, chronic pain, headaches and more. Meet our team and request an appointment with CIN today.
