Sometimes life throws us a curve ball. We’ve all experienced it! Brock Peterson has recently had to deal with quite a curve ball after a freak accident in July rendered him paralyzed from the chest down.
After leaving the hospital (including 17 days in ICU) Brock immediately attended the Shepherd Center in Atlanta to help him on his road to recovery. Upon return to Hampton Roads, he continues to work hard to get “back to normal”.
Brock is currently attending therapy at ODU and now receiving hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) here at Hampton Roads Hyperbaric in Norfolk. He is now starting to see an increase in both strength and mobility. He has just started to move his finger and can now raise his arms over his head. HBOT plays a key role in accelerating recovery by enabling 100% healing oxygen to damaged cells, increasing stem cell mobility and decreasing inflammation.
Brock is truly an inspiration. His positive attitude cannot be overlooked, coupled with his determination and dedication, doctors are saying now that a full recovery is possible.
Stay tuned as we post more as Brock continues on his road to recovery.
We are excited to now offer Neurotherapy as part of the suite of services you can find at Hampton Roads Hyperbaric
What is Neurotherapy
Neurotherapy consists of first performing a Quantitative Electroencephalography (QEEG) using a cranial cap with 19 nodes to detect and document the signaling in the brain. The data recorded is then compared to a normative database and analyzed. A comprehensive report is created and from there a personalized neurotherapy protocol is developed. That protocol can consist of multiple versions of talk therapy, neurofeedback, biofeedback and pulsed electromagnetic field therapy.
How it Works?
The human brain is neuroplastic and changeable, which means it will respond to conditioning. Neurotherapy helps patients learn how to self-regulate through a series of neurofeedback and biofeedback sessions. It is very similar to the idea of physical conditioning, where a person’s body grows healthier and stronger with repeated exercise. Neurotherapy teaches a person to produce more optimal signaling patterns using positive reinforcement. We can actually train the brain to function more efficiently by helping normalize and manage neural activity that is out of balance.
What can Neurotherapy help with?
Neurotherapy can help with a wide variety of cognitive, physiological and psychological impairments, including:
Mild Traumatic Brain Injury
Autism Disorder Spectrum (ASD)
If you are or anyone you know is experiencing any of the above, we may be able to help. Give us a call at 757-452-3934 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
