TBIs (Traumatic Brain Injuries)

Video Script
Rick, how has oxford recovery center affected your life? “Oxford Recovery Center has restored the quality in my life, which had been gone for many years.” What was your life like before you came here? “Dark, withdrawn, not sociable, my family, even my wife, said that she didn’t like me for eight and a half years and now it’s totally different.” Rick, what happened that brought you here and how long ago was that? “I had my second back surgery in March of this year, and I finally got permission to drive I was driving through town and I had seen your sign for years but didn’t know what it meant. I thought I’d pull in and so I met with, I forget who it was, and they showed me your brochure and I looked at the one side and I thought ‘boy this could really help, perhaps speed up my recovery’ and then I looked at the other side and I noticed the TBI and the anxiety, depression and all the other things – PTSD – and all the other things that I had been dealing with for over eight years.” So wait let me get this straight, you came in here because you were concerned about your back, “correct”, but you had a whole another issue that you didn’t even know we could help. ”You’re right.” So how long ago did you have, I know you got shot, how long ago was that? “That was the December the 11th, 2007 at 1:30 in the afternoon.” So you were shot in the head, “right”, basically left for dead. “Correct.” And for all of these years nobody has given you any hope. “No, none whatsoever. The PTSD group, the private groups, the VA, psychiatric care, the brain life center, I didn’t feel like I got any results from that. My wife says that she saw a difference but I didn’t feel it and neither did anybody else. But this has just changed my life entirely. Everybody I know has just- they can’t believe that this is me, and it’s the old me.” Well I find it as one of my best Christmas gifts to see rick again, coming in, and telling me that he got his life back. So thank you for sharing and Merry Christmas. “Merry Christmas to you and everybody here, you’ve all been such wonderful people and I can’t say enough good about you, I really can’t. I’ll be a friend for life.” Merry Christmas. “Merry Christmas”

How does the Oxford Method help treat Traumatic Brain Injury?

There are no drugs on the market that can restore brain cells which have been damaged due to a traumatic injury. And while various kinds of therapies can be helpful, they cannot address the root cause of underlying brain imbalances.

So, what are the root causes of the imbalances created by a TBI? Recent advances in neuroscience reveal the root causes include a lack of blood flow and oxygen to the brain, lack of specific brain chemicals, and brainwave imbalances.

Let’s look at all these causes a little more in depth: Inside the brain, we have billions of brain cells, called neurons, sending electrical signals to each other, which we measure as brainwaves. These electrical signals cause the brain cells to release small chemicals called neurotransmitters, such as serotonin, dopamine, and adrenaline.

This vast network of brain cells is fed with oxygen and other nutrients by blood from over 100,000 miles of blood vessels inside the brain. For people who have suffered a TBI, there is often not enough of these blood vessels supplying oxygen and important nutrients.

This lack of nutrients begins to cause brainwave imbalances, as measured by an EEG scan. This, in turn, causes a downstream effect on brain chemicals called neurotransmitters, meaning that the brain cells start producing too little or too much of the chemicals they need. Neurotransmitters imbalances are further exacerbated by nutritional deficiencies in the person’s diet, especially of key vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and amino acids.

So, how do we start correcting a potentially multifaceted problem?

One of our most important tools at Oxford Recovery Center is called hyperbaric oxygen. This therapy actually causes new blood vessel growth in the brain and causes the brain to generate new stem cells which turn into new brain cells. 

Another important tool is neurofeedback therapy. We use neurofeedback to scan your brain’s electrical signals and reset them with non-invasive feedback in the form of sound.

And finally, neurotransmitter therapy and dietary coaching is used to correct nutritional deficiencies which are underlying the brain chemical imbalances—imbalances that we can find through laboratory testing we provide.

We strive to offer the most comprehensive research-based recovery program available for TBIs, and we are happy to serve you by taking as much time as we need to answer your specific questions.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Chamber

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT)

A specialized form of medical treatment administered by delivering 100% pure oxygen to the body through increased atmospheric pressure greater than 1.3 ATA. in an enclosed hard chamber.

Suit Therapy

Physical Therapy and Suit Therapy

The Oxford Recovery Center integrates conventional Physical Therapy and Suit Therapy programs to accelerate the development of new motor skills that strengthen muscles and teach the brain and body how to sit, stand, and walk.

qEEG Neurofeedback

QEEG/Neurofeedback with Real-time Brain Imaging

The Oxford Neurofeedback program evaluates brain activity patterns and teaches self-regulation of brain function through quantitative electroencephalography (qEEG). Also known as “brain mapping,” qEEG analyzes electrical patterns at the surface of the scalp.
