"Stroke is an Injury to Brain Cells Brought on by loss of Blood Flow"
"Loss of Blood Flow means loss of Energy Needed by Brain Cells to Live and Thrive"
Our Point of View
Stroke trauma results in the death of brain cells. The death of the brain cells results in loss of previously available brain function and associated physical performance. The impaired brain function triggers a persistent “stress response” psychologically fueled by a brain that is sensing its vulnerability and inability to take adequate care of itself and the body systems. The heightened stress disrupts good sleep and the brain enters a persistent state of mental fatigue that leads to depression. Mental fatigue can lead to pessimism and hopelessness. The brain needs assistance in rebuilding replacement brain cells, networks and function. Good stress management skills are needed!
Our Lesson Plan
Tutor these brains to learn to be efficient during the day and the brains will build up the mental energy reserves necessary to support good quality sleep performance. Neurofeedback is an assistive technology process that can teach these brains to function efficiently. As they begin to learn to use mental energy wisely, they begin to sleep better and soon discover more ability to stay focused and perform more effectively and successfully. Stress is managed better and function improvement is expected. Attitude improves as depression is replaced with hope and optimism.
