Traumatic Brain Injury: Dr. Laurie Chaikin Explains Vision & Balance Problems (Full Interview)
See the full 30-minute interview here. http://thetbicoach.com/videogallery/dr-laurie-chaikin-explains-vision-balance-problems-full-interview/ Behavioral Optometrist, Occupational Therapist, and Neuro Rehabilitation specialist Dr. Laurie Chaikin explains how people with Traumatic Brain Injury and Concussion can repair their visual issues, previously believed to be permanent.. See the full 30-minute interview and get my special report on 3 Things Everyone with a Brain Injury Needs to Know at http://www.TheTBICoach.com Dr. Laurie Chaikin received her Masters in Science degree in Occupational Therapy in 1983 and her Doctor of Optometry degree from UC Berkeley in May 1993. By integrating her knowledge and interest in vision and neurological rehabilitation Dr. Chaikin has created a unique practice that represents a merging of both disciplines. Her current professional interests focus on early identification of visual problems in patients following stroke and other traumatic brain injury. Early identifcation allows her to develop effective visual rehabilitation treatment plans. Dr. Chaiken can be reached at www.OptoRehab.com QUESTIONS: When we think of traumatic brain injuries, we think of cognitive issues, what percentage of people with traumatic brain injuries have their vision affected? Why is vision so affected? How are the eyes and the brain interconnected? For some people with TBI, visual processing can be exhausting. What percentage of the brain’s available energy goes to processing vision? So if the brain had to work harder to understand what it was seeing, would it take energy away from the brain’s other functions, creating fatigue and less function all around? What kind of visual impairments are most commonly seen? I have heard survivors say “I can see but I feel like I am blind.” How would you explain that so that others can understand that? I have also heard survivors say that they feel disconnected from everything, as if the world were surreal. Is that a function of visual processing? How are the visual problems affecting dizziness and disorientation in space? What happens in a store or a visually stimulating environment? Why do florescent lights make the issues worse? How is the ability to read and understand what one is reading affected? THE DIAGNOSIS These issues seem very hard to diagnose. I had at least 12 different doctors, neurologists, and neuro-optomotrists unable to find my issues. What tools are required to diagnose these issues? What kind of practitioner would have these tools? What is the difference between Neuro-Optomology and Behavioral Optometry? THE SOLUTION If someone watching were having these kinds of debilitating issues either for themselves or for a loved one, what would you suggest they do? I know you offer a lot of different healing modalities which is important because every brain injury is different. What are the treatment methods you use? What are the ones that are most commonly helpful with TBI? Does vision ever return to normal? Dizziness and disorientation? I have read that the optic nerve is the only part of the brain that has not been shown to be neuro-plastic or repairable, is that true in your opinion? Do you have a message of hope for traumatic brain injury survivors?

The New Revolution in Hacking Traumatic Brain Injury and PTSD - Dr. Mark Gordon & Andrew Marr
Could you be walking around with a traumatic brain injury, or TBI, and not even know it? Could it be causing depression, or changes in your personality that you can’t explain? Dr. Mark Gordon, interventional endocrinology specialist and Medical Director at the Millennium Warrior Angels Foundation TBI Project, says inflammation is the culprit exacerbating these debilitating symptoms. Especially for U.S. service members and veterans who have sustained a TBI while in the line of duty. Andrew Marr, a Special Forces Green Beret who sustained a head trauma in combat, understands first-hand how damaging TBI symptoms can be. But Mark’s hormone-based treatment protocol profoundly changed Andrew’s life, prompting him to start the Warrior Angels Foundation, which provides personalized care to treat the underlying condition for those who have sustained TBIs. In this fascinating discussion with Dave, Mark and Andrew share intimate stories about their experiences with brain injuries, and how they teamed up to make a difference. Plus, Mark shares his candid viewpoint on PTSD, you’ll learn what to do if you get hit in the head, and most importantly, you’ll get some valuable tips on how to manage inflammation in the brain.

Traumatic Brain Injury No Adjust Work Compromises
http://braininjuryhelp.com 1-800-992-9447 http://www.tbilaw.com http://whybraininjuryattorney.com/ I'd like to focus on two main areas where we've talked about - what happened at work, how your vocational pursuits have matured and then about the relationships that you have, particularly your children. Okay. So, you went back to work, six weeks, two months after your accident. Tell me about that. My boss, she was a pretty great lady. She had her own, unfortunately, she had issues happen in her life that happened with mine and, and she's still a nice lady. But I no longer believed in my job and I no longer believed that taking people out of the institution and pretty much putting in a community institution is what we've done. I didn't believe in what I was doing anymore. I used to think that they needed more drugs, you know. Oh, their behaviors (are out of whack), their dose is out of whack. Now when I looked at that point when I started looking at why they were having issues, you would have issues if you were being controlled the way that they are. And this is the residential supported living which is the best. You have four roommates that you don't get to choose. So you're forced to move in with somebody you don't like and you have a staff that I wouldn't let take care of my dog. To be honest with you, I really wouldn't let them watch my dog. Here we're asking them to comply and so, my whole concept around what I was doing (was troubling.) It was the staff issues which wasn't going over real good with the state when I'm doing behavior support plans for state managers. But that truly was where the issues were coming (from) was the power control of some of the program manager, managers that were in the field. I started taking a different approach at it. That's where People First came in, because I was part of them before and during my transition they were the only organization that stuck by me. We've created a, a network of succeeders, rather than conformers. It's been an interesting 10, 11 years with People First.

Severe Head Injuries and Suicide Risk - Dr. Jeff Sellman on NBC News Channel 8
Adults who experience a concussion have a long-term suicide risk that is three times higher than that of the general population, says a new study published in the Canadian Medical Association Journal. That risk increases by a further third if the concussion occurs on a weekend. “Patients who experienced a concussion were at increased risk of suicide regardless of demographic factors such as age, sex, socioeconomic status or past psychiatric conditions," says the lead researcher Donald Redelmeier who is a senior core scientist at ICES and a physician at Sunnybrook. "We also found that each additional concussion was associated with a further increase in suicide risk, and that the risk was higher still when the concussion occurred on a weekend.” In this large study, the researchers identified 235,110 adult concussion patients over a 20-year period using diagnostic codes from the Ontario Health Insurance Plan database. They looked at whether concussions occurred on a weekend or a weekday, to distinguish between recreational injuries and occupational injuries. The mean age of patients was 41 years, about half were men, and the majority lived in cities. Most had no prior suicide attempt, prior hospitalization or previous psychiatric disorder. Over the 20-year period studied, the researchers subsequently observed an additional 470 suicide deaths in the concussion patients not accounted for by expected rates of suicide. The average time delay between concussion and suicide was six years. Among the study's findings: Of the 168,188 patients experiencing concussion who had no prior suicide attempt, psychiatric diagnosis or hospitalizations, a total of 387 completed a suicide, equal to an absolute risk of 24 per 100,000, or more than twice the population norm. Having multiple concussions was associated with a further increase in suicide risk, increasing the relative risk of suicide by an additional 30 per cent with each additional concussion. The increased risk of suicide following weekend concussions was present in all patient subgroups, regardless of demographic factors. Several other factors were additional independent predictors of the long-term risk of suicide including male sex, low socioeconomic status, prior psychiatric diagnosis, and past attempts. "We know that a concussion can cause lasting changes in the brain that can alter mood, perhaps resulting in behaviour changes including impulsivity,” says Redelmeier. “It’s possible that we’re seeing greater suicide risk linked to weekend concussions due to risk-taking associated with recreation or misadventure, whereas weekday injuries may be linked to employment hazards. We may also be seeing an effect of self-blame if the injury event was self-initiated.” Noting that further investigation is needed, the authors say their findings suggest that a past history of a concussion may be relevant when assessing a patient’s suicide risk. “Understanding how a history of concussion raises the risk of suicide, and supporting patients with better screening, treatment and follow-up for recovery may be important steps in preventing these tragic and avoidable deaths.” Florida Orthopaedic Institute brings highly skilled orthopedic care to Tampa Bay and the surrounding area by offering virtually unmatched expertise in every orthopedic subspecialty.

Kohn, 649 Ridgeview Dr. McHenry, IL 60050 Ph: (815) 344-7951 Treatment Philosophy Dr. Robert Kohn knows that the proper diagnosis leads to the proper treatment. He uses a Holistic concept of Healing and views the patient as a whole, rather than just treating the symptoms. Dr. Kohn's approach is to assess your symptoms using a Biological-Psychological-Social framework. This is explained in Our Approach to Healing. What is a Neuro-Psychiatrist? A Neuro-Psychiatrist refers to a physician who is trained in the field of Neurology and Psychiatry. This training and experience forms the foundation for understanding medical conditions that affect our brain and behavior. Impaired brain behavior relationships result in problems that affect our attention (ADHD/ADD), memory (Memory Loss), emotion (Mood Disorders), and executive functions (Brain Injury) such as planning, problem solving, time management and the use of language. A Neuro-Psychiatrist uses this understanding to diagnose and treat diseases, injuries, and inherited conditions that impair our personal and interpersonal well-being. Treatment requires an agreement between you, the patient, and the treatment plan that can include medical testing, medicine, and the use of other resources. How can Dr. Kohn help you? - He uses his extensive knowledge, training and experience. - He evaluates the patient with brain tools. - He allows the patient to share their complete story. - He listens to the context of the problem from the patient and encourages parents, spouse, or partner contributions. - He applies a rational, step by step approach to the use of medication. - He is open minded to alternative therapies that may complement the Treatment Plan. - He provides referrals, as needed, to other professional colleagues for testing, therapy and brain imaging.

Traumatic brain injury recovery symptoms|Mange post-concussion syndrome sign after head damge
Traumatic brain injury (TBI) occurs when a sudden trauma, such as a blow or jolt to the head, causes damage to the brain. Such injuries can result in impaired physical, cognitive, emotional, and behavioral functioning. Approximately 1.4 million individuals sustain a TBI each year in the United States. In times of combat, 14-20% of surviving casualties suffer a TBI. What are the common symptoms of TBI? After TBI, persons often report symptoms in the days, weeks, and perhaps months following injury, but do improve over time. The most common symptoms after head injury are known as post-concussion syndrome (PCS). These symptoms include physical complaints (dizziness, fatigue, headaches, visual disturbances, trouble sleeping, sensitivity to light and sound, poor balance), cognitive changes (poor concentration, memory problems, poor judgment and impulsivity, slowed performance, difficulty putting thoughts into words), and psychosocial concerns (depression, anger outbursts, irritability, personality changes, anxiety). Traumatic Brain Injury: A guide for patients 2 These symptoms are part of the normal recovery process and are not signs of brain damage or medical complications. These symptoms are expected as you get better and are not a cause for concern or worry. It is important to remember that the symptoms are a normal part of recovery and will likely go away on their own. Of course, we all have some of these symptoms once in a while anyway. After a head injury it can be easy to forget that we were sometimes irritable, tired, had headaches, couldn’t concentrate, or forgot things even before the accident. Try to deal with these things the same way you did before. Managing specific symptoms Poor Concentration The main cause of poor concentration is tiredness. When it becomes difficult to concentrate on what you’re doing, take a break and relax. Between 15 and 30 minutes a day should be enough. If you still continue to have problems, your work day, class schedule, or daily routine should be temporarily shortened. Trying to “stick to it” won’t help, and usually makes things worse. So, if you really need to concentrate on something important, do so when you’re feeling fresh. Fatigue It is normal to be more tired after a head injury. Most people experience some degree of fatigue during their recovery. The only sensible treatment for being tired is rest. Avoid wearing yourself out. Gradually increase your activity level. You may find that you need to sleep more than usual, in which case it is a good idea to get the extra sleep that you need. Physical and mental fatigue usually diminishes over time; it should be greatly improved within 6 months after a brain injury. Sleep Difficulties You might expect that the fatigue you experience during recovery would cause you to sleep more soundly. However, sleep disturbance is actually quite common following a brain injury. Getting adequate sleep is very important in the healing process. If you don’t sleep well at night, you’ll be more tired during the day. Simple suggestions to improve your sleep habits and routines: • Wake up at roughly the same time each morning. • Avoid caffeine, especially in the evenings. • Avoid exercising late in the evening. • Set your bedroom temperature to a comfortable level. • Ensure that your bedroom is quiet and dark. • If you take daytime naps, try to rest long enough to re-energize (30 minutes or less should be sufficient), but not so long that you’ll have difficulty falling asleep in the evening. Irritability and emotional changes Some people show emotions more easily after a brain injury There are a variety of different techniques to deal with irritability. Some people find that leaving the frustrating situation temporarily is helpful. One frequent cause of irritability and emotionality is fatigue. People lose their tempers more easily when they are tired or overworked. Adjust your schedule and get more rest if you notice yourself becoming irritable or emotional. Depression For reasons we do not fully understand, depression seems to occur more often after a brain injury. More than one-third of people with recent traumatic brain injury become depressed One reason for this increase in depression may be because brain injury causes an imbalance in certain chemicals in the brain and disrupts brain networks critical for mood regulation. We feel good when good things happen to us. Thus, an effective way to treat depression is to make sure that good things happen. One way to do this is to plan to do something enjoyable for yourself each day. Thanks for watching subscribe to my channel awareness and precautions video
Executive Functioning Deficits After Brain Injury
http://braininjuryhelp.com 800-992-9447 Executive functioning deficits typically deal with 3 areas. The first would be goals the second would be flexibility and the third would be time management. Clearly a C.E.O has to do more than those things. But if the C.E.O can't do those things the rest of the brain isn't going to work very well. Goal setting means you have to be able to plan, and then to some degree carry out those plans. Time management isn't just getting things done of the clock, although that is a very important aspect of it but it's a question of marshalling the resources and not just throw together. Flexibility is the other important aspect of executive functioning. You not only have to be able to be flexible they have to be able to make a plan you have to be able to respond flexibly if things go wrong. Attorney Gordon Johnson of the Brain Injury Law Group discusses executive functioning deficits after a brain injury. http://tbilaw.com/blog/executive-functioning-deficits

Social Options and Obstacles After Traumatic Brain Injury
http://braininjuryhelp.com 1-800-992-9447 Doug discusses how he uses Facebook to outreach to old friends, his interest but lack of success in dating, the obstacles he thinks he has in terms of dating and the difficulties he anticipates having in finding a relationship. Our philosophy is to ensure the best outcome after a TBI, the post morbid plan has to simulate the growth in behavior and maturity that we experience as children and young adults. The concept is easy to grasp in the context of speech pathology and physical therapy in the inpatient setting. Many severe TBI survivors have to relearn to both walk and talk, as if they were children again. When you apply that principle to long term improvement in the community, one must start from the realization that the frontal lobes are the slowest part of our brains to develop. Much of the neural networks that govern mood, executive functioning and maturity continue to develop well into our 20's. If one is doubtful of that statement, think how you or your children behaved differently at 25 than at 18. Thus, if key aspects of frontal lobe functioning are impacted by brain injury, then we must not only "go back to school" so to speak, we must also go through the social part of early adulthood. Too much of the modern approach to TBI diagnosis and treatment treats important neuro-behavioral deficits as permanent, unchangeable facts, which it will do our society no good to try to treat. I believe TBI survivors can relearn to become adults, that while it may take more time, more patience than it did the first time, over a generation, severe neurobehavioral problems may be treated and disappear. The brain has great potential for plasticity. By plasticity I mean ability for a different part of the brain to take over the functions traditionally thought to be performed by a localized part of the brain. One theory I have with respect to frontal lobe deficits is that there is nothing unique about the cerebral cortex about that part of the brain as it relates to neurobehavior. I believe that the reason most adult- like functions are handled by the frontal lobes is because that is the largest unused part of the brain's hard drive in those critical adolescent and young adult years when most maturity occurs. http://tbilaw.com/tbivoices/doug-story-concludes-community-integration/

What is a Treatment Plan & how do we make one? Mental Health Help with Kati Morton
Pre-order My New Book Today! ARE YOU OK? http://bit.ly/2s0mULy What is a Treatment Plan & how do we make one? Today I talk about treatment plans and what therapists really do behind the scenes. I think it's really important to know how therapy really works and why therapists ask you the questions they do. Most therapist will ask you at the beginning "what brought you here today" and try to work out what your main goal for therapy is. This helps us better create a plan. From there we begin the assessment process. This could be diagnosis, figuring out what you have worked on before, your school and family history, etc. While doing this, we will also be giving you homework and trying out new tools to see what works for you and what doesn't. The main goal for any therapist is that you don't need to see us anymore. That being said, know that coming back to therapy is normal and most therapists have an open door policy :) So let your process be just that and go back if you need to.

Patients Emerge from Persistent Comas and Vegetative States in Nexus Health Systems Program
Nexus Health Systems announces the launch of our Emerging Consciousness Program – also known as the Phoenix Project – for individuals with a disorder of consciousness post-brain injury. Since the program formed in early 2018, over 85% of our patient population has experienced improved wakefulness after being in a coma or vegetative state for anywhere from weeks to years. Pediatric and adult patients admit to the Phoenix Project in a coma or vegetative state after a brain injury acquired from a catastrophic event. Common occurrences include motor vehicle accident, gunshot wound, industrial accident, hemorrhage, drug overdose and near drowning. Once patients are admitted and evaluated, the team deploys individualized neuropharmacological treatment plans to draw patients out of unconsciousness and accelerate cognitive, functional and behavioral capabilities. “Our program gives families another option besides life support and death,” Dr. John W. Cassidy, Nexus Founder and Chief Medical Officer, explained. “Many of our patients are given minimal chances to live, let alone further heal and wake up.”

Sleep, Daylight Anchoring, and Effects on Memory & Obesity with Dan Pardi
Dan Pardi is a Ph.D candidate that researches sleep neurobiology at Stanford and University of Leiden. He is also co-founder of Dan’s Plan, an online wellness and technology company. In this podcast Rhonda and Dan discuss what the determinants of good sleep are including duration, timing and intensity,the major causes of less sleep in our society, the consequences of sleep loss including decreased purging of toxic substances from the brain, damage to neurons that signal to the brain to stay awake (and how this leads to that feeling that you need coffee in the morning), increased incidence of chronic diseases such as cancer and type 2 diabetes, cognitive and behavioral impairments, the impact on eating behaviors and weight gain. We also discuss what the optimal amount of sleep is, the importance of sleep timing, and keeping the same schedule as well as other ways to improve sleep. ▶︎ Get the show notes! https://www.foundmyfitness.com/episodes/dan-pardi You can find the amazing Dan Pardi at... ▶︎ Dan's Facebook https://www.facebook.com/humanos.me/ ▶︎ Dan's Twitter https://twitter.com/humanos_me ▶︎ Dan's Website http://humanos.me/ ---------- ▶︎ Join my weekly newsletter: http://www.foundmyfitness.com/?sendme=nutrigenomics ▶︎ Crowdfund more videos: http://www.patreon.com/foundmyfitness ▶︎ Subscribe on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=foundmyfitness ▶︎ Subscribe to the podcast: http://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/foundmyfitness/id818198322 ▶︎ Twitter: http://twitter.com/foundmyfitness ▶︎ Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/foundmyfitness ▶︎ Instagram: http://www.instagram.com/foundmyfitness

Back Safety: Lifting Safety - Use Your Head - Back Injury Prevention - Safety Video
Back Safety: Lifting Safely - Use Your Head - Back Injury Prevention - Short Safety Video Back Safety -- Use Your Head Most back pain is caused by an injury -- the most common injuries are back strains from lifting, or twisting or bending while lifting. Using your head before lifting anything can help make sure you do not live the rest of your life in pain. Follow 3 simple rules to protect your back: 1. Think 2. Plan 3. Lift Make sure you have a good idea of how heavy the object is you are going to lift. Do not try to lift objects that are awkward or are heavier than 30 to 40 pounds. Reaching overhead puts tremendous strain on your back and shoulders. Use a stepstool or ladder to raise yourself up to the level of what you are reaching. To pick up an object that is lower than the level of your waist, don't bend forward at the waist with your knees straight. Remember the hinge in your back that we talk about in another video. Instead, keep your spine as straight as possible and bend at your knees and hips. Stand with a wide stance close to the object you are trying to pick up and keep your feet firm on the ground. Tighten your stomach muscles and use your leg muscles to lift the object. Straighten your knees in a steady motion. Smooth, steady movements. Never lift something by "jerking" it up. Never lift and twist at the same time. Stand completely upright without twisting. Then move your feet, don't twist your body. Hold items close to your body with your arms bent. Keep your elbows in tight to your sides. Hug the load. Unstable lifting stresses your back. Using two hands to lift keeps your body stable. Make sure you can see the top of what you are trying to lift. Any unseen object can slide off and strike your head and face. Use your head, remember a few safety rules before lifting, and save your back. For more videos like this one, see our channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/SafetyMemos Never miss a new safety video!

Value To 24-7 Facebook Support after Brain Injury
http://braininjuryhelp.com/ 1-800-992-9447 http://www.tbilaw.com DJ explains the value of having a 24/7 brain injury support group on Facebook. Layers. The layers of brain injury involve the interplay of human thought, interaction and behavior -- which come with an infinite set of variables, not reducible to GCS, IQ or neuropsychological scores. To comprehend and assist those with brain injury, there must be the application of judgment, wisdom and experience. It is through the experience of those who have gone before, that the most help is often received. The challenge for the future is to find a way to add judgment and wisdom to that equation, merging survivor, caregiver and professional into a synergistic whole that can make a collective difference. http://www.tbilaw.com/tbivoices/index.php/braininjury/dj-teamhilevel-for-facebook-brain-injury-support/

PTSD-Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder-Mental Health with Phillip Luttrell
This video provides information regarding PTSD and what treatment is available. The video is based on the following DSM-5 criteria: Direct exposure. 1)Witnessing, in person. 2)Indirectly, by learning that a close relative or close friend was exposed to trauma. If the event involved actual or threatened death, it must have been violent or accidental. 3)Repeated or extreme indirect exposure to aversive details of the event(s), usually in the course of professional duties (e.g., first responders, collecting body parts; professionals repeatedly exposed to details of child abuse). Intrusion symptoms 1)Recurrent, involuntary, and intrusive memories. Note: Children older than six may express this symptom in repetitive play. Traumatic nightmares. Note: Children may have frightening dreams without content related to the trauma(s). 2)Dissociative reactions (e.g., flashbacks) which may occur on a continuum from brief episodes to complete loss of consciousness. Note: Children may reenact the event in play. 3)Intense or prolonged distress after exposure to traumatic reminders. 4)Marked physiologic reactivity after exposure to trauma-related stimuli. Avoidance Symptoms 1)Trauma-related thoughts or feelings. 2)Trauma-related external reminders (e.g., people, places, conversations, activities, objects, or situations). Impairments of Cognition 1)Inability to recall key features of the traumatic event (usually dissociative amnesia; not due to head injury, alcohol, or drugs). 2)Persistent (and often distorted) negative beliefs and expectations about oneself or the world (e.g., "I am bad," "The world is completely dangerous"). 3)Persistent distorted blame of self or others for causing the traumatic event or for resulting consequences. 4)Persistent negative trauma-related emotions (e.g., fear, horror, anger, guilt, or shame). Markedly diminished interest in (pre-traumatic) significant activities. 5)Feeling alienated from others (e.g., detachment or estrangement). 6)Constricted affect: persistent inability to experience positive emotions. Arousal Symptoms 1)Irritable or aggressive behavior 2)Self-destructive or reckless behavior 3)Hypervigilance 4)Exaggerated startle response 5)Problems in concentration 6) Sleep disturbance Treatment Options: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy: Helps someone make the connection between their feelings and thoughts, which will impact their behavior. Someone will gradually be exposed to triggering things associated with the trauma. Eye Movement Desenitization and Reprocessing: You follow a therapists finger, or light while talking about the trauma. It helps the brain reprocess the trauma and lead to quicker recovery.
