A New Approach to Brain Injury Recovery

Do you have persistent concussion* or brain injury?

Are you interested in returning to work or resuming activities of daily living?

Would you be willing to commit time and energy to regain lost cognitive, physical, and emotional health?

(*persistent concussion refers to 3 months or more post-concussion with unresolved symptoms)

 

BrainTrust offers you an innovative brain injury recovery program developed by ABI Wellness. It's an evidence-based program supported by current research in the field.

How the Brain Injury Recovery Program Works

The program targets cognitive rehabilitation while using aerobic exercise, mindfulness, and counselling to support progress. This unique combination allows neuroplasticity, the brain's ability to rewire itself.

Results have shown substantial improvement in processing speed, attention, concentration, and cognitive flexibility (all areas severely impacted by brain injury). Gains are possible even several years post-injury.

Cognitive Rehabilitation

Cognitive rehabilitation is the main focus. We use the BrainEX™ program. Evidence shows highly successful outcomes for brain injury.

Aerobic Exercise

Aerobic exercise releases chemicals in the brain that enhance cognitive function, especially memory and concentration. 

Mindfulness Meditation

Mindfulness reduces stress and fatigue in patients with brain injury. It can also help improve attention, concentration, and mood.

Clinical Counselling

Counselling helps you manage anxiety, depression, or overwhelm. This brings clear thinking and more balance in life.

BrainTrust's brain injury recovery program uses computer-integrated tracking to monitor client progress.

Another strength of our brain injury recovery program is the use of computer-integrated tracking. This means we can monitor engagement, evaluate progress, and make adjustments to your program in real time. Responses to a quality of life survey before, during, and after the program are also tracked to help us understand patient needs.

The program is held in a small group setting at our Brain Health Clinic. The clinic is in the BrainTrust office at #11-368 Industrial Ave., Kelowna.

Eligibility

This program is appropriate for people with persistent concussion or brain injury who:

  • are motivated to actively participate in their own recovery
  • want to return to work/sport
  • want to resume activities of daily living
  • are working toward returning to college or university

You can join the program anywhere from 4 months to 25 years or more post-injury.

  • We understand that lack of finances can be challenging. Don't let the cost of the program be a deterrent. BrainTrust will help you find funding to pay for the program (e.g. ICBC or private insurers).
