A concussion is defined as a head injury caused by a traumatic blow, or violent back and forth movement of the brain inside the skull. When the brain is injured in such a way, symptoms such as headache, dizziness, nausea, lack of motor skills, confusion, loss of short term memory, and general cognitive dissonance can be so severe that normal function becomes impossible. Luckily, modern brain concussion treatment is very successful in abating even the most debilitating symptoms.
Colorado Injury Center employs a highly skilled team of professionals and state-of-the-art technology to aid in the treatment of brain concussions. The most useful tool available today is the revolutionary GyroStim Performa therapy system. Using vestibular rehabilitative therapy to effectively “jump-start” the natural healing abilities of the brain after being damaged by injury or disease. The vestibular system of the inner ear sometimes needs manual stimulation to initiate the process.
Previously, the methods used to apply this stimulation have been rudimentary at best. Rocking boards and manual swings are severely limited by human strength and accuracy. The GyroStim system has no such limitations. Because it is fully automated, the multi-axis “space-man chair” can deliver powerful vestibular stimulation with the exact precision that is required by the prescribing physician.
Successful brain concussion treatment and the curing of the related symptoms has never been easier. GyroStim is an increasingly popular tool for treating many types of brain disorders and injuries, even though it’s relatively new. There are currently only two operational GyroStim systems in existence today, one of which is owned by Colorado Injury Center. The GyroStim Performa is on the cutting-edge of brain concussion treatment, and our team of medical professionals is proud to be at the forefront of that trend.
