The brain is incredibly complex, and we’re learning more about how it works every single day. The brain has many different parts with their own special properties and all of these parts work together. You can think of your brain like a big computer, processing messages it receives from various parts of your body and sending messages back. But a brain is so much more complex than a machine — it also allows you to think and experience emotions.
The brain works hard! And when a brain is healthy and functioning correctly, it works automatically. When problems occur, however, the effects can be devastating. Whether a person suffers a stroke or concussion or has a neurological disease such as Alzheimer’s, brain disorders can wreak havoc on people’s quality of life.
Brain function is also affected by lifestyle factors, such as stress, diet, and exercise. Things like high blood pressure and smoking can also affect cognitive function as well as depression and sleep disorders.
Here at Plasticity Centers, we specialize in helping improve brain function! However, you don’t have to work with our functional neurologists to boost your brain function. Like we said earlier, things like improving your diet, getting regular exercise, and stimulating your brain through activities like puzzles are all ways to keep your mind sharp.
If you are suffering from a neurological condition, however, it’s important to seek professional help. Contact our brain center to set up an appointment with a functional neurologist.
Functional neurologists are highly trained professionals who work to help patients improve brain health and function. We use state-of-the-art technologies to help our patients with concussions, traumatic brain injury, and other neurological conditions.
Neuroplasticity — the ability of neural networks in the brain to change through growth and reorganization — is at the heart of what we do. Our therapies help you build healthier pathways within your brain to optimize brain function and brain health.
