Individualized Treatment Plans & Therapies
Even if two people have the same diagnosis, every client’s brain functions differently, and their challenges are unique. That’s why at Plasticity®, we treat people, not diagnoses. We create customized treatment plans for each client based on their individual brain function, challenges and goals. By utilizing innovative technology combined with a personalized treatment plan, we can achieve maximal outcomes by creating programs that are tailored to the client’s needs.
Like a cooking recipe, our rehabilitation process depends on the perfect mix of three factors:
- The type of intervention (the therapy/treatment/exercise)
- The order of intervention
- The amount of each intervention
With thousands of exercises and therapy variations (many exclusive to our process) and many different sequences, there are literally millions of combinations of therapies we can offer as part of an individual’s treatment plan, especially within our program. Many of our clients express that they are perplexed by the dramatically different outcomes generated by performing seemingly similar therapies compared to their previous therapies. These expressions provide us with verification that the way in which interventions are delivered is critical to the ultimate outcome.
Much of our work is founded in a concept called “Event, Activity, or Training-Induced Synaptic Plasticity.” This work was pioneered and explored by pivotal researchers Paul Bach-y-Rita, Michael Merzenich (who received the 2016 Kavli Prize in Neuroscience “for the discovery of mechanisms that allow experience and neural activity to remodel brain function”), and more recently, Dr. Jeffery Kleim. Dr. Kleim suggests that there are 10 principles of neural plasticity, which we have incorporated into our technique.
