We will work your brain, not just your body parts.
Your brain needs a work out! In order for your brain to properly function and perform high level thinking, problem solving, multitasking, and coordination required for real life situations, all areas of your brain need to work together.
Galaxy Brain and Therapy Center will challenge multiple areas of your brain simultaneously forcing it to work together and improve the neurological pathways that need strengthening.
We will challenge your brain do to new tasks that will make it stronger with every visit.
WARNING: THIS IS NOT YOUR AVERAGE CLINIC. YOUR BRAIN WILL FEEL TIRED WHEN YOU LEAVE.
But It’s been 7 years since my accident, can this still help?
YES! Absolutely! Without a doubt! We have worked with individuals who have been 9 years and 15 years post injury, and they improve and regain function, cognition and independence.
Your brain can change at any age, no matter how long it has been damaged. Make it work and it will get stronger.
Let it rest and it will rest.
MAKE IT WORK HARD AND IT WILL WORK UNTIL THINGS BECOME EASIER!
Your amazing brain loves EFFICIENCY! It won’t waste your energy.
When you first learned to tie your shoes your brain said, “STOP THIS IS TOO HARD, wear Velcro shoes, it’s much easier… these shoe laces are too slippery, too short, its too hard.”
If you listened to your brain you would still be wearing Velcro. But when your peers convinced you that it was much cooler to wear tie-up shoes, you were motivated and you forced your brain and body to learn to tie your shoes.
At first, you had to think about every step.
Then your brain said, “Well if you are not going to wear Velcro, then I better make this easier for you.” Your brain made a neurological super highway for tying your shoes, and before long you could do it without looking, tie any type of lace, and even carry on a conversation while doing it.
We will teach your brain to do difficult things so that eventually you can do them automatically again.
We are in the business of creating superhighways in your brain so you can get back to life!
What do these exercises help with?
While her at Galaxy, we feel the natural environment is the best way to get back to life.
Our passion is for 100% community involvement so that you can go back to the roles you had in life before your injury.
We want to get you back in your gym, your stores, your neighborhood and your workplace as fast as possible. That’s why we started this business 15 years ago.
However, what we learned is that there are high level executive functioning challenges that many still have difficulty with even after going through traditional inpatient and outpatient therapies.
These challenges include but are not limited to the following tasks:
- Difficulty making decisions
- Difficulty knowing how to start a project/ finish a project
- Feeling overwhelmed / unable to complete home organization projects
- Difficulty with crowds, being in public places,
- Difficulty dealing with unpredictable environments or circumstances
- Lack of enjoyment of holidays or being at family gatherings
- Difficulty or inability to do banking, budgeting, opening mail
- Difficulty organizing thoughts, having conversations over phone or in public
- Difficulty fitting in at or being able to work out at the local gym
- Inability or difficulty thinking on your toes
- Balance deficits and lack of motor coordination
And many other symptoms…
