Regenerate With The Future of Traumatic Brain Injury Treatment
TBI Therapy, founded and managed by Dr. John Hughes, D.O., specializes in the treatment of traumatic brain injury (TBI) using unique and effective procedures and protocols unlike any at found at modern rehabilitations clinics around the world. At TBI Therapy, it is our mission to leave no TBI untreated, which is why we have developed treatments that gives the body and brain exactly what it needs: oxygen, nutrition, and care. As a cutting-edge multimodal, regenerative approach to traumatic brain injury, the TBI Therapy protocol works to improve patients’ mental, emotional, and physical conditions, finally giving the millions of Americans who are living with disabilities from brain trauma a better quality of life.
Regenerate more effectively than ever with TBI Therapy, the future of traumatic brain injury treatment.
Approximately 32% of brain injured patients have never received any medical care for their injury, and an average of 50,000 patients die every year from related complications. In Colorado, 40% of the 3.8 million residents 18 years or older — about 1.5 million individuals — have traumatic brain injuries, ranging from mild to severe.
For people suffering from TBIs, symptoms include headaches, fatigue, light and sound sensitivity, memory loss, mood disorders, insomnia, suicidality, and more. In the most severe cases, TBI patients develop motor dysfunction including the loss of the ability to move arms and legs. It’s a serious injury affecting millions, and traditional treatment approaches are still not efficient enough to improve overall function.
The majority of treatment options for chronically debilitated TBI patients involve pharmaceutical drugs, occupational and physical rehabilitation, speech therapy, and cognitive maintenance. These traditional options, however, leave patients and their conditions unimproved. Many of them resign to accept their condition, gain little improvement, or even begin to experience a slow decline of cognitive and/or motor function.
Regenerative medicine continues to advance, but TBI treatments have been stalled for years. That is, until now.
At TBI Therapy, we are revolutionizing the way traumatic brain injuries are treated. Our multimodal approach applies a variety of procedures, including hyperbaric oxygen therapy, intranasal platelet rich plasma, intranasal stem cells, and other nutritional modalities, to optimize neuro-regeneration in patients suffering from the painful conditions associated with TBI. This patent pending, cutting-edge protocol developed by Dr. John Hughes, D.O., improves patients’ mental, physical, and emotional health in meaningful and measurable ways, finally giving much needed relief to the millions of people suffering from TBI-associated conditions every year.
Our case studies prove it: with TBI Therapy, patients who suffer from traumatic brain injury-related conditions can do more than cope with their pain. They can seek to improve it, and even heal it.
TBI Therapy is making treatment for traumatic brain injuries more practical, more effective, and more successful for patients and their doctors. Unique and powerful, TBI Therapy’s protocols and procedures are unlike any found at other cognitive rehab clinics. Unlike traditional treatments that seek to merely manage traumatic brain injuries and their associated conditions, TBI Therapy has the power to improve them. Using this new and regenerative, minimally invasive, and multimodal protocol only available through TBI Therapy, patients experience improvements in:
- Attention, cognition, memory, and concentration
- Emotional psychology and stability
- Ability to manage activities of daily life
- Light and sound sensitivity, pain, libido, and sleep
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
In hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT), patients breathe 100% oxygen at increased atmospheric pressures that allow the body to absorb 10-15 times its typical supply. The high dose of oxygen helps stimulate the regeneration of tissue, bone, and blood vessels while simultaneously reducing inflammation and mobilizing stem cells.
Intranasal Platelet Rich Plasma & Insulin
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is nutrient rich growth factors, cytokines, and stem cell precursors. When infused into the body through the nose, this powerful tissue healing liquid activates stem cells and enhances their activity and the body’s ability to heal.
Intranasal Adult Stem Cells
Adult stem cells possess two unique properties that make them effective in TBI treatments: self-renewal and multipotency, meaning they are able to maintain their ability to generate into several distinct cell types through multiple cycles of cell division. In this intranasal process, which is similar to Intranasal PRP, adult stem cells are infused into the body via the nasal passage in an effort to help stimulate tissue re-growth and increase blood flow to affected areas of the brain and body. As a result, damage cells are replaced with healthy ones, and new blood vessels and tissues grow, increasing organ function and capacity.
Many patients suffering from TBI experience an interference or full blockage of the natural rhythmic pulsations of their central nervous system, including in the brain and spinal cord, that are vital to health and well being. In Cranial Osteopathy, a skilled practitioner works to modify and improve those rhythmic pulsations as a step towards improving a patient’s overall health, and specific conditions related with their TBI.
When a patient suffers trauma in the brain, hypermetabolic and catabolic states are often triggered, severely impairing nitrogen homeostasis. Intravenous nutrition, which includes B-vitamins, minerals, Vitamin C, and other nutrients, works to correct any imbalances in brain chemistry as a way to improve overall TBI conditions.
Ketogenic Diet & MTC Oil
TBI treatment doesn’t stop at the clinic — it needs to continue at home, too. A ketogenic diet high in fatty acids like MCT oil can lead increased brain function and faster recovery time from TBI-related conditions.
At TBI Therapy, we believe in giving the brain and body what it needs all the time, which means employing adjunctive therapies from associated practitioners including:
- At-home hyperbaric chambers
- Sensory deprivation float tanks
- Massage & structural integration rolfing
- Musculoskeletal PRP injections
- Chiropractic & cranial facial release
- Exercise with oxygen
- … and more!
Using this multimodal approach, TBI Therapy’s regenerative protocols optimize healing, minimize suffering, and offer patients struggling to manage their traumatic brain injury-related conditions a better way to heal.
TBI Therapy began as a dream to more effectively treat the millions of TBI patients across the country, and in the four years since its founding, has made significant progress towards accomplishing the ambitious goal to leave no TBI untreated.
Dr. John Hughes, D.O., the innovator behind TBI Therapy and its unique treatment plan, began developing the TBI Treatment Protocol in 2013, and by 2014, TBI Therapy, LLC, was formed. Since its founding, TBI Therapy has hit major milestones, including the patent-pending status of our innovative protocols and formulation.
But patents and paperwork isn’t all we have to show for ourselves. TBI Therapy also has a treatment track record that speaks for itself. In 2016, we successfully treated 19 patients and grossed $76K in revenue from our office in Basalt, Colorado. Those patients who have undergone our treatment have cited improvements in:
Patients who have used TBI Therapy’s treatments are not just improving their conditions, they are also improving their lives. Patients treated with TBI Therapy’s cutting-edge protocol have enjoyed getting their energy back, being able to return to work, and even improving their overall mood and mental health.
At TBI Therapy, we are continuing to strive to regenerate and rebuild the minds, bodies, and lives of TBI patients around the world. Currently, TBI Therapy runs one office in Basalt, CO, where we have the capacity to treat an average of two patients per week — but we know we can do more.
That’s why TBI Therapy has an ambitious plan to leave no TBI untreated by:
At TBI Therapy, we believe that traumatic brain injury patients deserve more than coping. They deserve to live their healthiest and happiest lives, and we are dedicated to making that happen, one TBI at a time.
