How MOTIONrehab can help

Rehabilitation following a brain injury can be unpredictable because every brain injury is unique. When brain cells are damaged they do not regenerate. However, the brain and nervous system have an ability to reorganise itself, learn and reshape. This is called Neuro-plasticity. MOTIONrehab aims to promote re-learning within the brain by repeating movements and practice so that an individual can regain as much function as possible. The principle is similar to practice needed to learn to play an instrument or take part in a new sport.

Frequently asked questions

Acquired Brain Injury (ABI)

ABI is the term used for an injury to the brain. ABI can be classified as traumatic or non-traumatic.

Non-traumatic Brain Injury

Non-traumatic Brain Injuries to the brain that do not involve a traumatic or direct physical impact to the brain. This may include loss or complete lack of oxygen to the brain.

Anoxic Brain Injury

Anoxic brain injuries are caused by a complete lack of oxygen being provided to the brain, which results in the death of brain cells after approximately four minutes of oxygen deprivation.

Hypoxic Brain Injury

Hypoxic Brain Injuries are brain injuries that form due to a restriction on the oxygen being supplied to the brain. The restricted flow of oxygen causes the gradual death and impairment of brain cells.

Traumatic Brain Injury

The brain is protected and suspended in fluid inside the skull. Despite the hard bony case of the skull a trauma or physical impact to the head can result in damage to the brain. These are usually called Traumatic Brain Injuries, or TBI.

Following a TBI, injury to the brain can be caused by a number of different factors. The direct impact to the brain can cause bruising and swelling which affects how the brain works. In more severe cases the impact can cause the brain to shake about inside the skull, resulting in tearing of fine nerve fibres and blood vessels found within the brain tissue. Lastly the brain can bang into the inside of the skull causing more bruising and bleeding.

The severity of a TBI is usually measured by the length of time someone has lost consciousness for. Generally speaking the longer the time unconscious the more severe the brain injury.

Brain injury can result in someone having difficulties with any of the function controlled by the brain. This is very unique and no two injuries are the same. It can include difficulties with speech, vision, thinking skills, personality and mood. ABI will also affect the physical functions controlled by the brain. These may include difficulties with movement, sensation, balance, strength, muscle spasticity and co-ordination.

Rehabilitation is aimed at improving these difficulties so that someone can do as much for themselves as possible at home and whilst out and about.

Many people experience fatigue after brain injury, but the exact underlying cause is poorly understood. Often individuals can feel exhausted or sleepy, they lack energy, they feel weak, or have difficulties motivating themselves. For others it may worsen the difficulties they experience with their thinking skills and they experience greater problems with memory, they become irritable or dizzy. Rehabilitation can help by improving your physical fitness to reduce symptoms or by providing strategies to pace activities and manage symptoms.

MOTIONrehab provide an outpatient service, so we usually support people after they have left hospital, however we are happy to give advice at any stage.

The current understanding of brain injury would suggest that change happens at it’s fastest in the first two years after a brain injury, however crucially it does not stop at this point. Neuroplasticity, i.e. the re-wring of the nervous system is constantly happening and can be influenced by rehabilitation through repetition and practice. Many people say that they continue to re-gain skills lost following their injury.

MOTIONrehab® starts with an assessment to identify our patient’s difficulties and find out what is important to them. After this we put together a personalised treatment programme using hands-on therapy, exercises and state of the art rehabilitation technology to help individuals achieve their goals We will then discuss the options for your rehabilitation including whether intensive rehabilitation would work for you.
