“Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder” and “Traumatic Brain Injury”



Trauma and its Impact on the Brain is usually treated with medication. At Unique Mind Care, we begin by understanding the origin of the trauma. Emotional Trauma and Physical Trauma have very similar symptoms which all relate to the health of the brain. We believe medication should be the last form of treatment because it does not normally treat the cause. Both forms of Trauma will usually create PTSD symptoms.

All UMC treatment plans are drug-free and begin with extensive testing to identify the specific event and its impact on Brain function. After testing and symptom evaluation a complete personalized treatment plan is developed. During treatment, the baseline testing protocol is repeated to monitor the healing process the client will experience.

Post Trauma – after the trauma     Stress Disorder – I have a stress disorder

PTSD occurs when an individual faces a shocking, scaring or dangerous event either all at once or in small amounts over a long period. After the event or events are over, people still respond to normal events with fear even though the frightening events are over.

TBI is a severe impact event that can affect the brain’s ability to process normal life events in a healthy manner. TBI can be devastating to the patient and to the family. One minute the injured has a normal life and the next they don’t. A TBI injury to the brain is frequently undetected and hard to understand. The impact of the injury can have a life-changing impact on personality, cognition, and general mood control. Sometimes the symptoms will appear immediately and other times they may not appear for several weeks or months.

PTSD and TBI are two of the most difficult conditions to diagnose. At UMC we are dedicated to understanding all aspects of these conditions. As difficult as they are to diagnose, they can be treated by focusing on the functional issues that have resulted from the injury. Our treatments are designed to reset and restore functional health to the brain.
