At Progressive Therapy Associates, we really feel honored to have the opportunity to treat military veterans. We treat military members, veterans, and anyone who's had a blast injury or some type of brain injury while providing military service; those are the people we want to help. Especially those returning with a traumatic brain injury or those who have sustained multiple injuries would be helped at our clinic.
Military personnel and veterans returning home from their service tour, who have suffered a TBI, can often find civilian life very challenging. They often have sound sensitivity and light sensitivity. They're not remembering things like they used to.
For people who don't really understand what happens during a traumatic brain injury; a traumatic brain injury (TBI) means that an area of the brain no longer works. It's like road construction, so there's a road block, or some place you cannot pass. The skills that we provide here at Progressive Therapy Associates can help people find the most direct route to the destination helping them go around that road construction.
The reason that people with a traumatic brain injury end up seeing a speech pathologist is to work on their cognitive skills. We have the training and the background knowledge to be able to recognize what is typical brain functioning and what is atypical. We really hone in and specialize in treating traumatic brain injury at Progressive Therapy Associates.
The care we would provide here at Progressive Therapy Associates to veterans who have suffered a TBI, would address attention, memory, organization, and planning. All of those skills that would be necessary to returning to someone's normal.
Sometimes, when military veterans come here because they've had a brain injury; it's possible they may have already received therapy services prior for that brain injury. Unfortunately, sometimes what we see is that the service that the person received didn't actually fully meet what they needed.
If you've seen one patient with a brain injury, you've seen one patient with a brain injury. A traumatic brain injury looks very different from one person to the next.
The beauty of owning our own clinic is that if there is something that's not working for a patient and we know that we can make something different and better for them, we can implement the change instantly. This allows us to provide the care that's needed on the spot for each individual patient and family.
There's always hope for someone who's suffered a brain injury. Whether it's been two months, two years, or 20 years, there's definitely hope for people who have had a traumatic brain injury. Life doesn't have to be a constant struggle filled with daily stresses. Things can go smoothly, especially if you get some good compensatory strategies in place and learn about how your brain works.
Progressive Therapy Associates offers a free consultation to military service members, veterans and their families.
Give us a call 701-356-7766 to schedule your free consultation and we would be glad to answer any questions that you might have and certainly if what we provide here is not a match for you, we pride ourselves on knowing what's in the community and so we would also provide those connections as well.
Our doors here at Progressive Therapy Associates are absolutely open to service members and veterans. If help is needed for any kind of cognitive dysfunction that they're noticing or things just aren't going as well in their life as they used to, we are here to help.
