🌼 The Spring Equinox this year took place on March 19th or March 10th, 2024 depending where you are located. The Equinox unofficially marked the spring season and is traditionally observed as a time of rebirth and renewal. 💚During the Equinox, day and night are almost the same amount of time. ☀️🌙We can use this change to nurture our minds, prioritize self-care, and cultivate positive changes for our overall well-being 💫 🌸 Embracing the Spring Equinox as a time of renewal for our mental health 🌱 Reflecting on the symbolism of new beginnings and the balance of the Equinox 🌼....#concussion #postconcussionsyndrome #BrainInjuryAwarness #beyondconcussion #success #journey #overcome #battle #traumaticbraininjury #headinjury #postconcussionlife #brainhealth #TBI #InvisibleInjury  #youarenotalone #chronicillness #brain #braininjury #nevergiveup #healingjourney #Spring #mentalhealth #change #balance #selfcare #positivechange #springequinox #NewBeginnings #selfreflection #mentalhealthmatters ...

Exciting research offers hope for those with traumatic brain injury! A trial led by Harvard-affiliated Spaulding Rehab Hospital reveals electrical stimulation could revitalize dormant brain circuits, potentially restoring lost functions. Researchers used deep brain stimulation to stimulate the thalamus, your body’s information relay station.This could transform lives previously thought permanently altered. Even after severe injuries, patients saw remarkable improvements, challenging the notion of brain damage as irreversible. While not a cure-all, this breakthrough challenges pessimism, paving the way for a brighter future. 🌟 Excerpts from the Harvard Gazette Article: “A common view of brain injury, held by both laypeople and the medical community, is that the affected cells cannot regrow, leading to permanent disability. In this case, investigators tested an alternate theory: The idea that some — perhaps many — injuries disrupt signaling between parts of the brain, and it is the loss of communication, rather than cell death, that causes much of the decline in function. If that’s the case, they say, then it’s possible that stimulating brain regions important in communication can restore some function.” “‘…what it’s doing is putting the brain into a state of readiness, so when the demands are there to engage a particular network or subsystem, it can do that,” said Joseph Giacino, Spaulding’s director of rehabilitation neuropsychology and a professor of physical medicine and rehabilitation at Harvard Medical School, who helped design the study. .....#Concussion #PostConcussionSyndrome #BrainInjuryAwarness #BeyondConcussion #Success #Journey #Overcome #Battle #TraumaticBrainInjury #HeadInjury #PostConcussionLife #BrainHealth #TBI #InvisibleInjury  #YouAreNotAlone #ChronicIllness #Brain #BrainInjury #NeverGiveUp #HealingJourney #Treatment#ResearchHope #MedicalBreakthrough ...
