We don't think much about our brain until...
We need it to function better
We find ourselves with a decline or disease
We experience an injury or impairment.
It is then that we begin to think about the health of our brains.
We want to understand what has altered or injured our brain so we can restore or resolve what has migrated away from its health.
In the end, our focus becomes oriented toward the health of our brain and the adjustments and maintenance required to perform at a level that brings us comfort.
CREATING RESOURCES FOR CHANGING
WHAT CHANGES YOU
The road from brain injury to brain health isn't a solo journey
It involves individuals, families, caregivers, and professionals. Nevada Brain Injury realizes how each part works better when we focus on the whole. With choices that champion the challenges, we focus on the resources of the individual, the family, and the community.
THE COMMUNITY OF HELP
With so many distinct variations and methods for
assistance, what works for one doesn't work for all.
Understanding and educating is an ongoing process of learning, testing, and adjusting. Professionals also need support for the ever-changing vast arena that brain health and injury present. From identification to the process of application, Nevada Brain Injury is involved with exploring, researching, and application processes to provide more resources for professional providers and institutions to serve the affected community of brain health and injury.
We also provide healthy brain
resources for those that care
and provide. In this way, all improve
and move forward together. Brain injury
doesn't' just affect the individual, it affects the family and the community too.
At Nevada Brain Injury, we begin at the point of impact and take the challenging steps that champion choices and provide resources that become solutions for the changes. Our goal is for better brain health in a
way that works for each individual.
No two impacts will be the
the same, so the road to
health is uniquely paved.
for the changes that
impact the individuals, families, and professionals that make up the community of Brain Injury
We help you to realize what's possible
when the impossible appears.

Neuroplasticity and Growth
Individuals • Families • Professionals
DISCOVER THE ABILITY IN YOUR DISABILITY
The Power of Your Plasticity
Neuroplasticity refers to the malleability of your brain. Learning about plasticity is plasticity in action. Our brains are not fixed and adapt to each experience we encounter to learn new memories. This means that it is neither good nor bad, as all experiences engaged change our brain.
Focusing on the learning and memory experiences that arouse our curiosity and spark our imagination or the events that deepen our concentration and expand our mindfulness are the plastic elements that build the connections in our miles of neural wiring that positively affect us
Even with brain injury, impairment or disease, the brain is still able to build new synapses of strength. Plasticity can also be negative, as it is what you practice. We are here to exercise your natural resources and help you to learn something new and something better that helps you change what was changed into something that is useful, better, and awakens your capacity.
Build Productive Plasticity
EXERCISE • ATTITUDE • NUTRITION • EDUCATION
CURIOSITY • EXPLORATION • APPLICATION
There is Hope!
Developing an understanding of your brain injury gives you a reference point from which to begin. It is a new and often unexplored journey into the unknown. New things can be learned, plasticity can be built, and the aptitude of a can-do attitude makes the difference during the navigation through the tough spots. Not always easy, the dedication and determination of your willingness to move forward are your most treasured assets. Rather than waiting for someone else to discover or direct what you can do, you can take the initiative. The road is open when you are ready. Help and support can remind that you are not alone.
