We provide a revolutionary, research-based approach to neurological rehabilitation.  Our unique, non-invasive, drug-free and individualized treatment protocols take advantage of a scientific concept known as brain plasticity, where the brain is capable of changing and improving.

Some of the ways we can provide objective evidence to help guide your recovery is through the use of computerized posturography, videonystagmography and saccadometry.

POST-CONCUSSION SYNDROME / MILD TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY

NEURODEGENERATIVE CONDITIONS

MOVEMENT DISORDERS

Clinical neuroscience is founded on the key concept of neuroplasticity.  Nerve connections in the brain are considered “plastic” because they can be modified by motor, sensory, emotional or cognitive experiences.  Research on the brain has demonstrated that a nerve cell can grow connections to new neurons (known as synaptogenesis), as well as having the ability to create new neurons (neurogenesis).

 

It’s important to note that neuroplasticity can develop negative consequences.   Through damage or lack of stimulation there can be decreased firing of a neuronal pathways causing nerve cell death. The application of clinical neuroscience is designed to support healthy neuroplasticity of the nervous system.  

 

“Clinical neuroscience uses components of neuro-rehabilitation applied in a unique way to help a poorly functioning nervous system improve, often with permanent success,” says Dr. Lawrence.

 

Some of the conditions that respond well to this unique approach are concussion / mild traumatic brain injury, neuro-degenerative disorders, movement disorders, ADD/ADHD, P.O.T.S and dysautonomia.

Throughout his career Dr. Lawrence has continued to seek a better way to help those whom he has had the honour of treating. Consequently, he has incorporated leading edge technology such as laser therapy, advanced traction protocols, active therapeutic movement, which can help speed rehabilitation of targeted muscle groups.

 

As for continuing post graduate education Dr. Lawrence focused his efforts on the emerging field of clinical neuroscience.  

 

In 2011, he became certified as a Diplomate of the American Chiropractic Neurology Board after attending the Carrick Institute for Post Graduate Studies.  In 2013 the American College of Functional Neurology granted him status as a Fellow of the American College of Functional Neurology, further rounding out his education in Clinical Neuroscience.

 

Clinical neuroscience is the newest, state-of-the-art diagnostic and treatment technique drawing from the fields of neurophysiology, psychology, neurology and nutrition.  This leading-edge field brings new hope to the sick of all ages that have failed to find relief in the present system. 

 

In 2015 Dr. Lawrence was granted status as a Fellow of the American Board of Brain Injury Rehabilitation after completing over 400 hours in mild traumatic brain injury and vestibular therapy at the Carrick Institute of Graduate Studies; as well as Grand Rounds for concussion diagnosis and management at the Carrick Brain Centre in Atlanta, GA.

 

“When I committed to serving those with mild traumatic brain injuries, I realized that I needed to pursue the most in-depth training available in this area,” says Dr. Lawrence.  “Although it will always be a work in progress, it is gratifying to see injured individuals  regain their lives with the skill set I have been fortunate enough to attain.”

 

Adding to the growing body of evidence supporting the positive outcomes associated with clinical neuroscience, Dr. Lawrence has had two abstracts accepted for publication in the journal Frontiers in Neurology in February 2016:

 

“NOVEL BRAIN REHABILITATION PROGRAM REDUCES POST CONCUSSION SYMPTOMS IN A 45 YEAR OLD FEMALE”

 

“REDUCTION OF PALATAL MYOCLONUS WITH NOVEL BRAIN REHABILITATION TREATMENT”

 

In addition, he has authored the world’s first referenced, educational poster on concussions, which is used in doctor’s offices around the world. (www.neurologymedia.com)

WHY DOES IT TAKE SO LONG FOR MY BRAIN INJURY TO HEAL?

Approximately 85% of mild traumatic brain injuries resolve within 2 – 3 weeks after the trauma.
