Following a brain injury we may find that skills and abilities that once came naturally to us, now are difficult for us. In the process we may find ourselves frustrated and discouraged. We may find ourselves wanting to give up. But there is good news. By staying committed to the process we can learn to compensate in ways that will work for us to accomplish those skills. We can learn new skills or relearn old skills. We can learn to combine those skills with other skills to create skill sets. We can learn to use those skills and skill sets to accomplished what we thought was out of our reach.
Little by little we can achieve what we never dreamed possible. In the process we can begin to celebrate successes as we are learn / relearn skill and skill sets.
In today’s article I would like to share with you some thing that has helped me to learn new skill sets. Through learning these skills I have been able to use these skills in other areas of my life. In the process of applying those skills to other areas of my life, my quality of life and well-being have improved. My quality of life and well-being has been enhanced.
Through staying committed to the process of learning and relearning, little by little; I have been able to celebrate small successes. As a result I have been able to develop confidence in those areas of my life.
In this video presentation I share what has helped me to achieve what I never thought was possible. In this video presentation I share what I have been able to accomplish through using the principle of neuroplasticity. Using the principle of neuroplasticity to create new neural pathways and brain reorganization. Create new neural pathways and brain re organization through repetitive mirrored movements on both my dominant and non-dominant sides of my body. In my experience the benefits of neuroplasticity have through the discipline and commitment to the process.
As explained in MedicineNet.com, I had been using the principle or concept of neuroplasticity:
Neuroplasticity allows the neurons (nerve cells) in the brain to compensate for injury and disease. To adjust their activities in response to new situations or to changes in their environment. Brain reorganization takes place by mechanisms such as “axonal sprouting” in which undamaged axons grow new nerve endings. Grow new nerve endings to reconnect neurons whose links were injured or severed. Undamaged axons can also sprout nerve endings and connect with other undamaged nerve cells. In the process, form new neural pathways to accomplish a needed function.
