Elite Specialty Care provides diagnosis to treatment, and our neurosurgeons and neurologists in Clifton NJ are committed to designing minimally invasive and non-invasive treatment plans based on the unique needs of each individual patient and their family. Our physicians test various aspects of the nervous system, including impaired function of reflexes, sensation, muscle strength, balance, arm and leg movement, vision, memory, speech, language, and cognitive abilities.
Injury or trauma to the brain can result for many reasons. Typically, traumatic brain injuries result from motor vehicle accidents, falls, assaults, sports-related injury, and proximity to explosions/blast injuries in which the head is struck which is the most common type of traumatic brain injury. However, other brain injuries, such as those caused by a cerebral vascular accident, insufficient oxygen, poisoning, or infection, can cause similar deficits. A concussion is a mild TBI. Symptoms of a TBI can be mild, moderate, or severe, depending on the extent of the damage to the brain. A person with a mild TBI may remain conscious or may experience a loss of consciousness for a few seconds or minutes. Elite Specialty Care provides a full spectrum of brain injury rehabilitation treatment, including programs for stroke, mild traumatic brain injury/concussion, and traumatic brain injury. Our personalized treatment focuses on independence, rebuilding life skills, and helping patients return to a meaningful life. Intensive, multidisciplinary, and tailored to each patient’s needs, ESC’s approach is goal oriented for every patient that we serve. A highly trained staff will help each person maximize the rehabilitation experience to achieve their objectives. Anyone with signs of moderate or severe TBI should receive medical attention as soon as possible. Because little can be done to reverse the initial brain damage caused by trauma, medical personnel try to stabilize an individual with TBI and focus on preventing further injury.
