Toronto Concussion & TBI Treatment
When a Traumatic Injury Breaks the System Down
How are we different?
NIb3 has developed a revolutionary Concussion Program in order to reduce concussion and post-concussion symptoms.
We customize a sophisticated training plan that addresses stimulation and normalization of brain activity, which facilitates proper recovery of the damaged areas within the nervous system.
By this process we correct instability in the specific neural networks and promote coherency of the global dysregulation in the neural firing patterns.
Designing a unique plan for quick and effective results requires a comprehensive assessment.
Our assessments include:
- 2D & 3D brain mapping
- balance (vestibular system) evaluation
- quantification of eye movement
- a battery of neuropsychological and neurophysiological tests
- measurements of your psycho-physiological profile and
- an assessment of your nutritional/metabolic state.
Shortly after the assessment is complete, an intensive, personalized rehabilitation program will be initiated, allowing your brain maximum recovery.

What is a Concussion?
A concussion is the most common TBI or Traumatic Brain Injury that a person may experience. A concussion occurs when there has been an impact to the head and it causes your brain to jolt and in some cases, it actually moves around. When this happens, it can cause bruising to the brain and injury to the nerves and blood vessels.
It is more common in children but adults can experience as well. Children experience concussions more frequently as they are constantly growing and their heads can be disproportioned at certain times from their body.
Types of Concussions
There are three different types of concussions from mild to severe. Your concussion is ranked on the symptoms that you are experience and the more severe the concussion, the longer the symptoms may last.
- Mild Concussion – with a mild form, the person does not lose consciousness and the symptoms only last around a few hours. They may have a slight headache and feel dizzy during this period of time.
- Moderate Concussion – with a moderate form, the person still does not lose consciousness but the symptoms may last a full day or a couple days.
- Severe Concussion – with a severe form, the person may lose consciousness and symptoms can lasts for weeks.
Symptoms of a Concussion
Symptoms of a concussion can vary from physical, mental and emotional. Determining what the signs of a concussion are, is important in developing the right form of treatment to remediate.
Common Symptoms are:

What is Brain Injury Rehab Therapy
In Canada, there are 165,000 serious brain injuries a year, with some of the leading causes being motor vehicle accidents, workplace injuries, and physical activities/contact sports (Conte Jaswal, 2017). Concussions and brain injuries of varying degree can have lasting symptoms post-injury such as light and noise sensitivity, dizziness, headaches, blurry vision, and tinnitus to name only a few (Mayo Clinic, 2017). Most post brain injury rehabilitation in Toronto focuses on relearning and teaching compensation mechanisms at a physical level. This method only addresses the surface issues as opposed to the root problems at a neurophysiological level. Studies have demonstrated that clients who participated in neurofeedback treatments had improvements in symptoms such as attention, impulse control, processing speed, short-term memory, and mood (Gray, S. N., 2017). At NIb3 in Toronto we focus our brain injury rehabilitation on the underlying problems in a non-invasive, holistic way. We specialize in vestibular rehabilitation techniques such as gaze stabilization and specific brain stem stimulation, biofeedback training involving HRV and mindfulness based meditation, and neurofeedback training through 1, 2, and 4 channels EEG and 19-channel qEEG.
