Pyramid of Neuro-Rehabilitation by Emily Kalambaheti, DC, DACNB, FACFN

Pyramid of Neuro-Rehabilitation:

The pyramid of neuro-rehabilitation is a way of assessing and treating people with brain injuries from the most foundational and fundamental aspects to the most complex. The three foundational levels include the autonomic nervous system which encompasses the “fight or flight” and “rest and digest” systems, neurological reflexes that affect muscle tone, perception of movement, and spatial orientation, and thirdly primitive reflexes. Higher functions, like gross or fine motor movement and behavior, need a strong foundation to work properly. Learn how and why rehabilitating the foundation may improve the outcomes of other therapies.
