BRAIN HEALTH &
PERFORMANCE

Overcome hurdles and take your work, sports, relationships and life to the next level

HOW WE CAN HELP YOU

At Brain Hub, our team of leading neurological, physical, mental and nutritional health practitioners will work with you to identify your goals and road-blocks, and work with you to improve your brain function so you can achieve more with greater enjoyment. Our in-clinic programs and at-home support can be adapted to the busy executive, traveling sports person, time-poor parent or someone based outside of Sydney.

TECHNOLOGY & TECHNIQUES

We use innovative technologies and brain-based assessments to uncover the underlying causes that may be holding you back from reaching your potential. Objective metrics in baseline data and subsequent re-assessments are necessary to navigate through care, ensuring we’re reaching your key performance indicators and goals. These include brain-mapping, neuromodulation, eye movement, balance and co-ordination, fatigue and endurance, focus and concentration, sleep quality, reaction time, memory and much more.

COMMON CONDITIONS & SYMPTOMS WE CARE FOR

We have helped many patients that have struggled with emotional, physical and nutritional hurdles in their life, this has included:

THE PROCESS TO YOUR SOLUTION

ASSESSMENT Up to 3 hour exam to accurately measure aspects of brain function
We take the time to explore your health history and the reasons that led you to visit us. We may perform a range of physical, neurological and mental health assessments, using the latest technology and knowledge, as well as arrange additional tests if needed, to identify the cause of your health concern.
REPORT An explanation of your assessment results in plain-english

We take the time to explain what we’ve found, what it means to you, and discuss the best options to help you on your recovery.

RECOVERY PROGRAM Our team-approach therapy program tailored to your goals

We provide tailored programs that can last several days to several weeks. They’re provided by our team of mental health, physical therapy, neuro-rehabilitation and nutritional practitioners, aimed at harnessing neuroplasticity to get you the result fast! We perform regular progress check-ups during your program to ensure we’re on track with your improvements and if any refinements to your care needs to be made.

RE-EVALUATE Re-assess key performance indicators of your recovery

At the end of your program, we perform a re-assessment, comparing your symptoms and objective test results from when you started. This allows us to measure your improvements and guides us on our next steps.

ONGOING SUPPORT Continued support from our team to improve your results

Support given following intensive programs, at-home program (tele-health) and in-clinic maintenance.

THE BRAIN HUB ASSESSMENT SYSTEMS

Successful outcomes start with accurate diagnosis. Assessment that considers as many ‘windows of brain function’, from neurological, physical, nutritional and mental health, will give us the most comprehensive and broad view of your condition and then direct us to make the best choices in treatment solutions.

COGNITIVE

Computerised screening for memory, attention and problem-solving, audio-motor integration with interactive metronome, brain mapping with quantitative electro-encephalogram (qEEG)

psychology

Perception and evaluation with scale and inventories, instrument verified

Ocular Motor

OCULAR MOTOR

Eye position and movement with video-nystagmography (VNG)

VESTIBULAR

Central and peripheral vestibular system with video head-impulse testing, subjective visual vertical, eye-movement and positional testing

AUTONOMIC

The autonomic nervous system evaluated by heart rate variability, vitals, tilt-table, pupillometry, and treadmill stress

COACHING

Values, strengths-based and goals-driven

PROPRIOCEPTIVE

Spinal, joint and muscle movement and control with coordination, computerised balance and body-awareness

SLEEP ANALYSIS

Using actigraphy we measure sleep quality, temperature and light exposure

NUTRITION

Metabolic and cellular health with functional medicine and genetic testing

WE’RE THE CLINIC FOR YOU

We see many patients that travel from regional, interstate and international areas, all seeking answers and solutions to their complex health problems. There is hope. We’re here to provide support before, during and after care, explain in plain english what is happening, and map out a clear path to your improvement in life.

FAQs

General

Whilst we can not guarantee success in every case, we do maximise our chances of helping you by providing care that is specifically designed for you. We approach every new patient the same – we start with a comprehensive examination, listening to you carefully and understanding your goals, explain in plain english our findings and recommend an individualised treatment plan specifically for you (based on over 20 years of experience).

Our goal is improve your assessment findings, so in turn it can improve your quality of life.

While most patients are kindly referred to our practice from allied and medical practitioners, a referral is not needed to see us. Simply call our clinic and speak to our receptionist, or click our Get Started button to schedule a complimentary 15 minutes phone call to see how we can help you.

We offer a unique blend of clinical experience, research-driven therapies, high-technology assessment and therapy equipment, and a passionate team of practitioners willing to work together, all within a healing setting.

Over the years, approximately 50% of our patients are from areas outside of Sydney, including interstate and international. Our treatment programs are perfectly suited to those travelling long distance to see us.

Post-Concussion

Typically we suggest as soon as possible. We will be able to offer support at any stage following a head injury, whether it be advice, therapy or referral for medical or emergency care.

There is good evidence to support obtaining a baseline function evaluation before a season starts, so if a concussion were to occur, we have a comparison to make and work towards returning to.

We can split the assessment in 2 parts, with a break in between so you can recharge. The break can be 1 hour to several days. We will discuss with you what is the most appropriate.

Brain fog is often a sign that your brain is running ‘in-efficiently’ and spending a lot of energy trying to functional and battling the injury. Once we help with the underlying dysfunction, coupled with nutritional and life-style support, we find that people report less brain fog.

Dysautonomia

We have had good success with POTS and similar dysautonomia conditions), provided the cardiovascular system has been checked and cleared by a Cardiologist. Our brain-based and metabolic approach, looks at nutritional, physical and rehabilitation therapies to help stabilise and support the autonomic nervous system.

We use the gold-standard and recognised test to help identify dysautonomia including, heart rate variability, tilt-table test, history taking, response to treatment, treadmill exertion test and assessment of vitals in different positions. A referral for medical evaluation may be made to rule out underlying cardiovascular conditions.

Migraine

Absolutely. We have designed a clinic with you and other environmental sensitive people in mind. We also have a ‘recovery room’ to rest peacefully in between your treatment sessions, away from the main reception area.

Performance Programs

Rather than scheduling 1-3 standard treatment sessions over an extended period of time (say 4-8 weeks), we offer patients (especially those travelling from outside of Sydney) the opportunity to condense your treatment into a short period of time, ranging from several days to 2 weeks (typically 1 week). After we perform our initial assessment and report of finding appointment, we then prescribe 3-4 treatment sessions per day, approximately 30-50 minutes each, over each day of the program. A break is provided in between each session, where you can either go for a walk, have a meal, or rest in our recovery room.

Our experience and the feedback from patients over the last 10 years has clearly pointed to greater benefits when patients undertake our intensive programs. Our thoughts suggest that when a patient (and their family) commit to the therapy program for many hours a day, for a short period of time (compared to spreading it over a 4-8 week period), their intention and focus is aimed at improving.

Generally, our programs are very well tolerated, even those with significant fatigue and environmental sensitivities. Once we perform our assessment, we apply a graded and progressive amount of treatment, matched to your capacity. We’re always observing and evaluating your response to care and ensuring we don’t over step your tolerance.
