dc.description.abstractTraumatic brain injuries have a major effect on your physical and mental health, with damage to the brain leading to long term complications. Supportive Living created the Neuro-Fitness Wellness Program for patients with traumatic brain injuries. Exercise plans are created to accommodate each participant based on their needs and goals. Participants that were in a wheelchair were able to work on postural training. Posture is important because it affects the neck, shoulders, and back. Specific exercises programs were developed and implemented to work on posture. Over the course of twelve weeks, there was a dramatic change in the participants' strength and confidence, leading to better physical and mental health.
