  • Facial Palsy with stroke pattern weakness below the left eye and above the right eye
  • Speech Difficulty
  • Left-sided weakness of entire body
  • Surgery scar with staples in his scalp right-side

ABSTRACT

SITUATION

In April 2007, a 51-year-old male four days after aneurysm surgery was in the intensive care unit. The patient’s family was told that a baseball-sized aneurysm was removed from the patient’s skull and that, if he survives, he will be neurologically impaired physically and mentally. The family was also told that if the patient lives, he will need a full-time caregiver to attend to his needs.

PRESENTATION

The patient presented with a right-sided stroke pattern, left-sided facial palsy, and muscle weakness on the entire left side of his body. He complained of discomfort from the catheter. The patient’s speech was weak and slurred. He had a large scar, riddled with surgical staples, and shaped like a question mark starting at his hairline following the temporal bone to the top of the ear and then downward toward the front of the ear.

REHABILITATION

The patient’s family started using the GRT LITE™ directly over the surgery site while he was still in ICU. The GRT LITE™ was used constantly by the patient throughout his recovery. The patient received five Quantum Neurology™ rehabilitation sessions in four days. He received Cranial Nerve and Motor rehabilitation, as well as G-POI™ and Allergy desensitization.

OUTCOME

The patient’s staples were removed seven days after the surgery because his scar was fully healed. Eight days after his surgery, he left the hospital. He was able to walk without assistance; he had zero neurological deficits and had regained full speech ability. He had also rehabilitated full motor strength and function to his face and his body. The patient regained his stamina over the next few weeks and began working five weeks after the surgery.

I feel that it is important to mention that the patient’s entire nervous system had already been strengthened with Quantum Neurology™ Rehabilitation before his aneurysm. I feel that this allowed his nervous system to withstand the stress of his aneurysm and speed up his recovery.

FOLLOW-UP

October 27, 2007 (6 months later)

The patient has recovered fully from the aneurysm and surgery. He has made some lifestyle changes in diet and exercise. He has reduced his weight by 40 pounds. He has enjoyed two family vacations, the first to a water park and the second to Disney World. His family reported that he outpaced and outlasted everyone else in the family. The patient directly attributes his neurological rehabilitation to Quantum Neurology™ and the GRT LITE™.

ATTENTION: Quantum Neurology™ Rehabilitation is not a treatment or a cure; it is Neurological Rehabilitation. Doctors often use the word treatment to describe their interaction with a patient, not to imply a cure for a patient’s Injury, Illness or Condition. Quantum Neurology™ Rehabilitation uses traditional and unique neurological evaluations to perform before and after validation of neurological changes. Even though you may share the same symptoms as a patient mentioned on this website; each patient and their injury, illness or condition is unique. As with any form of rehabilitation; there is no way to predict or guarantee how you or anyone else will respond to neurological rehabilitation. Your results may vary.
