The BART Foundation presents a new webinar series, Alternative Therapies for Brain Injury Survivors
This series explores safe alternative therapies for brain injuries with leading practitioners. Topics include hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT), craniosacral therapy, photobiomodulation (LED light therapy), neurofeedback, the PoNS device, and nutraceutical supplementation. The BART Foundation hopes these lively, interactive webinars encourage attendees to raise questions, express concerns and learn about cutting-edge approaches to treating TBI/ABI.
Webinar #1: Thursday, November 17, 2022, at 7 PM EST. 45 minutes
Dr. Perry Perretz, D.O., Physiatrist, Integrative Osteopathic Physician, Redding, CT. Dr. Perretz will speak about how increasing oxygen availability is responsible for healing in most alternative therapies including the role of HBOT and neuroplasticity.
Dr. Perretz began his practice in acupuncture in 1987. After eight years of practice in eastern medicine, he saw that many patients were falling through the cracks in our healthcare system. Inspired to serve people better as part of the medical establishment, he graduated from the University of New England College of Osteopathic Medicine in 1999. His private practice, called Advanced Pain Solutions, in Redding, Connecticut is dedicated to the treatment of musculoskeletal pain, featuring an eclectic mix of osteopathy, prolotherapy, acupuncture, and neural therapy. He is the past president of the North American Academy of Neural Therapy and sits on the board of the BART Foundation.
Webinar #2: December TBD, 2022, at 7 PM EST. 45 minutes
We will announce this date soon! Joel Goldstein, a parent of a TBI survivor, author of No Stone Unturned, and executive director of the BART Foundation will speak about what’s new in safe alternatives for brain injury survivors. This session is designed to help survivors and caregivers navigate the confusing and potentially dangerous jungle of so-called alternative therapies. Joel has written for Brainline.org., Exceptional Parent Magazine, Adoption Today, Caregiver Space, and Rehab & Community Care Medicine. In addition, he has spoken about brain injury on NPR, public television, and to audiences ranging from state-level brain injury alliances to medical societies and the New York State Assembly. Joel will be joined by his son and TBI survivor, Bart Goldstein.
