Neuroplasticity, also known as neural plasticity, or brain plasticity, is the inherent capacity of the brain and nervous system to modify, change and adapt over time through growth and reorganization. Remarkably, the brain has the capacity to reorganize pathways, create new connections, and even create new neurons.
The brain’s malleability, or the ability to be “shaped.”
Neurons that are used often develop stronger connections and neurons that are rarely or never used will eventually die. This is how the brain can adapt to the changing environment: by developing new connections and eliminating weak ones. When it comes to physical health, neuroplasicity plays an important role, strengthening areas where function is lost or has declined, or allowing recovery from strokes and traumatic brain injuries.
According to Neufit, the creator of the Neubie electrical stimulation device used in Neuromuscular Therapy sessions at FX Spine & Performance Center, “Neuroplastic change does take time. However, we have found that when integrating direct current from the Neubie + incorporating techniques from the NeuFit Method, we are able to tap into the nervous system to guide positive neuroplastic change and help patients achieve these changes much quicker than in traditional rehab!”
