The Mission of Our Colorado TBI Clinics
Our mission is to leave no traumatic brain injury (TBI) untreated. We strive to regenerate and rebuild the brain function of our TBI patients in Colorado and beyond. When there is nowhere left to turn, we provide hope.
At TBI Therapy, we aim to strengthen the brain and body with what they need: oxygen, nutrition, and care. Focused on recovery through neuro-regeneration and adjunctive therapies, we work to proliferate the TBI Therapy Protocol at treatment centers throughout the United States and the world.
