Leslie Petsoff

Innova Brain Rehabilitation

www.InnovaBrain.com



An Innovative Solution to Complex Problems.  When you come to our center, your history and medical records will be reviewed before you even arrive. You will then be given an extremely thorough physical and neurological examination. Your doctor will prescribe a series of neurological tests, which will be performed on gold-standard equipment, to measure how your brain interacts with the environment. This includes assessments of: postural control, vestibular function, oculomotor integrity, reaction times, motor accuracy, neurological endurance, and neurocognitive function. Once our doctors have gathered all of the information pertaining to your case, they utilize their expertise and experience to determine the best treatment options for you, and whether there is a reasonable probability of improvement. If they do believe that the potential for improvement exists, you and your doctor will discuss your individualized treatment plan. Your clinical team will develop a plan that is exactly suited to your needs and will modify and adapt that plan in real-time. Our doctors’ treatments may include: vestibular rehabilitation, physiologic therapeutics, vision therapy, chiropractic manipulations, myofascial work, and nutraceutical supplementation. Once your clinical team has determined that your progress is stable, they will provide you with at-home exercise strategies to maintain and further develop your improvements. Your clinical team will also make recommendations for any follow-up treatment or assessment that may be indicated at this time.


In the end, our goal is to give each of our patients the highest degree of human function and autonomy. We want our patients to feel like they are performing at their maximum potential, and to live life without a feeling of dependence on healthcare providers.

Keeping floors, adhesives and concrete in harmony -, without failure is our major purpose. But if the buildings were built and the floors installed, without our supervision, and they have failed, we do the forensics examination and determine the cause or causes of the failure. We make sure they are properly corrected.


We have held dozens of educational seminars across the country for leading Architects, General Contractors, Flooring Contractors, and end users/Owners. Recently educational seminars have been given for MUNTERS Corporation and the Concrete Repair Institute.
