CNS provides COVID related brain injuries & commemorates 40th anniversary of advanced care to brain injury and stroke patients
24 September 2020 -

Traumatic medical company Centre for Neuro Skills (CNS) revealed on Wednesday that COVID-19 has afflicted about 7m Americans and some may experience neurological complications from the virus, which may include stroke, encephalitis and respiratory distress.

COVID and its aftermath have created a new need for the work and CNS has been providing brain rehabilitation services for 40 years and has therapies to address memory loss, agitation and attention deficits associated with the infection, said CEO and founder Dr Mark Ashley.

This year, the company is celebrating its 40th anniversary with two new video series: "Patient Stories of Independence" demonstrating that rehabilitation is possible after acute care as well as recognizing longtime staff in "40 Years of Hope, Healing and Heart."

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) notes that more than 795,000 Americans suffer a stroke each year. The CDC reports that acute care and rehabilitation of brain injury patients in the United States costs USD9bn to USD10bn per year.
