Newly Published Medical Research Confirms The Efficacy Of Perispinally Administered Etanercept As A Traumatic Brain Injury Treatment

brainNeurological Recovery Guide and Neurological Wellness Center have been facilitating recovery from TBI since 2010.This research published in the Journal BMC Neuroscience and available online finds; “The TBI induced cerebral ischemia, neurological motor deficits,and increased numbers of microglia-TNF-alpha double positive cells and increased TNF-alpha levels in the injured brain were all significantly attenuated by etanercept therapy.” Rolando Hernandez M.D. a neurosurgeon with Neurological Wellness Center states; “This research elucidates the neurological mechanisms that enable improvements in walking ability, arm movement,speech, mood, and reductions in spasticity that we see in the patients we have treated with perispinally administered Enbrel brand etanercept. The treatment protocol utilized by Neurological Wellness Center was pioneered by Edward Tobinick M.D. in 2006 and described in Expert Reviews of Neurotherapeutics.

“TBI results in a self-perpetuating cycle of inflammation in the brain. This excess inflammation persists for years or even decades after the injury, This excess inflammation contributes to a portion of the many impairments our patients experience. Perispinally administered Enbrel reduces this inflammation in the brain, facilitating a recovery of function,” stated Rolando Hernandez M.D. “Many individuals with TBI also suffer from severe depression. We encourage our clients to take the Oxford Happiness Questionnaire prior to treatment. This simple survey is available free and is automatically scored for you. Our clients are encouraged to take this survey 10 days and 30 days after the initiation of perispinal Enbrel treatment. The vast majority report improved happiness scores. I believe perispinally administered Enbrel may one day be used therapeutically as a severe depression treatment, ” states Dr. Rolando Hernandez.

“Perispinal Enbrel as a TBI treatment has many attributes. (1) The therapeutic window is wide. A person who’s injury occurred a decade ago or even longer may still benefit. (2) The treatment is short term, involving just two to eight injections over a period of eight to forty days, yet the benefits are long lasting. (3) The dosage of Enbrel needed to achieve these results is quite low compared to the FDA recommendations for moderate plaque psoriasis. The FDA protocol for moderate plaque psoriasis calls for 24 injections totaling 1200 mg of Enbrel over a three month period, followed by weekly injections for life. Whereas a person with moderate to severe TBI would need a maximum of 8 injections totaling 200 mg of Enbrel in this period and would be unlikely to need even a single booster injection.injection. (4) The recovery, improvements can begin to occur in minutes and can build with subsequent injections over a four to eight week period,” stated Dr. Hernandez.

In order for injections of Enbrel to be effective they must be administered to the soft fatty tissue in the back of the neck between cervical vertebrae C-5 and C-6. This simple subcutaneous injection, performed with a fine gauge ½ inch needle, is referred to as a perispinal injection. Neurological Wellness Center offers a complete two-hour course on Alzheimer’s treatment, stroke treatment and traumatic brain injury treatment covering all aspects of perispinal injection technique at their Neurological Wellness Center in Managua Nicaragua.

For many, flying to the Neurological Wellness Center in Nicaragua to receive this personalized training is an enormous expense and inconvenience. To overcome this problem, Neurological Wellness Center, under the direction of Augusto Ramirez, M.D., created Perispinal Enbrel Step-By-Step Instructional Video and accompanying e-book. This 24-minute video and 37-page e-book are now available online at
