When a person suffers a concussion, they usually recover within one week to three months. During that time, symptoms commonly include chronic headaches, dizziness, insomnia, anxiety, impaired memory, brain fog, and changes in personality. However, some people develop post-concussion syndrome, in which these symptoms persist for multiple months or even years, causing significant negative effects on their quality of life.
While there is no cure for concussions, neurofeedback therapy is a proven method for treating the symptoms of post-concussion syndrome. This therapy can effectively train your brain to work better and overcome the worst effects of the concussion.
How Brain Mapping Helps the Brain Recover
Neurofeedback therapy is a non-invasive treatment method that uses qEEG brain mapping to capture a snapshot of your brain to identify areas that are out of sync. This snapshot provides valuable information about how your brain functions and is used to reproduce healthy neural pathways and connections. The bio-sensors used in brain mapping do not send anything into your brain; rather, they pick up brain signals and produce feedback that helps you train your brain to work better.
Along with brain mapping, we use advancements in neuroscience to develop a plan to improve your cognition and overall brain function so you can return to a healthy, functioning life. For best results, it’s advised to start neurofeedback therapy as soon as possible following a concussion or similar traumatic brain injury. But we’ve also had success treating those suffering from symptoms for years. Using this therapy, it’s possible to improve concentration, stabilize behavior, and reduce headaches.
