Restore Your Brain’s Function
Whether caused by an auto or bicycle accident or injury from sports, recreation or military service, concussions can cause permanent changes to the brain. This can cause cognitive challenges, such as the inability to concentrate, focus properly, and can lead to significant memory, sleep disturbances, and mood changes. The Carlton Neurofeedback Center can help individuals who are impacted by brain injuries to help them improve their function and set them on a course for restoring their health.
Questions & Answers About Concussions & Traumatic Brain Injuries
What is a concussion?
A concussion is a mild traumatic brain injury (TBI) caused by impact to the head or impact to the body that causes the head and brain to be shaken. Such a jolt can cause the brain to be tossed around or be twisted in the skull. As a result, brain cells and neural pathways can become damaged. In addition, the injury can create chemical changes inside the brain. The extent of damage caused by a concussion varies, as do symptoms. Some people exhibit severe signs, such as losing consciousness or being unable to remember what had happened before the incident. Typically concussion symptoms include a difficulty concentrating, remembering information, nausea, blurred vision, and headaches. Mild concussions generally resolve on their own after a few days of rest. However, a severe concussion can create permanent physical changes in the brain.
How can neurofeedback training help repair physical changes in the brain caused by a concussion?
Severe concussions require special treatment to physically repair damaged cells and restore cognitive function to full capacity. Neurofeedback offers a highly effective, non-invasive and non-drug treatment method for many cases to restore function, and encourage the brain to set up new neural pathways to replace what may have been damaged. During neurofeedback training, the brain is exercised.The specific areas that are targeted during therapy experience a change in blood flow, promoting long term healing. Over time as damaged areas of the brain heal, normal balanced function returns.
What kind of results can be achieved with neurofeedback training in eliminating concussion symptoms?
Our clients report – and studies have shown – that neurofeedback training can improve memory, the ability to focus and concentrate, as well as decreasing routine headaches associated with chronic concussion symptoms. Even improved IQ scores have been noted with individuals who have received neurofeedback after sustaining a concussion. Additionally, as an individual’s brain heals, he or she can also experience relief from the anxiety and depression that often accompanies concussion injuries.
