Concussion and Traumatic Brain Injury
Have you suffered a concussion or traumatic brain injury from an accident?
Are your cognitive abilities or your behaviour changing?
Is your family telling you that you have changed?
Your concussion or injury changes the way your brain functions, resulting in altered brain patterns. Neurofeedback can help target altered brain activity and treat the symptoms of brain injuries, leading to a better quality of life for you and your family.
BRAIN INJURIES CAN HAVE DRAMATIC EFFECTS ON YOUR EVERYDAY LIFE
There are more than 1.5 million Canadians living with a brain injury. If you are one of these people, you might be experiencing memory problems, difficulty concentrating or sleeping, headaches, fatigue, balance problems, and increased sensitivity to light or sounds. Treatment for brain injuries varies depending on the symptoms, with most involving rehabilitation and medication. For some, the symptoms persist even with treatment, and many people have difficulties finding effective treatments to begin with.
TREATMENTS CAN INCLUDE A COMBINATION OF THE FOLLOWING:
- Psychotherapy (in person or virtual)
Neurofeedback and Traumatic Brian Injury
Neurofeedback is a non-invasive treatment alternative for traumatic brain injuries. Research shows that concussions and brain injuries alter different aspects of brain functioning, ranging from mild changes in electrical activity to changes in neural pathway communication to cell matter death. The aim of Neurofeedback is to modify these brain patterns for the brain to regain its health and improve its overall regulation and communicaiton.
WHAT TO EXPECT WITH NEUROFEEDBACK
Neurofeedback tackles a wide variety of symptoms and leads to an overall improvement of your quality of life. The treatment regulates either under- or over-arousal in the brain and promotes healthy communication between areas in your brain. Neurofeedback helps alleviate the symptoms caused by traumatic brain injuries, symptoms that impact your everyday routines and your relationships with the ones you love. Clients have experienced improvements in sleep, emotional regulation, learning, memory, attention, response accuracy, and overall health.
