A Concussion Can Cause Permanent Damage to Your Brain—Neurofeedback May Help

sitting at tables with headacheWhen you suffer a concussion, the effects can be wide-ranging and long-lasting—even permanent. Symptoms vary depending on where on the head you were hit, the severity of the blow, your age, and a variety of other factors. In fact, the same hit to the same area can cause different symptoms in different people, and scientists do not yet understand why.

Common Concussion Symptoms

Symptoms change over time, sometimes making it confusing to diagnose concussion if you didn’t seek care immediately after the blow to your head. Some common symptoms include:

  • Brain fog
  • Focus problems
  • Headaches
  • Lack of energy
  • Memory lapses
  • Vision problems
These issues can make it difficult or impossible for you to do your job, enjoy time with your family, or participate in your favorite recreational activities.

How Neurofeedback Works

With a concussion, your brain may be stuck in incorrect brainwave patterns—it’s these patterns that often cause the symptoms you’re feeling. In addition, your brain may not be receiving optimal blood flow which carries the oxygen your brain requires to function optimally. Neurofeedback retrains the brain to return to its normal brainwave patterns, and assists the brain in restoring proper blood flow to the brain, naturally and without drugs.

We place electrodes on your head; these are attached to a computer. Then, you just sit back and enjoy a movie on the computer. When your brainwaves are correct, the movie plays. When your brain slips into incorrect patterns, the movie dims depending on how far off your brain is from optimal. This tells the brain it made a mistake. Your brain learns which pattern is the right one.

Brain Mapping

At Parker Integrative Health, we tailor care to your needs by starting with a thorough intake process that includes complete brain mapping. This can show us which areas of your brain are affected, and how our treatment can assist. Mapping helps us correlate the symptoms you’re experiencing with the specific areas in your brain affected.

By retraining your brain to operate correctly, neurofeedback helps alleviate symptoms of concussion and restore optimal function, so you can enjoy your life to the fullest.
