TBI, STROKE, CONCUSSION, & TIA
“In cases of TBI, neurofeedback is probably better than any medication or supplement."
--Richard Brown, MD; Associate Clinical Professor of Psychiatry, Columbia, College of Physicians and Surgeons, New York, NY
When the brain suffers damage, often slower brainwaves — delta and theta — rush to the site of the injury to begin repairing. These are the brainwaves babies, toddlers and youth spend much time in while their brains are developing because their brains are developing. These slow waves are the waves of angiogenesis, neuroplasticity, and neurogenesis. Thus, it makes perfect sense that the brain would produce these waves when trying to regenerate damaged tissue.
However, the patterns of delta and theta become locked, entrenched, and habitual, preventing growth out of the concussed/stroke/TBI disabled state. The use of neurostimulation and
neurofeedback can create profound shifts in the ability to recuperate and recover from your injury.
With neurotherapy, we can target train specific areas of the brain that relate to speech (for example, Broca’s or Wernicke’s area) movement (such as the sensory motor strip), pattern
recognition, spatial awareness, etc. We can lift the fog that ensues post-concussion by restoring the brain’s functioning to what it was. By reinforcing the frequencies and patterns we want to see the brain generate, we can help ease you back into your normal ways of being.
