When treating concussive symptoms, any good doctor will tell you that rest is a requirement for a recovery regimen. However, few know that neurofeedback training can also be helpful in supporting the brain to recover alongside a doctor’s care and plan. Right after a mild brain injury, doing neurofeedback can give the brain an opportunity to see where it needs to heal itself and continue in that vain.
It's common for clients doing neurofeedback for TBI & concussion recovery that they'll have dramatic results immediately. Their brains are craving a mirror to see the remaining damage to repair and those brains go right to work re-wiring. As one of our clients in NYC stated:
"The session was simply amazing. I can't remember ever feeling so relaxed. Absolutely love the training and looking forward to learning more."

NEUROFEEDBACK FOR BRAIN INJURY
In this video, Gail talks about the benefits she's experienced from doing NeurOptimal® Neurofeedback training after suffering from a brain injury.

From our brain injury/concussion clients
“Aside from rest, neurofeedback is quite possibly the only treatment that quickly facilitated recovery from a severe concussion I had six months ago. ”
"After the first four neurofeedback sessions I slept very deeply and felt noticeably better upon awakening. There was a very marked synchronicity in my sense perceptions and body movement when I walked onto the street after those first couple sessions. After about five sessions I started to feel noticeably better. My daily life started to resemble a more normal pattern of daily activities with even some artistic work in the evenings. I can now do things on the weekends without worrying that I might feel sick or have to sleep most of the day.
– James, 5 NeurOptimal Neurofeedback Sessions
I sustained a concussion recently and could not believe how out of synch and disoriented I felt. I spent four days feeling uncoordinated, fatigued and dizzy before a friend pointed me in the direction of Nuerofeedback Training in Union Square. It was like night and day. After my first session I felt significantly more grounded and centered, more in control of the connection between my mind and body. I was so relieved as he side effects of the concussion were quite scary!
The experience itself was so relaxing, professional, and uplifted. The technician was incredibly knowledgeable about brain injuries which was such a relief because I felt like I had no real information about my injury prior to our conversion. I felt much less scared and relieved to have a path to treatment that was doable and effective.
I've since continued my work with nuerofeedback training both because I so enjoy the staff and the caring feel of the office in general and because I've seen such improvements in other areas of my health. For instance my allergies are calmed, my insomnia has become manageable and in general I feel like my mind is more clear and more organized.
I highly recommend Neurofeedback Training to anyone looking for help with head injuries but also those who want to feel more focused and relaxed. This is the place! Convenient location, super friendly knowledgeable staff, wonderful relaxing experience, great benefits.

The Use of NeurOptimal® With a Young Adult With an Acute TBI - A Case Study -Dr. Joan-Marie Lartin, Ph.D., RN and Alan Bachers, Ph.D. This is a case study using clinical, NeurOptimal® baseline and anecdotal data. Dr. Lartin’s 22 year old son Brian survived a life-threatening TBI in April of 2012 and had more than 70 sessions of NeurOptimal® in a year. The contribution of NeurOptimal® to his recovery is discussed. Brian made an essentially complete recovery.
