HEAD/ BRAIN INJURY
Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), concussions, and Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE) are varieties of head injury, whose occurrence is becoming increasingly common in the modern world. According to the CDC, nearly 3 million people suffer from some kind of brain injury in the United States, which imposes around an $80 billion economic burden, in both direct and indirect costs.
For a head injury to be significant enough to impact brain function, it does not always take the form of severe accidents. Brain injury can and does occur in some of the most popular sports and physical activities, making children and adolescents especially susceptible.
Brain injury of any sort can go undiagnosed, and even unnoticed for years. The progression of damage that even a minor head injury can precipitate, commonly into more pathological changes many years or decades later. This is known to produce symptoms of depression, anxiety disorders, and poor cognitive performance. Since the brain and nervous system influence every other system in the body, the implications of brain injury can actually span the entire body, and include dysregulation of immune and digestive function. This can be a huge problem because treatment for any dysfunction can be incomplete if the underlying driver—brain injury—is not being addressed.
Neurofeedback and QEEG is the best technological advantage to identify any possible trauma that the brain may have sustained, and then improve the function of sites that were impacted by it. One of the most common markers of a previous head injury, is the presence of excess slow brain waves, especially in the Delta range. Among the other functions in which Delta brain waves play an important role, sleep quality is one of the most common results reported from undergoing neurofeedback training. The function of sleep allows the brain to clean the metabolic waste of normal daily function, and heal any damage that it may become exposed to. In the field of EEG science, Delta brain wave activity has had a clinically significant relationship to the quality and depth of sleep.
At Brain Excel we deliver cutting edge tools to help you identify which parts of the brain impaired or irregular performance, and train them through video and auditory reinforcement. Over the span of a minimum of 30 sessions, brain wave activity is able to be steered toward a more healthy function, and maintain those improvements well beyond the completion of neurofeedback training.
