Neurofeedback is not only an effective treatment after a concussion but can also help capture normal brain activity before a traumatic brain event occurs. At MyBrainDR, many athletes come in for a preseason baseline qEEG. This allows us to document their brainwave activity, creating an accurate comparison point for future scans after the potentially injurious incident. Call us today to schedule a preseason qEEG!

Is Neurofeedback Therapy a clinically proven treatment for concussions and TBI’s?
Yes, Neurofeedback Therapy is a clinically proven treatment for concussions and TBI’s.
There are many research studies that show positive support for neurofeedback as a treatment for concussions and traumatic brain injuries. Please see a few examples below and don’t hesitate to contact MyBrainDr for additional information and studies.
Quantitative EEG Neurometric Analysis-Guided Neurofeedback Treatment in Postconcussion Syndrome (PCS): Forty Cases. How Is Neurometric Analysis Important for the Treatment of PCS and as a Biomarker?
“In this clinical case series, the efficacy of quantitative EEG-guided neurofeedback in 40 subjects diagnosed with PCS was investigated. Overall improvement was seen in all the primary (Symptom Assessment-45 Questionnaire, Clinical Global Impressions Scale, Hamilton Depression Scale) and secondary measures (Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory, Test of Variables for Attention).”
“The Neuroguide Traumatic Brain Index for the group also showed a decrease. Thirty-nine subjects were followed up long-term with an average follow-up length of 3.1 years (CI = 2.7-3.3). All but 2 subjects were stable and were off medication. Overall neurofeedback treatment was shown to be effective in this group of subjects studied.”
Evaluation of differentiated Neurotherapy programs for a patient after severe TBI and long termcoma using event-related potentials.
“The rTMS program produced larger physiological and behavioral changes than did relative beta training. A combination of different neurotherapeutical approaches (such as neurofeedback, rTMS, tDCS) can be suggested for similar severe cases of TBI. ERPs can be used to assess functional brain changes induced by neurotherapeutical programs.”
