Stroke/Minor Traumatic Brain Injury (Concussion)

Stroke may have consequences for a variety of brain functions. Neurofeedback training can assist with the recovery due to specific loss which the person has suffered, and can also be effective with the secondary symptoms such as malaise, poor sleep, irritability, depression, anxiety and so on. Neurofeedback is helpful in the long-term recovery of function.

Neurofeedback in the treatment of minor traumatic brain injury has also shown that the training assists in reducing symptoms associated with this condition such as: loss of energy, headaches and chronic pain, dizziness, memory impairment; difficulty concentrating, anxiety, depression and mood swings, sleep disturbances and visual perceptual problems. Clinical experience has shown that significant further recovery can be elicited with Neurofeedback training even after other therapies have reach a plateau.
