Brain Injuries otherwise known as Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) are more common than most people think. The National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE) estimates that 1.4 million people present to the A&E each year for head injuries and about 500,000 people in the UK currently live with disabilities resulting from brain injury.
The majority of people think that a head injury is relevant only if you lose consciousness. According to Dr. Daniel Amen (an expert in SPECT brain imaging) even old, seemingly minor injuries can be seen on brain scans, even if you were wearing a helmet, and explain many of the symptoms patients experience.
Some symptoms may be: foggy head, lack of concentration, mood instability, anger management, coordination, memory issues, headaches.
Neurofeedback teaches the brain to establish new connections and to improve networks within the brain, therefore allowing for symptom management.
