How can therapy help?
People suffering from concussions often have higher rates of depression and anxiety and can benefit from different types of therapy. Psychotherapy can help address the mental health concerns of post concussion syndrome. Neurofeedback helps the brain to heal naturally and works to aid communication between specific areas of your brain that may have sustained trauma from a concussion. Neurofeedback is an all-natural, non-invasive way to train the brain more efficiently by monitoring brain activity and teaching the brain to self-regulate. In conjunction with a treatment plan from your primary care physician and other brain health specialists, psychotherapy and neurofeedback can get you on the road to recovery from your concussion.
