Effective therapy for head trauma & sports injuries
Safe, noninvasive, drug-free therapy for head & brain injuries.
You have probably heard about all the concussions lately in professional sports. Football players are especially vulnerable because of the violence and velocity involved in their sport. Fortunately, there is new hope for people who experience head trauma and post-concussion syndrome. EEG neurofeedback treatment allows us to directly intervene in the central nervous system damage. We can help regulate the abnormal brainwave activity associated with symptoms such as headache, memory loss, depression, sensitivity to sound and light, loss of concentration, personality changes, learning difficulties and even seizures.
Studies have shown that EEG neurofeedback training leads to increased energy and decreased depression and temper outbursts. As treatment progresses, patients experience a decrease in sensitivity to sound and light and improved attention spans. Vascular headaches and dizziness disappear and patients even report increased libido. In one study, 60% of patients also reported that they regained their short-term memory.
Dr. O’Donnell is board-certified in EEG neurofeedback. He and his team have significantly helped athletes and others with traumatic brain injuries return to function.
