About mTBI

We employ qEEG and EEG biofeed­back to train indi­viduals to alter their brain­waves.

Mild trau­matic brain injury(mTBI) typi­cally occurs when the head is suddenly accel­er­ated and/or decel­er­ated during an acci­dent of some type. One does not need to expe­ri­ence uncon­scious­ness or a blow to the head. A severe whiplash situ­a­tion can cause the same kinds of twisting and shearing forces on the brain’s axons — the nerve fibers connecting one part of brain to another — as does a blow to the head. It is thought that these forces damage the connec­tions between nerve cells and possibly the conducting fibers them­selves, resulting in impair­ment of func­tion.

 

Mild trau­matic brain injury (mTBI) typ­i­cally occurs when the head is sud­denly accel­er­ated and/or decel­er­ated dur­ing an acci­dent of some type. It is often misunderstood that an accident of some type, or unconsciousness are the only correlations with head injury.

The neuroAgility Approach to mTBI

It is essen­tial to gather infor­ma­tion about func­tioning pre-head injury and post head injury.  Along with an initial eval­u­a­tion we will then do a qEEG.  The qEEG provides “targeting” infor­mation for neuro­feed­back training.  The map informs us of what brain waves are firing where, and also in which state, eyes open or eyes closed is there the most or least amount of abnormal activity.

Neurotherapy,  also called EEG biofeed­back is then incor­po­rated for the injury to start its reha­bil­i­ta­tion.  neuroAgility’s neurother­a­pists will work with the brain injured indi­vidual on perfor­mance while their brain injury is healing.  Some perfor­mance areas are sleep hygiene, breaks in the day, how to manage being under stress, or being put on the spot, breathing through tempered responses, allowing space and time to heal.
