Concussion Rates Rising in the U.S., Especially Among Adolescents

concussionThe number of Americans diagnosed with concussions is growing, most significantly in adolescents, according to researchers at UC San Francisco. The findings appear online August 16, 2016, in the Orthopaedic Journal of Sports Medicine.

The article explains that “concussions are a form of mild traumatic brain injury resulting in transient functional and biochemical changes in the brain. They can lead to time lost from sports, work and school, as well as significant medical costs”. But the way that the medical world addresses concussions is often not effective from what my clients have told me. They often feel like they are walking around wounded and having to find coping mechanisms at best, rather than healing the core trauma.

This study looked at a large cross-section of the population in the U.S. and they were amazed to see an increase in concussion rates over the past years, mainly in adolescents between 10 and 19.

If you know anyone who have had a head injury and they are suffering with symptoms that have not been resolved, please have them contact me.  I have been working in the trauma resolution field since 1985 and am using NeurOptimal® Neurofeedback with amazing success with this population.  We never push the brain as other forms of neurofeedback do, but are able to show the brain its dysfunctional activity and our brains are able to renormalize themselves for improve functionality.  Neuroplasticity folks!

I have had countless individuals over the last decade who have come to me in despair because they could not function in their life, and after sessions are so relieved that their abilities return.  Our brains are capable to renormalizing themselves if we know how to communicate with them.  And NeurOptimal does know how!  Please pass it on to someone who is suffering.  We will explain it all to them.
