Concussions, Brain Injury, Football and Neurofeedback
There was a lot of discussion in the media this past week about the world of football when PBS’s aired the chilling report, “A League of Denial: The NFL’s Concussion Crisis”. http://to.pbs.org/1c8cP3W One of the questions that were raised in this focus on the NFL was, “Is football destroying the brains of its players?” It also raises the question for me, what about the brains of college players, high school players and the 10 year old players?
As a neurofeedback practitioner, I have worked with clients who have complaints of anxiety, depression, attention/focus, addiction disorders and migraines. Often these are disorders that can result from head injury. The effect of head injury can be traced to repeated hits to the head which occur at all levels of football—professional football, college football, high school football and youth football leagues.
Neurofeedback can work to retrain damaged parts of the brain. Focus can be regained, anxiety diminished, depression decreased, addictions conquered and migraines eliminated.
