Navigating Concussions
with Neurofeedback

Free Consultation

Peak Brain Centers can help you navigate a traumatic brain injury (TBI). 

Trauma to the brain can happen at any age, and the effects can travel through the entire body.

To treat a TBI, Peak Brain Centers must first understand how your brain was impacted and which areas were affected. We do so by measuring your brain function with a qEEG brain map. This assessment and map of your neuropathways will help identify why you or your child is experiencing injury symptoms. From there, we’ll create a personalized plan with brain exercises designed specifically for your brain. It’s like having a personal trainer, but for your mind!

Identifying Brain Trauma

Traumatic Brain Injury

A TBI occurs when a violent blow or jolt to the head causes the brain to slam into the skull. The result is dysfunction and injury—signs range from loss of consciousness to disorientation and confusion to slipping into a coma. TBI can cause many behavioral, physical, and mental health changes in any individual.


A concussion is a mild TBI, or mTBI, that causes the brain to temporarily dysfunction. It’s the most common type of brain injury, and Peak Brain Centers usually sees this in athletes of hard-hitting, contact sports. Other causes of concussions can be motor vehicle collisions, falls, or bicycle accidents.

Symptoms to Look for

  • Feeling depressed or anxious
  • Mood changes or swings
  • Memory or concentration difficulties
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Being dazed, confused, or disoriented
  • Headaches, nausea, or vomiting
  • Fatigue or drowsiness
  • Change in sleeping or eating habits
  • Sensitivity to light or sound

Neurofeedback is a way to train brain activity; it is biofeedback for the brain. To understand neurofeedback, first, we need to understand a little about brainwaves. Brainwaves are the electrical impulses produced as your brain cells communicate with one another. Brainwaves tell us a great deal about how you feel and function; your thought habits, stress levels, underlying mood, and overall brain function. Using sensors on the scalp, we can measure and monitor this activity. With a qEEG brain map, we can identify what specific activity is causing your symptoms. Once we know the areas of concern, we can create a training plan to help draw your brain into a comfortable, efficient state using neurofeedback. During a neurofeedback session – which lasts anywhere from 20 to 40 minutes – we compare what your brain is actually doing to what you’d like it to be doing. When your brain is nearing a more comfortable state, you are rewarded with a positive response via sound. The sounds tell you immediately when your brain approaches a more efficient place and when not. Much like physical exercises develop specific muscles, the more your brain is exercised into reaching a more comfortable, more efficient position, the better it gets at it. As with learning any new skill, it simply requires time and repetition.

Neurofeedback is effective in the vast majority of cases and provides measurable results. Almost everyone responds to training, and the results are long-lasting. Our clients report significant improvement towards their goals 95% of the time; an exceptionally high rate of achievement. All of our treatment protocols are strongly supported by evidence-based research. Neurofeedback is known as a ”Level 1″ or Highly Effective Treatment by the American Academy of Pediatrics. And like any therapy, it works best with people who are motivated and want to improve.

Since neurofeedback involves learning and every person is unique, training varies for each person. Young brains learn much faster than older ones, and small challenges shift quicker than bigger ones.

Typically, the more severe or chronic symptoms, the more sessions that are required. You can expect the gains to be cumulative over the course.

A mental ‘tune-up’ would take about 10 sessions. Symptom resolution for depression, anxiety, stress, or some sleep disorders, we recommend a full package of 30 to 40 sessions. For the Autistic spectrum and severe autoimmune disorders, expect a greater number of sessions with progressive gains over the course.


For most, simply relieving uncomfortable symptoms is enough. Others want to move forward in other areas or tackle new goals.

Ultimately, self-improvement is a lifelong continuum. How much is enough is up to you.

Fatigue is the most commonly reported side effect. And while brain training is in many ways similar to physical training, the brain expresses the side effects of training differently than the body does. The fatigue feels much like the mental tiring after learning a complex mental skill.

Because neurofeedback is essentially structured exercises for your brain, the term ‘side effect’ isn’t applicable in the same sense as for medications. Unlike medication, nothing is put into the body or brain.

Those with more serious emotional conditions or trauma occasionally report an increase of old familiar feelings before the difficulty passes away and the issue fades out for good. It’s like cleaning out a garage – sometimes you just take all the “stuff” to the curb and sometimes you open all the boxes and take a trip down memory lane.  Don’t worry, it will pass and is part of the process.

If you have had a physical brain injury or head trauma, you will likely be more sensitive to neurofeedback. You might experience nausea, dizziness, and light sensitivity as you ‘re-regulate’ your brain function. This is part of the process.

We monitor your brain activity during neurofeedback sessions and can tell if your brain is getting tired or overworked. We will adjust your training accordingly.
