Concussions / TBI

The symptoms of concussion can mimic those of ADHD and other learning challenges.

 

 

 

 

A concussion is caused by a blow to the head with or without loss of consciousness.  A concussion is a type of traumatic brain injury and can happen in sports, car accidents, falling, or anything similar. A concussion can even be the result of a whiplash.  A concussion is caused whenever the body moves quickly back and forth and the brain in turn hits the inside of the skull. 

The symptoms of a concussion can mimic those of ADHD and other learning challenges. 

  • Lack of focus
  • Not thinking clearly
  • Feeling slowed down
  • Easily agitated 
  • Nervous or anxious

It’s even possible to sustain a minor concussion without knowing it — the result of a minor sports injury you simply “shook off.” 

Studies have shown that people who have had Concussions/TBI (traumatic brain injury) have developed memory and cognitive issues such as dementia, Alzheimer’s, depression and chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE). 

If you or someone you know has received a blow to the head and is struggling to get back to a normal life, give us a call and we can help you.

From a qEEG brain map, we can see the aspects of brain function often impaired when a concussion happens. The brain training protocols for concussion are different than those we use for ADHD, learning challenges, etc.   This is why the brain map is so important — when we compare your symptoms to what the map shows us, we can see exactly what the issue is and how to help it.
