Head injuries happen.
Most people recover well from mild hits to the head, and also from traumatic brain injuries (tbi's) - but for some, the injury is more serious and symptoms can last for weeks and months.
Feeling "slowed down"
Sensitivity to noise/light
Discomfort looking at computer screens
Difficulty remembering things
Neurofeedback often helps relieve symptoms of TBI's.*
First thing I recommend if you have incurred a possible head injury is to have a doctor check you out. Also, homeopathic Arnica never hurts and may help. And doing some Neurofeedback therapy may be just the ticket to re-establishing more stable, optimized, organized and efficient brainwave activity to help you recover.
