Along with helping anxiety, addiction, depression and PTSD through relaxing the nervous system and allowing the brain to get out of frozen patterns, traumatic brain Injury (TBI) is of particular interest to The Dubin Clinic for Direct Neurofeedback. Traumatic injury to the brain is an area where no treatment has been reliably helpful. It has been our experience that Direct Neurofeedback, by allowing the brain to relax and reorganize itself, can be helpful, at times dramatically so. Our experience has been similar to those reported to us by other clinicians using Direct Neurofeedback.
Because TBI has been so much in the news the last few years, with the issues of concussions, chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), combat veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan with blast injuries, and the search for effective treatments, that The Dubin Clinic for Direct Neurofeedback did a formal, self-funded IRB approved study looking at the effect of giving 20 sessions of Direct Neurofeedback to 10 former NFL players
