The symptoms of concussion can mimic those of ADHD and other learning challenges.
A concussion is a type of traumatic brain injury caused by a blow to the head with or without loss of consciousness.
Therefore, symptoms of a concussion can mimic those of ADHD and other learning challenges.
- Lack of focus
- Not thinking clearly
- Feeling slowed down
- Easily upset or angered
- Nervous or anxious
It’s even possible to sustain a minor concussion without knowing it — the result of a minor sports injury you “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).
Concussions can be quite serious and can severely disrupt normal brain function. If you or someone you know is struggling to get back to a normal life, give us a call and we can help you figure out your next steps.
Your initial brain map will show us if there’s room for improvement with 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.
Using Vielight technology, we can address the effects of concussions immediately, whereas we often need to wait 1-4 months after a concussion for neurofeedback.
What People Are Saying
I played football for two years. I started having problems with focus and attention. My grades starting dropping, so my mom took me to Asheville Brain Training for a brain map. After seeing my brain map, Dr Yonce asked if I had ever rec’d a concussion. I told him that I had never been told that I had a concussion, but I had multiple hits to the head while playing football. Neurofeedback helped me overcome my issues with focus and attention. My grades improved and school became easy.
