“For 4 years I have been working with a 30-year-old client who had a bad ski accident 9 years ago and sustained a brain injury: he was in coma for almost 3 weeks andin hospital for 8 months. When his mother took him home, he could not sit and eat alone. Communication was not possible and he needed help to walk because he was paralyzed on the right side. In addition to other therapies, he started doing 1-2 sessions a week of neurofeedback. Since then a lot has changed in his life: he started to understand and repeat several words. With time, he could differentiate the extremes – when I said cold, he said hot, etc. As his brain improved, his motor capacity improved too. He started to walk much better. His resilience and concentration increased. Today he almost understands everything and he has started to make spontaneous sentences. It was wonderful to see how his brain started to organize itself and how neurofeedback can support and help in that process.”
“A 26-year-old girl had a brain injury from a car accident. She was “driving her parents crazy” with her dependent and irresponsible behaviour. They were skeptical that the neurofeedback would help, but agreed to try it, and were amazed that after about 20 sessions significant changes started to occur. They began to have hope that their daughter could work back to a more normal level of existence and independent living.”
“NeurOptimal® training eliminated most seizures and pseudo-seizures in a woman with a history of brain damage and severe sexual abuse that neurologists had given up on.”
“A 6-year-old with symptoms of concussion was already in training. NeurOptimal® within three hours eliminated these symptoms by end of one session, training response back to usual by end of second session.”

The Use of NeurOptimal® With a Young Adult With an Acute TBI – A Case Study
This is a case study using clinical, NeurOptimal® baseline and anecdotal data. Dr. Lartin’s 22 year old son Brian survived a life-threatening TBI in April of 2012 and had more than 70 sessions of NeurOptimal® in a year. The contribution of NeurOptimal® to his recovery is discussed. Brian made an essentially complete recovery.

Systemic EEG Biofeedback for Traumatic Brain Injury
Since NeurOptimal® helped ChemoBrain patients, will it also help people with TBI with similar symptoms?

How I Undid Years of Brain Trauma By Flying a Spaceship With My Mind
It’s much more scientific and far less crazier than it sounds.
Former NFL players receive treatment for concussions
A Charlotte doctor is using a groundbreaking treatment to help former NFL players who suffer from concussions.
Although NeurOptimal® does not directly treat specific conditions, it is a tool that helps alleviate symptoms associated with these and other conditions by improving the overall functioning of the central nervous system.
