LOS ANGELES NEUROFEEDBACK CENTER
LANC & CONCUSSION TREATMENT
When seeking Concussion Treatment, the term “Traumatic Brain Injury” may sound like a life-ending event. However, the human brain is both flexible– able to adapt to changes – and resilient – able to recover from injury. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) defines a Traumatic Brain Injury as: “a disruption in the normal function of the brain that can be caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head, or penetrating head injury.” TBI can manifest as anything from “a brief change in mental status or consciousness” to coma or amnesia. The CDC estimates that over 1.7 million TBIs occur every year. The most common form of TBI is a Concussion.
The CDC defines a Concussion as a TBI “caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head or by a hit to the body that causes the head and brain to move rapidly back and forth. This sudden movement can cause the brain to bounce around or twist in the skull, creating chemical changes in the brain and sometimes stretching and damaging brain cells.” Thankfully, studies of military veterans with TBI, NFL players suffering the effects of multiple concussion in sports, and people with injuries sustained in everyday life, including concussion in kids, have shown LANC’s direct neurofeedback (DNFB) effective in alleviating TBI symptoms and concussion syndrome.
Reduce TBI symptoms at a LANC office today. The initial intake session costs only $89 at our West LA office and $149 at our South Bay office and is the first step towards Concussion recovery.
All of the brain’s functions are electrochemical. TBI can cause chemical changes in the brain that impair both its flexibility and its resiliency and throw the electrochemical composition out of balance. These changes can disrupt long-established neural pathways, causing TBI symptoms like headache, nausea, balance issues, difficulty remembering, trouble concentrating, sleep issues, irritability and depression.
Dealing with the long-term effects of TBI can be particularly frustrating to some. Actions that were once done without a thought are suddenly difficult or impossible. The disabilities that may arise as a result of TBI may affect one’s work to the point of complete disability. When considering concussion treatment, the best solution has two parts:
“After all the occupational hazards I have gone through as a professional fighter, I worried I would never be the same again. But thanks to Direct Neurofeedback, after my first session, I immediately felt back to my peak performance self with diminished brain fog and focused."
– M. RAEES, LOS ANGELES CLIENT
TRADITIONAL CONCUSSION TREATMENT
The traditional concussion treatment is rest until the symptoms wear off and then a gradual return to normal activity. Long-term effects from single concussions are rare; although, the effects from multiple concussions will add up over time. For a moderate to severe TBI diagnosis, however, the outlook can be different. Since almost any voluntary nervous function may be affected by moderate or severe TBI, the long-term effects can vary significantly. Cognitive difficulties (remember or processing, speech difficulties, physical difficulties, such as impaired balance or loss of fine motor control. In rarer cases, emotional issues like mood swings and even changes in personality can result from moderate or severe TBI.
In all these cases, the standard option is therapy appropriate to the individual’s condition, such as Speech Therapy or Occupational Therapy. These types of therapy are very time-consuming and require a high level of commitment from the client. These therapies create new neural pathways but do so very slowly. While physical/speech/etc. therapies can be effective for concussion treatment, the process can be grueling and serve as a constant reminder of you or your loved one’s limitations and possibly of the incident that caused the injury.

LANC’S DIRECT NEUROFEEDBACK & CONCUSSION RECOVERY
LANC’s DNFB helps the brain’s overall chemical composition to re-balance. LANC’s concussion protocol allows the concussion treatments mentioned above to progress at a faster rate as the stimulation from the DNFB allows new neural pathways to develop faster. Furthermore, LANC’s DNFB concussion protocol causes the brain to re-evaluate its existing neural pathways. Useful pathways are kept while damaged or counter-productive pathways are used less and newer, more effective pathways are formed. Over time, the old ineffective pathways are no longer used, and the new pathways take their place.
Most importantly, the session is quick and passive – for 20-30 minutes, the client simply sits back as the brain adjusts itself without effort on the client’s part, alleviating frustration and anxiety. After 20-25 sessions, the shifts in the brain chemistry are enduring. LANC can also help with associated frustration, Anxiety, and Depression. Since the type of incidents that lead to moderate and severe TBI can be quite traumatic, LANC’s DNFB concussion protocol can help with associated PTSD.
"Before direct neurofeedback, I was angry with myself because I didn’t remember the way I did in the past. Now I’m getting closer to where I feel normal. I’m close to getting all the way back and I realize there’s a way to help me and I’m comfortable in that.”
