The brain maps we do with clients suggest that around 30% of them have evidence of previous head trauma, even though the clients may not have a memory of such an event. TBI generally falls into either the anxiety type or the depressed type. When either anxiety or depression has roots in brain injury, then traditional talk therapy may have limits in how much it can help. Furthermore, when healing does start to happen and they actually start to feel well again, people are often shocked to realize how depressed or anxious they were.
Dr. Dan Engle recently wrote a guide for treating brain injury
“The Concussion Repair Manual: A Practical Guide to Recovering From Traumatic Brain Injuries.” You can find a summary of key points here.
Several of the treatment modalities suggested are offered here at Peak Clarity, including:
- Transcranial direct current stimulation (TDCS)
- Pulsed electromagnetic field therapy (PEMF)
- Low-light laser therapy (LLLT) (Photobiomodulation)
