Clinical Study Shows Good News for Concussion Recovery

IASIS Technologies Release: Clinical Study Shows Good News for Concussion Recovery

Published date: Jan 22, 2018

There is good news for those seeking concussion recovery. A leading brain imaging research team at UC San Diego studied a non-invasive technology known as IASIS Micro-Current Neurofeedback (MCN) in individuals who suffered a traumatic brain injury. A striking 53.6% reduction in abnormal brainwaves, and a 52.8% reduction in post-concussive symptoms was achieved after only twelve sessions of Micro-Current Neurofeedback. The study subjects showed improvement in: headaches, insomnia, anxiety, sensitivity to light and sound, focus, concentration, memory, tobacco use cessation, stuttering and feelings of frustration. The research team, led by Ming-Xiong Huang, Ph.D., published their study recently in the peer-reviewed journal Brain Injury. * The work was supported in part by Merit Review Grants from the US Department of Veterans Affairs. Barry Bruder President & COO OF IASIS Technologies notes that since the publication of the study, “We have already received inquiries from Veterans and sports organizations about using MCN to help with concussion recovery.”

Sophisticated brain imaging known as magnetoencephalography (MEG) was used prior to and after MCN sessions with subjects who suffered mild to moderate traumatic brain injuries (TBI).  “…it suggests new potential for effectively speeding the healing process in mild traumatic brain injuries.” according to Dr. Huang.

IASIS MCN is brain training that uses low intensity pulses of energy and is not perceptible to the person receiving feedback. This tiny pulsating current helps the brain to achieve a healthier state by retraining the brain and nervous system. “Stuck” patterns are disrupted, and the brain responds by laying down new neural pathways. Nothing more than sitting still for 20-30 minutes is required.

In contrast to other contemporary neurofeedback systems, IASIS MCN provides a safe and sustainable alternative that yields long-lasting benefits in fewer sessions. Although every individual and their respective circumstance is different, about 85% of the patients receiving a Micro Current Neurofeedback brain training session report a positive response within the first three sessions, with some as soon as the first session. IASIS MCN has been seen over the years to yield long-lasting benefits that optimize brain function without longstanding negative fallouts or side effects. “It’s really exciting for a world-renown brain imaging team to document the results that we see in practice” states Barry Bruder.  MCN can easily be plugged in to any concussion recovery protocol. Existing medical staff would continue to make any return-to-duty decisions for military personnel or return-to-play decisions for athletes.”

Based on the results of the pilot study, the UCSD researchers were awarded the VA Merit Study, where Micro Current Neurofeedback ranked in the top 4.2% of applicants, landing them the number one funding position.
