MCN Neurofeedback & the Reduction in Concussion Symptoms
Written by Linda Edwards, RN, MSN
A leading brain imaging research team at UC San Diego studied IASIS Micro-Current Neurofeedback (MCN Neurofeedback) in individuals who suffered a concussion. A striking 53.6% reduction in abnormal brainwaves and a 52.8% reduction in post-concussive symptoms were achieved after only twelve sessions of MCN Neurofeedback, according to the research team.
People in the study reported improvement in headaches, insomnia, anxiety, sensitivity to light and sound, smoking, memory, focus, concentration, feelings of frustration, and stuttering. The study was published recently in the journal Brain Injury. *
IASIS MCN Neurofeedback is brain training that uses low-intensity pulses of energy and is not perceptible to the person receiving feedback. The tiny, pulsating current disrupts “stuck” patterns within the brain, and the brain responds by laying down new neural pathways. Nothing more than sitting still for 20-30 minutes is required.
“It’s fascinating for a world-renowned brain imaging team to document the results that we see in practice,” states Linda Edwards RN, MSN, who owns ResilientMe, Inc. Neurofeedback practice in Rumson, NJ. Although she studied with the US military, Linda recently introduced the technology to retired NFL players at the 2nd Annual Athlete Health Symposium held at the University of Central Florida on Pro Bowl weekend.
About 85% of people receiving an IASIS MCN Neurofeedback session report a positive response within the first three sessions, with some as soon as the first session. The risk-reward scenario is compelling due to the safety profile and effectiveness of MCN Neurofeedback. MCN Neurofeedback is non-invasive and safe and is a unique way to help people with lingering issues after a head injury.
