This finding is based on a statistical analysis of neurocognition testing results from 120 child and adult patients who completed our 12-week brain fitness program. Read more about the science behind our methods.
Post-concussive syndrome is a set of symptoms that may continue for weeks, months, or a year or more after a concussion. Patients often have a variety of neurological, psychological, and physical symptoms. They may suffer from a variable degree of fatigue, insomnia, irritability, headaches, sensitivity to light or sound, dizziness while looking at moving objects, hypersensitivity to sitting in a moving car, anxiety, depression, personality changes, apathy, or aggressive behavior.
With Dr. Fotuhi’s expertise in the fields of memory, migraine, sleep, anxiety, and dizziness, we put together a successful program for each of our post-concussive patients.
Attention is the system by which you focus all of your senses on one issue, and is the first step in the memory consolidation process, making it critical in forming new memories. The more you pay attention, the more likely it is that new information will be firmly registered in your brain. This presents a major challenge for individuals with ADHD because they are unable to focus their senses on encoding the information.
We offer a comprehensive program which includes neurofeedback, a drug-free treatment for children and adults with ADD or ADHD. This is a safe and effective treatment that has been supported by numerous placebo-controlled clinical trials.
Some degree of wear and tear in your body is inevitable as you age, so it is reasonable to expect that your memory would show some signs of decline as well. The good news is there are actions you can take to improve your cognition, just as there are interventions to improve your physical health. By understanding what is causing your memory loss, we can devise a program for you to help address these causes.
In addition to aging, memory loss can be a symptom of many different illnesses or side effect from medications. The Brain Fitness Program will identify what factors are causing your memory loss and address them through a number of treatment interventions.
Over extended periods of time, anxiety, depression, and insomnia can significantly harm your brain. Patients with chronic anxiety and poor sleep may find it difficult to function normally in day-to-day life. Neurofeedback is a new treatment modality that can complement or replace medications used for these conditions. Meditation training is another natural method that we offer for reducing your stress.
At our brain center, we will determine the causes of your anxiety and insomnia and provide you with a comprehensive treatment protocol that includes neurofeedback, stress reduction, and brain coaching.
Dr. Fotuhi has treated thousands of patients with all forms of migraine. He focuses his treatment on natural interventions that have been shown to be extraordinarily successful. This often involves neurofeedback as well as medications, if needed.
Dr. Fotuhi completed a one-year fellowship at Johns Hopkins Hospital and served as the director of the Center for Balance, Dizziness, and Vertigo at Sinai Hospital. He is a world expert in this field and can treat even the most complex cases.
