Biofeedback for Long-Term Post-Concussive Symptoms

Study Description

The Effectiveness of Biofeedback for Individuals With Long-term Post-concussive Symptoms

Most concussions resolve within 7-10 days, but approximately 40% of individuals do not fully recover and suffer from persistent post-concussive symptoms. This 8-week intervention study will evaluate the efficacy of heart rate variability (HRV) biofeedback and neurofeedback on reducing the number and severity of concussion symptoms.
