Each year, 1.5 million Americans suffer head injuries, and many of these injuries go untreated, while mainstream medicine uses powerful diagnostic tools and weak therapeutic ones. Neither psychopharmacology, behavioral, nor psychotherapeutic therapies hold much promise, and the symptoms of traumatic brain injury (TBI) are often misunderstood and misdiagnosed. Neurofeedback, with its EEG-based diagnostic approach and its therapies aimed at redirecting neural processing, seems ideally suited for therapy with TBI, but of the traditional neurofeedback paradigms (some going high and some low in their desired training frequencies), there is no one size that fits all. However, the flexibility bestowed by the Low Energy Neurofeedback System (LENS) form of neurofeedback breaks through entrenched maladaptive patterns and opens new possibilities for sufferers of TBI. The success of the LENS approach shows the efficiency of a specific cutting-edge technique and the efficacy of neurofeedback in general as a therapeutic modality.
