Traumatic brain injury is a frequently occurring event. Often it is not diagnosed in a timely manner. Neurofeedback interventions have not yet been recognized as a treatment of choice. This lack of acceptance of neurofeedback as a treatment of choice may well be due to a scarcity of published control group studies. In addition, the use of the quantitative electroencephalography, one of the most promising diagnostic and treatment planning tools, has been opposed by the American Academy of Neurology (AAN). Yet sufficient clinical and published research data exist to warrant the use of the quantitative electroencephalography as a supplemental tool for diagnostic and treatment planning purposes and the use of various neurofeedback interventions for overcoming many of the symptoms of traumatic brain injury. Practitioners must remain current on both clinical and research data if they are to practice both ethically and competently. In addition, they must attend to other ethical issues such as informed consent, competence, and practice guidelines and standards.
