The Importance Of Brainwaves

So why are head injuries such a concern? The answer lies in our brainwaves, The brainwaves in our head control vital functions like sleep patterns, subconscious, emotions, focus and decision making. If the head is jolted from any type of impact, some of those brainwaves can be disrupted. Even a small change in brainwave patterns can have a dramatic effect.

Concussion

Think about it…if the brainwaves responsible for sleep are disrupted, that person may experience constant fatigue. This could lead to hazy thinking, brain fog, distracted behavior, emotional outbursts and more. All possibly from a simple head injury. And these can lead to long term chronic conditions.

How Is The Brain Affected By A Concussion?

Let’s break this down a little further so that we can fully understand the impact that irregular brainwaves can have:

Delta Waves

When running too fast, it will be hard to get the deep sleep needed to rejuvenate and feel refreshed each morning. This can lead to constant fatigue and lack of energy

Theta Waves

When running too slow, it can affect memory and recall. If too fast, it can cause too much daydreaming. Lack of REM sleep can lead to brain fog and erratic behavior. 

Alpha Waves

When running too fast, the mind cannot calm down and relax. This can lead to stress and anxiety. Over time this can lead to erratic behavior and emotional outbursts.

Beta Waves

When too slow, it becomes hard to focus on tasks or pay attention. Reactions to other people or external input will be slower and one will likely avoid social situations.

Concussion

The Problem With Drugs

Drugs are designed to address symptoms. If a concussion is causing migraines, drugs can reduce the pain. But once the drugs wear off, the migraine will return. Drugs do not help fix the root problem and can have terrible side effects.

That’s because a concussion is a BRAIN PROBLEM. A head injury impacts the brain physically, changing the speed of certain brainwaves. In order to solve the problem, the brain must be targeted directly. That is where our clinic can help.
