USA TODAY HIGHLIGHTS NOVEL TREATMENTS FOR BRAIN INJURY

Could a combination of brain mapping and stimulation technologies improve CTE in athletes? Earlier this month, USA Today published a story profiling a West Coast brain injury treatment center called Pure Recovery California Treatment Center, where former professional football players are treated for brain injuries and potential CTE. The article details how physicians at the Pure Recovery Center use quantitative EEG tests to highlight areas of the brain that are not functioning normally. Then, physicians choose either pulsed magnetic field stimulation, in which magnetic fields are used to help spur brain activity, or pulse electrical stimulation to stimulate nerve cells in targeted areas of the brain. Despite the success documented at Pure Recovery, the techniques remain controversial, given the lack of formal research. Source: USA Today Read More: usatoday.com
