Mindfulness-Based Interventions May Improve TBI Symptoms, Research Indicates

Rebecca Acabchuck, PhD, postdoctoral fellow at the University of Connecticut’s Institute for Collaboration on Health, Intervention and Policy, wrote, “As a scientist, I evaluate the impact of behavioral interventions on stress and the brain. Along with my colleagues at the University of Connecticut, I conducted a meta-analysis of studies exploring the role that yoga, mindfulness and meditation can play in patients with TBI. In analyzing the results of these studies, we found that yoga, meditation or other mindfulness-based interventions resulted in significant improvement of symptoms compared with controls, with improvements seen in mental health, physical health, cognitive performance and quality of life.”
