New Delhi, Mar 31:
New study found that symptoms of concussions like loss of balance, hazy comprehension, sleep disturbance and ability to walk straight could be reversed by a therapy, magnetic stimulation. According to the study published in the 'Journal of Neurotrauma', magnetic stimulation that uses a laptop-style device for 20 minutes per day improved the ability of rodents with a concussion to walk in a straight line, navigate a maze, run on a wheel, and perform cognitive tests. "The beauty of this therapy is not only that it is effective, but that it is non-invasive, easy to use and cost-effective," said professor Changiz Taghibiglou, who led the research. The team also found evidence that Low-Frequency Magnetic Simulation could potentially protect the brain from future degeneration, a risk following serious concussions.
