Dr. Becky Acabchuk will review the results from her group’s meta-analysis that was recently published, showing that yoga and meditation may be effective treatments for certain chronic symptoms following brain injury. She will describe the methods, results, limitations and implications of this work, as well as discuss the proposed mechanisms through which these mind-body practices may exert their effects. In addition, Dr. Acabchuk will discuss what inspired her to do this work and personal insights as a researcher, yoga and meditation instructor, and mother of three teenage athletes. A brief experiential demonstration will also be included, followed by Q&A.
