Therapeutic Effects of Fishing in TBI (NeuLife’s Outing for Patients and Staff)

NeuLife clients and staff enjoyed a therapeutic outing to Hickory Point Park for fishing and a delicious picnic lunch. Fishing is by nature a reflective and meditative activity that forces you to slow down and enjoy your surroundings. Therapeutic experts claim that, fishing helps to take a person’s mind off the day-to-day worries because it requires focus;  it engages small muscle groups we don’t normally use and helps us build fine motor skills.

Fishing is also a fantastic (and safe) outdoor leisure activity for someone who has suffered a TBI it has the ability to reduce the effects of TBI.
