Many people have found great success with brain training while healing from concussions and traumatic brain injuries (TBI.)
TBI is included on the list of issues found to respond very well to brain training according to the 2014 survey of NeurOptimal Trainers world-wide.
The NeurOptimal website includes case studies and research on multiple studies conducted with TBI and Concussive Syndrome.
Neurofeedback and Biofeedback, in general, have well-documented studies of success with concussion and brain injury.

A comprehensive “Concussion Recovery Program” with emphasis on brain coaching and EEG-based neurofeedback therapy: A retrospective analysis
Wolters Kluwer Health, Inc.
“Data from 46 patients reviewed showed significant improvements in several cognitive domains. Primary outcome measures were the 3 CNS Vital Signs domains known to be most sensitive to mild traumatic brain injury: Complex Attention, Cognitive Flexibility, and Executive Functioning. Paired t-tests were used to compare mean scores before and after treatment. For all 3 domains, patients experienced significant improvement after treatment (p < 0.00001), with medium or large effect sizes. For all 3 domains, over half of patients experienced score improvements greater than the Reliable Change Index.”
