The prevalence of neurological and mental health disorders in the United States is on the rise—especially among adolescents. And even with talk therapy, medication, and mindfulness practices, many people still struggle to manage their symptoms. Luckily, those treatments aren’t the only available options to treat imbalances in the brain. Neurofeedback is a powerful treatment option that retrains your brain and addresses symptoms at the source. To meet the increasing need for neurofeedback therapy, Braincode Centers is proud to offer neurofeedback consulting for healthcare professionals who are interested in entering the field.
We also offer ongoing supervision to interns and students who need to fulfill hours under BCNs. But before we get ahead of ourselves, let’s ensure you have a clear understanding of what neurofeedback is and how your patients may benefit from it.
What is neurofeedback?
Neurofeedback is a type of EEG biofeedback that is used to identify irregular brainwave activity and retrain the brain to better self-regulate. During a neurofeedback treatment session, electrical sensors are placed on the patient’s scalp. These sensors measure and transmit brainwave activity in real-time.
When brainwave frequencies are within normal ranges, a positive reward is given. At Braincode Centers, we will play either a movie, song, or video game of the patient’s choosing. When brainwave frequencies are outside of normal ranges, the movie, song, or video games stops, notifying the brain that it needs to try to regain an optimal state.
Through repeated exposure to these desirable and undesirable consequences, the brain learns how to better self-regulate, which leads to long-lasting changes in brain functioning.
What does neurofeedback treat?
Neurofeedback can be used to treat a wide range of mental health conditions and disorders. Most commonly, neurofeedback is used to treat:
- ADHD and other focus-related disorderss
- Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)s
- Concussions and traumatic brain injuriess
- Insomnia and other sleep-related disorderss
- Memory losss
- Migraines and headachess
In addition, some people seek neurofeedback treatment simply to improve their overall mental performance. Many professional athletes and high-level business executives regularly incorporate neurofeedback into their wellness routines. Even people who simply want to become better performers and achieve more in their daily life can benefit from neurofeedback.
