What is neurofeedback therapy?
Neurofeedback therapy is a research-backed treatment that uses EEG technology to identify and correct irregular brainwave activity. During a treatment session, a video game, movie, or song of your choice will play when your brainwaves are within normal ranges.
As soon as your brain starts producing irregular brainwave patterns, the video game, movie, or song will stop. This reward-based training relies on the principle of the behavior-changing power of operant conditioning. This principle helps retrain your brain through learned consequences. Repeated exposure (or practice) to desirable and undesirable consequences leads to lasting changes in the way your brain operates.
Neurofeedback is right for you if…
Neurofeedback therapy is a fantastic treatment option for many people. If you’re considering trying it, but you’re not sure if it’s right for you, you’ve come to the right place. You could greatly benefit from neurofeedback if…
You suffer from one of these disorders
Neurofeedback can be used to treat a wide range of mental health disorders, including ADHD, anxiety disorders, attachment disorder, autism spectrum disorder, concussions, depression, insomnia, mild memory loss, migraines, PTSD, and TBIs.
Many people who don’t have any of the above-mentioned disorders can also benefit from neurofeedback training, as it also helps improve overall cognitive performance and helps reduce stress.
Medicine alone isn’t offering you the relief you need
Medications are certainly helpful in helping to manage many mental health disorders and neurological conditions. However, medicine alone doesn’t usually provide people the relief they’re really looking for and may come with some side effects.
If this is the case for you, neurofeedback is a great complementary treatment option to include in conjunction with your current prescribed medications.
And if you start seeing significant improvements through neurofeedback, it’s possible you could cut back or even eliminate a need for medication. This should always be discussed with your physician first and you should continue to take prescribed medicine throughout treatment sessions.
You want to try a new treatment
Most people who are diagnosed with a mental health disorder or neurological condition struggle for years before finding a treatment plan that works for them. The good news is, our brains have the ability to quite literally change the way they function. Extensive research published over the last several decades in the Journal of Neurochemistry has demonstrated just how malleable our brains really are. Neurofeedback leverages the plasticity of our brains to alter brainwave patterns and thus alleviate symptoms.
