What is neurofeedback therapy?
Neurofeedback is a treatment that uses EEG technology to identify irregular brainwave activity and provide real-time feedback. During neurofeedback therapy, a video game, music, or movie of the patient’s choosing will play. It will continue to play as long as brainwave activity remains within normal ranges.
Through operant conditioning, a powerful behavioral type of learning, we can modify the way our brains function based on learned consequences. When a patient’s brain functions regularly, they are rewarded with the game, music, or movie. But when irregularities in brainwave function occur, the positive stimulus will stop.
Repeated exposure to these desirable and undesirable consequences helps lead to long-lasting changes in brainwave activity.
Neurofeedback is right for you if…
Neurofeedback can help treat a wide variety of mental and neurological disorders. If you’re considering it, but not sure if it’s right for you, we’re here to help break things down. You could benefit from neurofeedback if...
You suffer from one of these disorders
If you suffer from ADHD, anxiety, ASD, concussions, depression, memory loss, migraines, sleep-related disorders, trauma, or a traumatic brain injury, neurofeedback could help you.
In addition to providing relief for the above-mentioned disorders, neurofeedback is also used to help improve focus and enhance overall mental performance.
Medicine isn’t relieving your symptoms
Since neurofeedback is a drug-free, holistic treatment, it can be used in conjunction with your prescribed medication to provide further relief.
If you begin to see desired results through neurofeedback, you can discuss with your physician if it’s possible to reduce or eliminate your prescribed medication. However, you should continue to take it throughout your treatment.
You’re ready to try something new
Many people with mental or neurological disorders struggle for years before they see any kind of relief. Fortunately, our brains have the ability to change the way they work. Extensive research over the last few decades has shown just how malleable our brains are.
Unlike other treatment options, neurofeedback directly influences and changes the way our brains function without drug or chemical intervention.
