Neurofeedback has been used for decades to treat trauma. It was first developed nearly 60 years ago and has advanced greatly since then. Mainstream neurosciences are now showing us that a variety of psychological illnesses and severe emotional turmoil can actually be understood as firing errors in the electrical activities of the brain. Neurofeedback has become an increasingly sophisticated technology, one that can help people change their brains' activities to eliminate symptoms of various mental health issues. Neurofeedback for trauma has shown to be an effective, non-invasive treatment.

"Neurotherapy through Braincode Centers has been the best thing to happen to me. I come from a family of First Responders who have served their community with Pride and Honor. I knew that God was calling me to be in the service of my community and country. When I became a Law Enforcement Officer and hit the streets I realized that I needed to step back from my calling to serve my community to address the “trauma related brain injuries” I incurred during my life.

Braincode Centers helped me recover and retrain my brain to address the past injuries to my neurological pathways I had, understand how my brain reacts to trauma and developing a plan to train the brain to function and grow at the highest level possible.

In my short career as a Law Enforcement Officer, Braincode Centers has been one of the best tools I have in my toolbox to decompress and retrain my brain. I have learned that my brain is a unique muscle that gets injured when I experience trauma from calls for service, critical incidents and maintaining hypervigilance to go home safe.

Some of the signs of brain fatigue that I have come to learn through my training at Braincode and through Officer Survival classes are brain fog, irritability and anxiety, to name a few, are the result of cumulative trauma events that we as First Responders experience just by going to work. These can alter the chemistry and make up of our brain and change who we are as people.

Braincode Centers gives me the opportunity to grow, train and recover my brain in a way that will help me perform at my absolute best. This training helps prevent burnout from job related stressors that will slowly erode my home life and my ability to be the best I can on the streets.

I believe Braincode Centers is essential to my mental health and performance as a LEO. Neurotherapy is a critical training program for mental health and should be included to help combat the ugly statistic of First Responders Suicides due to the daily traumas we see that accumulate over a career that can span 25+ years of service."

Top Dallas Neurofeedback and Trauma Specialists

The effects of trauma can be devastating and often send a sufferer into fight or flight mode. This is because trauma causes the brain to remain in a state of hyper-vigilance. This hyper-vigilance can create an emotional prison where you can become a captive to your feelings. This happens without any conscious thought but still results in a seemingly never-ending cycle that can change the way we think, react and feel. When you're dealing with brain trauma or PTSD you may want to look into Dallas neurofeedback and trauma specialists to mitigate these effects.

How Does Trauma Affect Your Brain?

There are basically three parts of your brain that are affected the most after trauma: the amygdala, hippocampus, and prefrontal cortex. These areas are respectively responsible for emotion, memory, and impulses, and all work in tandem when it comes to stress management.

Once a memory is triggered, your amygdala goes into overdrive and makes you feel as though it's the first time you're experiencing the trauma. This produces irregular brainwaves that will ultimately rely on a treatment like neurofeedback to regulate brain activity.

What is Trauma?

Contrary to popular belief, trauma is not just a physical event that affects us negatively. Trauma can be psychological and emotional too, and the results are very similar. This can greatly affect your family life, personal life, and overall quality of living.

The post-traumatic stress that these events place on the body and brain ultimately alters the state of a sufferer's life, and it is often cognitive-behavioral therapy and medication that becomes the first line of treatment. These treatments may not always be effective and can lead to a lifetime of dependency.

Can Brain Training Help Treat Traumatic Brain Injuries?
