What Common Conditions Can Be Treated with Neurofeedback?
Neurofeedback is a type of brain training or biofeedback that uses real-time data to stimulate proper brain function and train the patient to regulate their own brain waves. Neurofeedback is approaching mainstream acceptance: this article in the Washington Post about neurofeedback extols its virtues as an adjunct treatment for a wide variety of brain disorders, including PTSD, pain and anxiety.

A neurofeedback session is a bit like playing a video game with your brain. EEG Sensors are placed on the scalp to measure electrical activity, with measurements displayed using video displays or sound. Clients can learn over time and repeated sessions to self- adjust brainwaves back into the normal range, resulting in a reduction of emotional or neurological symptoms.
For those who find it difficult to come into the office regularly for sessions, neurofeedback is also available as a home care therapy using a Focus home brain trainer. Ask us about these therapies and how we can help you achieve better brain function.
