Neurofeedback Therapy is a proven effective and safe alternative to other forms of treatment for ADD, ADHD and a host of other disorders. Part of a type of treatment regime referred to as biofeedback, this type of treatment is a non-invasive therapy that works to help you retrain your mind to help you regain your concentration and focus. It can be repeated as often as necessary and each session helps to improve the results. It can work with other treatment options or it can be conducted as a sole therapy, with the overall goal of helping you get the end result you need to improve your quality of life.
What Is Neurofeedback?
Neurofeedback is the process in which your specific brain patterns are analyzed and mapped and then via audio or visual stimuli, are adjusted to produce the correct patterns that correspond with increased levels of focus and concentration. Small sensors are placed on the scalp and then a computer adjusts the stimuli to correspond to your specific pattern thus allowing you the ability to cognitively adjust those patterns to gain the result. This type of therapy, helps you retrain your mind and it has been proven to be very effective in helping those who suffer from various disorders such as ADD and ADHD.
Can It Help Me?
Naturally, each situation is different as each person is also different. One of the positive aspects of Neurofeedback therapy is that it can produce results across a broad spectrum of disorders. In addition, it has been shown to produce significant results those who suffer from ADD and ADHD as well as epileptic disorders or those that have suffered trauma from accidents or disasters. Given that this type of therapy can be used as a stand-alone therapy or as a comprehensive therapy, the potential for any single case showing improvement is significant. In some situations it might require a short therapy duration while others might require a longer duration to achieve results, the potential exists for some level of improvement in most individuals. In addition, it can be repeated as often as necessary with each therapy session building on the previous ones.
Long Term Results
One of the interesting facets to engaging with Neurofeedback Therapy is that the results tend to have longer lasting effects than that using other treatment regimes. This is primarily due to the fact that Neurofeedback works directly towards the core of the concern, the brain, as opposed to being limited to treating or relieving the symptoms a person suffers from. When combined in a comprehensive therapy setting, the longer term potential is increased even further, thus not only helping to reduce the symptoms of the concern but also providing a stable level upon which the improvement as a result of Neurofeedback Therapy can build thus enhancing the results potentially even longer. As previously mentioned, the fact that it can be repeated multiple times can also enhance the results in the long term.
