What is Neurofeedback?
Neurofeedback allows patients and clients to improve their concentration, develop theirability to “relax the mind,” and strengthen their overall neurological functioning. When there is a brain injury the system becomes dysregulated, or in other words, the brain becomes stuck in specific brainwave patterns. Retraining the brain can improve many conditions and the various symptoms of stroke/aneurysm, brain surgery, concussion, anxiety, sleep problems, PTSD, Parkinson’s Disease, and movement disorders, such as myoclonic. If we relate biofeedback to a sprint (in how quickly gains are acquired), neurofeedback might be related more toward a marathon,making patience and persistence an important element in the approach to treatments. Neurofeedback can be compared to exercising your brain, like a muscle, which takes time; however, improvements remain and are lasting with rewards of increased neurological functioning. Neurofeedback is able to assess brain function and indicate areas where it is not functioning properly. It can also locate neural dysregulation of the various neural hubs, as seen in a concussion and PTSD. Neurofeedback looks for the cause, such as what specific pathways are dysregulated or over or under activated. Once this type of assessment locates the cause of the symptom, then a wide variety of methods and equipment can be chosen based on what is the best one specifically for your needs and neurological issues.
How does it work?
All forms of biofeedback employ some type of computer or monitoring device along with electronic sensors to give information about what is going on in the body. Just like any other muscle in the body, the brain has the ability to repair itself, also known as neuroplasticity. In order stay physically fit, you would exercise to strengthen your muscles. Similar to this idea, neurofeedback training helps you get mentally fit.Neurofeedback assesses brain function through the use of non-intrusive sensors placed in various locations on the scalp. These sensors measure the electrical activity of the brain. An individual plays a specialized video game, the objective being to operate the game by controlling specific brain wave activity. Over several sessions, as the individual retrains his brain activity, he increases his skill level, thereby controlling his brain activity. This exercise strengthens the brain and the rest of the nervous system, with powerful effects on the entire body.
