Neurofeedback- A Cutting Edge ADD/ ADHD Treatment

Neurofeedback To Treat ADHDNeurofeedback is a therapy that is being used to treat ADD/ ADHD. It works very well for children, as it is non-invasive and can often involve playing video games as a way to train the brain.

Neurofeedback is increasingly seen as an appealing alternative to medication to treat ADHD. The treatment is easy and painless, starting with electrodes being attached to the head and then to a computer. The images on the computer screen respond to brain activity. When the right kind of brain activity is demonstrated, something positive will happen on the computer, thus guiding the child or adult to balance their brain waves.

Balanced brain waves equal a reduction in symptoms, and a direct improvement of the quality of life of the patient.

Common Conditions Treated with Neurofeedback

Therapists are using neurofeedback to treat ADHD, PTSD and other conditions

PTSD Treatments- NeurofeedbackNeurofeedback is a type of brain training or biofeedback that uses video games, computers and other specialized tools to help regulate a client’s brain waves. There was recently an article in the Washington Post about neurofeedback and it’s uses in treating a wide variety of brain disorders, including PTSD, pain and anxiety.

Synergy Neurofeedback is a neurofeedback clinic in Fort Collins, CO. You can make an appointment by calling 970-221-1106 or email us.

A neurofeedback therapist uses a computer and sensors measuring brain waves to adjust waves that are out of balance, resulting in a reduction of emotional or neurological symptoms. The article mentions a recent trial involving 104 children published in March in the Journal of Pediatrics. Neurofeedback produced improvements in attention and impulse control, which persisted after six months. The authors concluded that neurofeedback may be a “promising attention training treatment for children with ADHD.”
