Neurofeedback and Post- Stroke Recovery

neurofeedback for stroke recoveryStroke remains a leading cause of long-term disability in the United States at a cost of $38 billion per year. About 650,000 persons survive a new stroke yearly and 7 million Americans live with the complications of stroke [1]. Conventional therapy has traditionally involved physical, occupational, and speech therapy, but changes in protocols are currently occurring at a rapid rate due to new scientific discoveries.

Pharmacologic interventions, cell-based and biologic therapies are expensive and come with a wide variety of side effects. Neurofeedback is non-invasive, completely safe and side- effect free, and cost effective compared with conventional medicine.

Recently neurofeedback has gotten some deserved recognition as a viable therapy for post-stroke recovery, even years after the event. A number of studies have confirmed what neurofeedback therapists have known for years- neurofeedback can bring about profound improvements in stroke recovery outcome.

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.”
