Now Offering Neurofeedback for ADHD
Hello! Thanks for stopping by to check out our updated website and to find more information about neurofeedback treatment for ADHD. Neurofeedback is a non-pharmacological treatment option for kids, teens, and adults with ADHD. The purpose of this treatment is to train the brain to produce healthier brain waves, and we do this through the use of sophisticated computer-EEG software. This treatment has been around for a long time; however, more recent research has shown that it can be a safe and effective treatment for a wide range of brain-related disorders.
During typical neurofeedback appointment, we gently place electrodes on our patient's scalp (this is done by the use of a gel that is easily removed and is not permanent). These electrodes then "read" the underlying brain wave activity in that area of the brain and sends these signals to an EEG/computer interface and software which allows our clinician to visually read the various frequencies being produced by the brain. After that, our patient selects from a large list of computer games/activities which range from exciting to relaxing (depending on the patient's goal). While playing the game on the computer, our patient's brain waves are monitored by the clinician on a separate computer screen and the clinician adjusts the game such that the patient ultimately has to produce healthier brain waves in order to be successful. In general, treatment for ADHD can take anywhere between 15 to 30 (45 minute) sessions but often there is noticeable improvement after 10 or more sessions. Neurofeedback is safe for all patients and can be utilized alongside medication or without.
Please call us if you have any questions and we would be happy to discuss this exciting new treatment offering in more detail.
