Neurofeedback therapy is an effective treatment option for ADD, PTSD, Depression, Anxiety, and more. If you’re looking for an alternative to medication we’d love to talk to you about Neurofeedback Therapy!
One of the most exciting technologies I think that we have added to our practice is what is called Neurofeedback. Neurofeedback is a device that has the ability to actually map the brain, look for various frequencies that are either too high, maybe too low, or certain patterns we see across every lobe of the brain and then be able to identify certain conditions or even neurobehavioral problems that may be associated with these frequencies.
I’m excited because this allows us to get into different types of conditions that we haven’t seen much success in with just standard chiropractic care such as being able to treat stroke victims, Parkinson’s patients, anxiety, severe depression, even in ADD-type situations which the American Pediatric Association in 2012 said neurofeedback is on par, if not better than Ritalin. We know that that’s a pretty remarkable statement coming from an organization such as that.
The neurofeedback sessions are relatively simple. We’re going to have you or your child sit in front of the computer and watch a movie. The computer is attached to a unit that has been attached to your brain. We’re not putting anything into the brain in terms of frequencies, but the EEG leads that we are using are reading what the brain is doing at that moment. Your brain then will control whether that movie plays or not.
We are one of the only clinics in the Greater Houston area that offers this type of technology. We are just so excited about it because I just know it is going to help a lot of people.
