Are you suffering from a brain injury? Struggling to get back to your old self?
Neurofeedback therapy is an effective, medication-free way to improve brain function. Neurofeedback helps your brain heal from an injury. It teaches you to perform exercises that target the injured area. When your brain has been injured, it needs to re-learn and practice the functions that have been lost. Neurofeedback is a safe and effective way to accomplish this goal.
Studies investigating the effectiveness of neurofeedback therapy for people with brain injury have shown that improvements can be made in both short- and long-term memory. The ability to hold attention improves as well. In one case, an individual who suffered a brain tumor, as well as traumatic injury, experienced improvements on a range of functions after Neurofeedback treatment.
Effective therapy for mild to complex cases
When you come to us with a brain injury, we base our treatment protocols on research and clinical experience. For very complicated cases, we will acquire a quantitative EEG map (qEEG). This technology gives us the ability to see what areas of the brain have been impacted by the injury. We then target these areas for neurofeedback training. Over time, we can see improvements happening in the brain through the information displayed on the computer screen.
This will increase your motivation during a time when you need to work hard towards your recovery. When you see the results of your efforts, your hope is restored and you know you can heal. In neurofeedback therapy, we can see improvements in a range of functions.
A new era in neuroscience and healing
This is an exciting time for neuroscience, as we now have technology that allows for targeted therapeutic intervention strategies for those who have suffered a brain injury. The scientific community once thought that brain injuries were permanent and unfixable. Today we know for certain that this is not true. We can see that the brain can heal and improve throughout the entire lifespan.
If you have experienced injury due to traumatic closed head injury, stroke, or tumor, do not give up hope. We can help you with improvement and recovery.
