Neurofeedback Q&A

 

 

What is neurofeedback?

Neurofeedback is a type of therapy that seeks to correct neurological problems by using real-time displays of brain activity to teach you how to self-regulate certain brain functions. 

Sensors placed on your scalp can measure your brain activity and detect any brain functions that are inefficient, which show up as abnormal brain wave patterns. 

Your provider at Total Health Solutions Medical Center gradually coaxes you away from abnormal patterns and toward more efficient patterns using a combination of therapy and rewards. 

This eventually teaches your brain to start naturally producing more efficient brain waves through a process called operant conditioning, which works subconsciously. 

Eventually, you no longer need the feedback and the rewards to produce these more efficient patterns, so the results permanent. You can think of neurofeedback as training wheels that improve your neurological functioning while gently guiding your brain toward being able to work without them.


What are the potential benefits of neurofeedback?

Effective neurofeedback therapy can drastically improve your neurological functioning in a number of ways and can lead you to achieve any number of the following:

 

  • Enhanced cognitive performance
  • Better memory
  • Improved social interaction
  • Decreased anxiety
  • Improved sleep
  • Reduced irritability
  • Decreased hyperactivity
  • Enhanced attention and focus

 

Because of its ability to alter neurological functioning, neurofeedback therapy is a potential solution for many conditions that demonstrate abnormal brain activity, such as:

 

  • ADHD
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Panic attacks
  • Learning disorders
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder
  • Head injuries
  • Concussions
  • PTSD

By improving your ability to self-regulate your brain function, neurofeedback helps to normalize brain activity and reduce or even eliminate many of the symptoms associated with these neurological problems.


What’s the process for neurofeedback therapy?

Your first few neurofeedback appointments at Total Health Solutions Medical Center are consultation and diagnostic sessions. 

The team discusses your symptoms and personal history, your expectations of neurofeedback, and the costs and time associated with the treatments, and answers any questions you might have about the process.

If you and your provider decide that neurofeedback therapy is a good treatment option for you, they then make a map of your brain with a device called a quantitative electroencephalogram (QEEG), which is a cap embedded with sensors that go over your head and measure your brain’s electrical signals. 

These signals are then analyzed by a computer that creates a map of the surface of your brain, indicating any problem areas.

Using this brain map, the team then devises a treatment plan that typically involves 2-3 weekly sessions of 30-45 minutes each. Depending on the condition being treated, it could take between 30-60 sessions to achieve permanent results.
