What is Neurofeedback Therapy?
Neurofeedback therapy is a method for treating various cognitive or mental health concerns without the use of prescription medication. This method can be used with patients of varying ages but is especially helpful for treating children dealing with conditions such as:
Neurofeedback therapy is painless and non-invasive and involves retraining or conditioning the area of the brain that is contributing to the unwanted symptoms. For example, patients who experience chronic anxiety can feel like their brain has become stuck in a state of heightened sensitivity. It’s as if the brain has become programmed or wired to produce anxious thoughts, which makes it difficult to stop those thoughts. Neurofeedback therapy helps “rewire” the brain and diminish anxiety.
How Neurofeedback Therapy Works
At our office in Franklin Square, NY, neurofeedback therapy is administered or carried out by means of a “video game.” While kids play, the game records their brain waves and gives kids feedback about their brain activity. The way children win the game is by increasing the desirable brain wave frequencies.
This approach to treating various conditions, such as ADHD or anxiety, without medication is extremely effective. Children develop new brain patterns and the results are long-lasting. Dr. Clauselle recommends most kids undergo neurofeedback therapy between two and three times per week, which helps children experience positive results more quickly. Research has shown neurofeedback therapy yields positive results much more quickly than traditional talk therapy.
If you have a child who struggles with anxiety, depression, ADHD, or another similar condition, neurofeedback therapy could be beneficial. Dr. Clauselle can explain more about this groundbreaking therapeutic method and help you decide if it is right for your child.
