Achieving Optimal Brain Function in Chicago IL
Are you you feeling stressed, having trouble focusing or feeling tired and achy?
It could be your brain is not functioning optimally. In today’s world people are constantly moving and often put themselves in stressful situations. This can have a permanent negative impact on the way the brain works.
Sometimes all that is needed is a little maintenance to keep your brain in top working order. Neurofeedback is designed to tune the brain to operate as efficiently as possible.
So Just What Is Neurofeedback?
Neurofeedback is the direct training of the brain in real time using advanced computer technology. Over multiple sessions the computer can tune the brain and teach it to function more efficiently, often with permanent results. Neurofeedback addresses brain dysregulation, which can cause many conditions like anxiety, depression, ADHD, sleep disorders, migraines, and more.
The Neurofeedback Process
When you come to our office in Chicago, you’ll find the process is easy and enjoyable. During a session, patients are connected to a computer using sensors. These sensors are noninvasive, no electrical current is put into the brain. The sensors only monitor brainwaves.
For the next 30 minutes, you either watch a movie, listen to music or listen to an audio book. When the computer detects irregular brainwaves, it will fade the video and sound. This will cause the patient to refocus their attention back on the movie or music until it returns to normal. This can happen hundreds of times during a single session. Eventually after multiple sessions, the brain starts to learn to stay in the healthy ranges on it’s own. As that happens the patient will see a reduction in their symptoms.
Neurofeedback does not directly target conditions and symptoms: it corrects irregular brainwaves and modifies timing patterns in the brain. The best part, results are often permanent.
The Benefits Of Neurofeedback
Neurofeedback Is Safe For All Ages
Why Does It Work So Well?
Research shows that people who suffer from neurological issues have irregular brainwaves. A person with ADD will have slower Beta brainwaves, which are responsible for attention and focus.
Training the brain can change these brainwaves over time, speeding them up or slowing them down where needed. Neurofeedback can improve alertness, attention, emotional regulation, behavior, cognitive function, and mental flexibility. When brainwaves are running at the right speed, users will often see a reduction in symptoms.
Results are often permanent, which may allow someone to eliminate medications completely. Where medications only manage the symptoms, the goal of neurofeedback is to address the underlying cause and restore normal brainwave function.
