What is neurofeedback?
Biofeedback is a method of gaining insight into your body's functions using instruments to measure and record them. Neurofeedback is a type of biofeedback designed to gain insight into and retrain your brain by monitoring brain activity. Neurofeedback is a safe, drug-free treatment for many conditions with a low risk of side effects.
How does it work?
Neurofeedback uses electroencephalography, or EEG to monitor your brain activity, body temperature, and other functions. A neurofeedback training session consists of the provider reading your brain waves, and the brain-computer interface producing computerized sounds and images to guide you back to a more calm and focused state. Neurofeedback in Franklin Square, NY, encourages neuroplasticity and helps train neurological coordination within and between the brain's networks. This increase in brain activity can ease many different symptoms.
Your doctor will recommend a series of sessions over the course of several months for the best results. At least 20 sessions are recommended to see results, and then you schedule another group of 20 sessions to maintain those results. Neurofeedback works best in conjunction with therapy and can be used on patients with or without medications. Retraining your brain has long-lasting effects and a low risk of side effects.
