What is Neurofeedback?
Neurofeedback (also called neurotherapy or EEG biofeedback) has proven to be an effective treatment for ADHD, and is especially useful for patients who can’t tolerate medication or are concerned about the long term effects of using drugs. Others have used neurofeedback as a way to reduce the amount of medication needed to control their symptoms. Using neurofeedback, children, teens and adults with ADHD learn how to increase beta brain waves (associated with focused attention) or the sensorimotor rhythm (associated with behavioral control) and decrease theta waves (associated with inattention and loss of focus/concentration).
