Neurofeedback Treatment for ADHD/ADD in Cary

Eliminate the symptoms long-term with neurofeedback

People with ADD and ADHD can struggle with managing their emotions, are easily distracted, and find it difficult to stay focused, even with the best intentions. This affects both children and adults, and the symptoms are frequently related to imbalances in brainwave patterns. Neurofeedback training can help balance the brain by creating healthier neural pathways that are more efficient and can improve focus, concentration, and many other cognitive skills.

What are the typical brainwave imbalances seen with ADD and ADHD?

Patients with ADHD generate an abundance of low-frequency delta or theta brain waves, and a shortage of high-frequency beta brain waves.

THETA BRAINWAVES when at a high proportion are associated with incomplete work, disorganization, and being easily distracted.

BETA BRAINWAVES are associated with efficient information processing and problem-solving.

Neurofeedback therapy increases the brain’s predisposition for beta brain waves and aims to diminish the frequency of delta and theta waves.

How does neurofeedback work?

First, a baseline measurement of neural activity is obtained. This is done with a qEEG – also known as a brain map. For example, an qEEG may show that a person with ADHD has an excess of slow delta or theta waves in the frontal lobes of the brain, indicating decreased activity in these areas. First used in 1924, an electroencephalogram is a safe and painless way to measure brainwave output. The actual test takes about twenty minutes.

Based on these results, Dr. Baric will formulate a personalized neurofeedback training protocol for you. Over time, these neurofeedback training sessions help your brain create long-term, healthier neural connections. The result – is an end to ADD/ADHD symptoms!

What does a typical training session look like?

A normal neurofeedback training session is 30 minutes long and is both fun and relaxing. All you have to do is sit down, relax, and watch a show of your own choosing. During the training session, two small sensors are lightly placed on your scalp. These sensors monitor brainwave output in real-time, allowing for continuous feedback. For example, if you have hyperactive or anxious thoughts due to too many Beta brainwaves or lose focus due to an imbalance of Alpha waves – the show goes dim. These feedback signals help the brain learn to stay more balanced by building new neural pathways.

Basically, your brain is learning to control its own brainwave balance using these repeated feedback signals. It`s an all-natural approach, and the new pathways created are permanent, resulting in long-term improvements in all areas of cognitive activity.
