Have you or a loved one suffered from a stroke?

Neurofeedback is clinically-proven effective in treating symptoms following a stroke, helping many patients increase independence and improve quality of life.

What is a stroke?

Stroke is a type of traumatic brain injury (TBI) that can often leave the brain with abnormal and irregular brain waves.  These types of injuries typically have no treatment options as the brain generally needs to repair itself, and injured brains are far more likely to experience trouble with this natural healing process.

Neurofeedback can help decrease the severity of stroke symptoms.

Stroke is a disorder that affects millions of Americans each year and occurs when the blood supply to any part of the brain is interrupted or severely reduced.  This disruption prevents the brain from getting oxygen and nutrients, and can kill (brain) cells within minutes.  When brain cells die during a stroke, bodily functions and abilities controlled by that area of the brain can be lost, sometimes temporarily but many times permanently.

Although some people can recover completely from a stroke, approximately 2/3rds of stroke victims live with some type of disability after the event. The degree of severity of stroke symptoms depends largely on where the stroke occurs in the brain and how much of the brain is damaged.

How can neurofeedback help?

By measuring and mapping the abnormal brainwave activity in a post-stroke brain, qEEGs have been shown to have a highly prognostic function in predicting recovery in cerebral, ishemic, and hemorrhagic stroke victims.  Neurofeedback promotes self-healing by slowly retraining the brain to return to normal functions using operant conditioning and the brain’s neuroplasticity.  It helps return brainwave functioning to optimal levels and therefore improve post-stroke symptoms such as:1,3

• confusion and memory loss

• trouble producing/understanding speech

• executive functioning

• trouble with gross motor skills such as ambulation, self-care, and ADL’s (activities of daily living)

• headaches/convergent issues

• numbness/weakness in arms or legs

• feelings of depression/anxiety

Jane’s Story:

“I had two strokes before I came here and my memory, concentration, and my focus and attention span were bad.  I couldn’t remember much at all.  After a few sessions I started to notice a difference in the way I was at home.  After neurofeedback I’m doing much better, I am driving and I wouldn’t drive before. I wouldn’t communicate much and now I get out and go to a couple different groups and go into crowds.  I am a teacher and now I am able to go back to work.”
