Treating ADHD With Biofeedback Therapy

Until recently when a young person would be diagnosed with ADHD the common course of treatment would be medication and possibly some type of therapy. Medications may turn into a long term commitment that may need adjustment over the long term. This was the situation that 8 year old Jackson Pojeski might have faced. Jackson has been having concentration problems with feelings of being overwhelmed with the simplest of tasks such as putting laundry in his hamper, or finishing his homework. Jackson’s mother, Tiffany, decided to try a biofeedback program through Neurocore. Read more at about Neurocore.

Neurocore offers an alternative to traditional medicine and other therapies. The program that Neurocore uses is a biofeedback system that works to help change negative brain behaviour patterns into positive choices. Patients are given a comprehensive analysis when first admitted into the program as a patient. That way the staff can see a whole picture of the patient’s mental status and design a plan to deal with specific issues.

When Tiffany’s son, Jackson, started the program, they were skeptical about outcomes. Now, two years after graduating through the program and completing 40 treatments, Jackson is a different child. He is able to focus, the stress and anxiety is minimal, and according to his mother, Jackson is enjoying life once more. With Neurocore treatments, once a patient has made it through the program and made the positive changes needed for good mental health the changes are a permanent change.

Biofeedback works by rewarding the brain with good choices. Patients are hooked up by way of electrodes attached to the ears and head. These electrodes monitor brainwaves and activity. Then patients are shown movies as the patient is watching the movie if the brain wanders down a mentally negative pathway, the movie will shrink or disappear until the patient can make positive choices. Patients are also taught positive breathing techniques for calming and supporting an upset patient.
