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. Both children and adults are affected by this, 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 ADD and ADHD often have an imbalance of Alpha and Beta brainwaves.  Too many Alpha waves on the left side of the brain can create challenges with the processing of information and difficulty doing more than one task at a time. An excess of Beta waves on the right side of the brain can lead to hyperactivity and poor impulse control in children or anxiety in adults.

One Parents Experience:

My son with ADHD tried medication for three months–he lost 10 pounds! He looked like a skeleton. After only four Neurofeedback sessions, the teacher said he was participating in class and doing much better. Would I recommend Neurofeedback to my friends and family? Yes, yes, yes!

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. First used in 1924, an electro-encephalogram 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.
