When treating anxiety, attention deficit and other neurological disorders, it is the go-to solution for most medical practices to prescribe medications. At Knox Wellness, we take a more natural, comprehensive approach to total body wellness, and we offer neurofeedback as a way to “retrain” the brain and help create a new normal for the way you think and function.
Serving Knoxville and surrounding areas in Tennessee, Knox Wellness is led by Dr. Chris Siano. Contact us today to schedule a consultation and find out how neurofeedback therapy can benefit your mind and your body.
What is Neurofeedback Therapy?
During traditional biofeedback therapy, brain functions are optimized through electronic monitoring. This technique has evolved into neurofeedback therapy, a gradual learning process to retrain your mind. This innovative therapy can act as a standalone treatment or in conjunction with other options to help treat:
- Mental clarity and memory
- Sleep disorders
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Stroke recovery
- And more!
How Does Neurofeedback Therapy Work?
Neurofeedback and other biofeedback devices work by stimulating certain functions of the brain through gentle electromagnetic signals. This process utilizes electroencephalogram, or EEG, to measure the individual brain waves of the patient. Based on the unique needs of the patient, gentle and painless electrodes are attached to strategic points along the scalp.
During neurofeedback therapy, the patient and a trained member of our medical team can monitor brain wave activity in real time. The brain waves are sent to a computer and processed, where images and sound feedback are then turned into an experience similar to a video game that gradually improves the patient’s performance.
Can Neurofeedback Therapy Work for Me?
This is a gradual therapy that can treat your specific condition over time, and results may vary. While a wide range of men and women can qualify for neurofeedback therapy, it is not recommended for everyone. It may take multiple sessions in order to achieve optimal results, and our medical team will discuss what you can expect during your treatment process. Our comprehensive approach to whole body wellness could also include other therapies as well depending on your unique needs.
Is Neurofeedback Therapy Safe?
The advanced technology utilized during this therapy typically causes no pain and requires no downtime. Most patients experience this therapy without any side effects or complications afterward. Our medical team will share all relevant safety information with you prior to treatment.
