What is Neurofeedback?

Through the study of brainwaves and respectively received information, Neurofeedback helps our patients learn more about their conditions. We are able to locate the source of pain more directly, as well as additional discomforts, such as anxiety, depression, and physical symptoms. Neurofeedback helps reinforce positive changes that can allow for self-regulation to the nervous system, allowing for calmer control and reactions. This helps pave the way to a stable way of life.*

What is Biofeedback?

Biofeedback, similar to Neurofeedback, helps in the process of understanding information related to reactions. Biofeedback focuses on the body and learning to control seemingly autonomic functions, including heart rate, skin temperature, and even breathing. By learning to control subtle bodily changes, such as relaxing muscles and decreasing stress levels, we are able to help our Wallingford patients experience an improvement in their health.*

What is QEEG?

QEEG, which means quantitative electroencephalogram, is a personalized brain map that helps with understanding a patient’s condition. It is the first step in the treatment plan, as it allows us to analyze electrical patterns and activity on the surface of the scalp. This collected data is then compared to a computer data collection to check for repeated patterns and related symptoms, like depression and anxiety and more.* The QEEG is an essential step in the treatment process.

Common Neurofeedback & Biofeedback Questions:

How Does Neurofeedback Work?

Neurofeedback, which gets its name from the study of the brain (neuro) and collected information (feedback), places direct focus on cortical activity. This technique analyzes brainwaves and prepares our Wallingford clients for learning to control these brainwaves. Neurofeedback allows for a better understanding of various conditions and how the brain reacts to them, enabling our patients to then self-regulate unwanted cranial responses. Our advanced technology at the office of Dr. Roseann helps us track brainwave activity and start the process of a new electrical pattern. When this new pattern is established, we solidify it through a reward system for our Wallingford patients. With a self-regulation system built, there can be a more consistent environment created to diminish symptoms of the condition.

What Does the Neurofeedback Process Involve?

Our treatment processes vary from condition to condition and patient to patient. There is a basic process we undergo to help understand the process, which then helps us to create a specific treatment plan for our Wallingford clients. Regardless of the condition, we start with a QEEG brain map analysis. By interpreting individualized brainwave activity, we can make individualized treatment plans. This is done by Dr. Roseann herself. Similar to how the treatments can vary, the number of treatment sessions can differ as well. On average, our Wallingford patients visit the office two times a week. A treatment session consists of placing harmless sensors on the patient’s scalp and ears, which then measures brainwaves and cortical activity while a movie is played.

How Do I Get Started with Neuro/BioFeedback?

Dr. Roseann treats the Neurofeedback and Biofeedback treatment process carefully and seriously, making sure each patient receives the attention they deserve. A QEEG brain map analysis allows us to understand each patient’s condition on a technical level. This is how we begin each patient’s treatment experience. With the brain map data interpreted, we will develop a treatment plan for you. To get started on Neurofeedback or Biofeedback treatments, call us today to schedule a QEEG appointment.

How Do You Know Which Therapy I Need?

Each condition is different, each patient is different, and every patient may respond differently to various treatments. That’s why with Dr. Roseann, you will experience personalized treatment plans to care directly for your conditions. The QEEG data leads to individualized treatment plans that can involve Neurofeedback, Biofeedback, Advanced Regulation, or even a combination of these techniques. All of our therapeutic methods are safe and effective.*

How Do You Monitor Progress?

We monitor progress in three primary ways:

  • QEEG data analysis on determined intervals
  • Analysis of collected data on feedback sessions
  • Close and secure monitoring of symptoms
