How Neurofeedback Helps Sleep!
Acute and chronic pain affects more than 116 million U.S. adults. Pain impacts our mood, quality of life, social interactions, and sleep. Traditionally, medication has been used to help with pain but it is becoming more clear that medication can be addictive and also ineffective in controlling pain.
New scientific breakthroughs show the close relationship between the brain and the body in pain perception and pain relief. Through maladaptive neural pathways, the brain “learns” to be in pain. Through neurofeedback, the brain can be taught NOT to be in pain. Neurofeedback goes into the part of the brain that is dysregulated and teaches it to form new pathways that are pain-free. In addition to chronic pain, neurofeedback can help with such conditions as fibromyalgia, inflammation, stomach/ bowel issues, headaches, and migraines. Stress, trauma, poor sleep, and an unhealthy lifestyle can intensify the pain. Neurofeedback can also help with these issues too so that pain is lessened.
Neurofeedback is regulated through state, national and international licensing/credentialing. It is evidence-based and supported by the American Psychological Association. Published, high-caliber peer-reviewed research demonstrates the effectiveness of neurofeedback. Millions of people around the world have discovered the benefits of neurofeedback in improving the quality of their lives and reducing their symptoms.
