Chiropractic Meridian ID Neurofeedback For Children With ADHD

Remember driving in your car and turning the dial on your radio trying to get to your favorite station, searching for a clear signal amidst a sea of static. When the signal is clear you get to enjoy your favorite songs, but if the dial gets thrown off even a little then chaos ensues. For children with ADHD, this analogy often reflects their daily struggles.

Your child has so much potential, but ADHD is a struggle that more and more children are dealing with. This can impact relationships, sports, and school. You want to see your child thriving at the level you know they are capable of. Instead of them battling with self-esteem, frustration, grades, and emotional outbursts.

Their brains are on a quest for the right frequency, yet altered brain signals act like that erratic static, disrupting their focus.

At our practice, where we specialize in optimizing brain health whether it is from a neurodevelopmental disorder, acquired brain injury, or even neurodegenerative conditions. No matter what impacts the health of the brain, there are ways to improve brain health.

To get the orchestra back on track where everything is in sync and beauty ensues. There is a method that can do this, it is “neurofeedback”


WHAT IS NEUROFEEDBACK?

At its core, neurofeedback is like a personal training session for the brain. This non-invasive technique monitors brainwave patterns and provides real-time feedback, allowing children to learn how to self-regulate and optimize their brain function.

For children we have them watch something they enjoy, but the kicker is this. The screen will dim and the volume will go down if their brain waves aren’t in a healthy range. This encourages the child to maintain focus and as a result the brain waves are being fine tuned into a state of homeostasis.

As the therapy sessions go on, the brain waves will continue to be reinforced allowing changes to occur. This is based upon the concept of neuroplasticity, the brain’s ability to change based upon stimulation.

Over time, this training can lead to sustained improvements in attention, impulse control, mood, and overall cognitive performance as the brain waves come back into balance.

NEUROFEEDBACK FOR ADHD IN MERIDIAN ID

While pills and traditional therapies have their place in some cases, more and more parents don’t want their children on medications and believe there is a better path. Neurofeedback offers an alternative path – one that’s natural, holistic, and tailored to each child’s unique brain.

  1. Evidence-Based Results: Studies highlight the effectiveness of neurofeedback for ADHD (1). Children who undergo this training often show reduced symptoms and improved academic performance.
  2. Lasting Effects: Unlike medications that only provide benefits while they are being taken. The benefits of neurofeedback can last long after sessions end due to neuroplasticity. It’s like molding something, it will continue to keep its shape unless something comes and changes it.
  3. Confidence: Neurofeedback empowers children, giving them control and a sense of accomplishment as they notice they are doing well with the therapy. Over time, they gain confidence in their ability to perform at school, interact with others, and reach their potential.

CREATING A BRIGHTER FUTURE FOR YOUR CHILD

If you’ve felt the weight of watching your child struggle with ADHD, know this – there’s a beacon of hope, and it shines brightly with neurofeedback. When neurofeedback is utilized appropriately it can make a world of difference.
