Please join us for Next STEP on Friday, March 22, 2019 from 12:00pm - 1:00pm, as we welcome Dr. Tami Fragedakis of Capital Biofeedback. She will be here to discuss Biofeedback and Neurofeedback as adjuncts to therapy.
Biofeedback and neurofeedback are geared toward helping patient’s following stroke, concussion, traumatic brain injury, post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety, sleep problems and ADHD.
In a basic sense, biofeedback is a method of gaining information by monitoring skin temperature, blood pressure, heart rate, brainwaves and other bodily conditions to help promote control over our normally involuntary bodily processes. This is done through conditioning and training in self-regulation.
Neurofeedback teaches the brain to change itself. It helps with attention, mood, behavior, cognition, and more. In simple terms, neurofeedback is positive reinforcement for the brain. It teaches the brain how to be better balanced.
