Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, known to many as ADHD, is one of the fastest growing psychiatric illnesses affecting the American Youth. Reports have shown that the disorder is mostly diagnosed among children, but it goes on to become a problem up to the youth stage. Research also indicates that a tiny percentage of the adult population suffers from this brain disorder. Among the few adults, women are the most susceptible.
As the disorder continues to cause a conundrum in the society, more and more scientists have come up with a variety of treatment options. Initially, the only treatments for ADHD were either talk therapy or medication. However, the avenue continues to grow. Neurocore Brain Performance Centers for one, have come up with Neurotherapy as a treatment option for ADHD.
Neurotherapy, or otherwise known as EEG biofeedback, is a form of treatment that employs the use of electroencephalography in real time to aid the patients by painting a clear picture of how the brain is functioning. Once this information is acquired, the patient will then be put through neurofeedback training. This is a form of treatment where the practitioners get to monitor the brain wave activity of the patient as they put them through a series of activities like playing games, listening to music or watching a movie. What happens is that the moment the brain activity becomes unbalanced, the event automatically halts. All the information collected is then used to tailor a treatment plan that is unique to every patient.
