Dr. Cannizzaro Recommends Neurofeedback to Patients

In accordance with our pledge to treat children with the most natural and least invasive methods available, we recommend neurofeedback.  Neurofeedback (also called brain biofeedback) provides long-term benefits without risk of damage or dependence on the treatment.

As a safe and drug-free approach, neurofeedback has proven to be an effective treatment for ADD/ADHD, anxiety, learning disabilities, memory struggles, behavioral issues and emotional issues. Neurofeedback therapy has become a critical part of our evidence-based integrative program.

Does Neurofeedback Really Work?

The short answer is YES.  Neurofeedback therapy has been in use for over 40 years, but is surprisingly unknown, despite very positive neurofeedback reviews by patients.  Data from clinical findings show a success rate of 80% to 90% for clearing ADD/ADHD symptoms and a 70% to 80% success rate for clearing anxiety symptoms.  Other studies have shown that neurofeedback therapy outperforms medication therapy 3 to 1.  Neurofeedback is scientifically-based with a proven ability to correct behavioral and emotional issues on a long-term basis.

Our article, Neurofeedback: An Effective Therapy for ADD, ADHD and Anxiety provides even more detail about how neurofeedback works.

Neurofeedback Therapy is Easy & Painless

When you are sleeping, reading, learning, listening or focusing, your brain must “tune in” to specific “radio stations” in order to perform effectively.  Processing difficulties occur when the brain is not in tune with these frequencies.  After an initial consultation, an individual protocol is developed.

There are different methods used by neurofeedback practitioners.  Sometimes, electrodes are placed on the scalp.  They pick up the patient’s brain activity during the session and transmit them through wires to a software program.  Other methods require only a device attached the the forehead with a headband.  Sensors then transmit brain activity to the program.  Neither method hurts!

Drug-Free, Effective Solution for Your Child’s Struggles

Neurofeedback is a long-term solution for the struggles your child may have with ADD/ADHD, anxiety, learning and memory, or behavior and emotional issues.  Neurofeedback is personalized, not a one-size-fits-all pill.  There are no side-effects, just the positive results of balancing the brain.
