Using medicine to treat disorders associated with brain regulation has become more and more prevalent in recent years. Ritalin usage has risen dramatically in recent years with prescriptions for the drug quadrupling in a decade, however the problem with all medicines, not just Ritalin, is that there are always unintended side effects involved such as anxiousness, trouble sleeping, high blood pressure. Not only this, but the medicines only work for as long as they are being took, meaning you would need to live with the unpleasant side effects of medicines for life, or with the original ailments that you were prescribed them for. Neurofeedback is a safe alternative to medicines as it shows no unintended side effects and there are no recorded cases of injury or side effects caused as a direct result of neurofeedback. Additionally, the results you can gain from using Neurofeedback can provide lasting benefits long after the course of treatment has ended.
Poor brain regulation has been linked with a variety of disorders and conditions that traditional medicine would treat with medicines or surgery that come with a number of risks and unwanted side effects. Neurofeedback however is a completely non invasive procedure, which has none of those nasty risks or side effects. In fact, in over half a century of clinical practice, there have been no reported damaging effects or cases where people’s health has deteriorated due to a course of Neurofeedback treatment. That’s not to say we don’t take very careful consideration of the impact the treatment may have on your life in other ways. Our practitioners are highly skilled in monitoring performance and assessing the changes in your behaviour and lifestyle over the course of the treatment to ensure we’re consistently updating and refining your treatment plan so as to give you the very best results.
For example, many of our patients when approaching us with a diagnosed condition, often present with other problems such as trouble sleeping or eating correctly. We will monitor these problems throughout the course of treatment as they can often give valuable clues into ways in which the treatment could be intensified or adapted. Of course, the best interests of the patient are always at heart when taking into account changes in a treatment plan.
