Regardless of how long after a neurological injury takes place, the brain can learn and change—generating new connections and strengthen existing connections. Results are lasting.
Neurofeedback is not simply a brain game and no energy is introduced into the brain. Just like exercising our muscles, we can exercise our brain to optimize functioning.
Neurofeedback has been found to be effective for sleep, mood, focus/attention, social awareness, learning and memory, impulse control, mental stamina, speech, motor skills, trauma, confidence, and much more. See the extensive list of research articles at International Society for Neurofeedback & Research (ISNR) website (scroll on right for desired topic).
Often there are trauma and/or addiction issues that complicate the recovery process. Biobalance Home services prioritizes the individual training approach, using evidence-based protocols, resulting from a functional evaluation.
Home Users can make tremendous progress with unlimited sessions in the convenience of the home.
Caregivers can also do their own training which helps with the stress of caregiving, eliminating frustrating dynamics that develop around behaviors, and confidence in using the system appropriately.
What about Dementia? There are many different forms of dementia. Factors to consider include current and past lifestyles, toxic exposure, medications, and head injuries, that can contribute to slowing of brain functioning over time. We evaluate “dementia” on a case-by-case basis to determine if home services are a good match.
Dr. Buck was trained in the field of rehabilitation counseling and is uses that foundation to support, advocate, and empower individuals with disabling conditions.
Traumatic Brain Injury: Neurofeedback was found to be more effective than traditional methods for intervening on symptoms resulting from traumatic brain injury.
During the 1960s, researcher Barry Sterman accidentally discovered that cats that had been trained through operant conditioning to increase amplitude of 12-15 hertz (SMR) were seizure resistant. This study was seminal in the field of neurofeedback and has led to many studies showing stabilization of seizure activity. More info on the ISNR website scroll down to Epilepsy).

We did the neurofeedback training as a family and had great results. From my experience I would say it improved my focus and clarity, giving me a sense of wellbeing. I felt more productive and efficient. As a family, it reduced everyone’s stress level and allowed for our time together to be more relaxed and enjoyable. I am glad we did it.
