Neurofeedback and Performance: The Infinite Benefits


Do you want to improve your attention and focus? Would you like to have more control over your emotions? Are you someone who wants to be proactive about the inevitable cognitive decline that comes with age? Do you want to improve your sleep pattern and habits? Do you feel effected in some way by your daily stressors? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions please continue reading about the infinite benefits of Neurofeedback.

Neuro-what? Neurofeedback. Neurofeedback is one of the many tools we use in our brain-healthy programs. For purposes of this blog post, I will be discussing Neurofeedback in terms with our performance programs, Brain Resilience and Brain Optimization. Optimal brain health and function should be the main concern to everyone striving to be the best. The better a person’s brain functions, the better the person functions overall. Neurofeedback training is becoming one of the most popular forms of biofeedback. It improves a person’s ability to perform at their best. It uses advanced technology and operand conditioning to measure and self-regulate your brainwaves. Using the information and data collected from your Brain Mapping evaluation, the professionals here at Concussion Care Center then carefully determine the most effective method to implement this training tool. Neurofeedback is scientifically proven, highly effective, non-invasive and painless training method helping you to improve brain functioning without the side effects of prescription medication. Neurofeedback is a valuable tool to bring the brain back on track after day-to-day stress, or to facilitate peak performance for corporate executives, business owners, students, artists, amateur and professional athletes. Neurofeedback for Performance enables you to:
• Gain mastery over anxiety,
• Make better decisions and gain greater ability to think clearly,
• Solve complex problems at will and work smarter all day long
• Learn difficult subjects effortlessly
• Better manage distraction and maximize your focus and productivity
• Improve quality of sleep and memory
• Regulate your emotions and energy to perform at your brain prime time
• Stay cool under pressure when expectation goes out of control

After some quick research, I found that successful neurofeedback
training have been used by several Olympic teams, including our own USA Team and Canada. Other top athletic clubs and organizations across the world like Chelsea, Manchester United, and AC Milan also use neurofeedback in their training methods. I also found that NASA pilots and other high performance organizations like the European Space Agency implement neurofeedback into their training as well. How cool is that? You can start training your brain like Astronauts do! One Olympic team praised neurofeedback training and even stated that it was their “secret weapon” in success.
I think that its safe to say that neurofeedback isn’t well known to the general public just yet. However, this new age top performance tool is now available in your own backyard to start benefiting from!

Neurofeedback allows us to gain information about your brainwave activity and use that information to produce changes in the brain for better brain function and optimization. Whether you have had a traumatic brain injury that you were aware of or not –a lot of people adhere brain injuries throughout life without seeking proper treatment- neurofeedback can be extremely beneficial in all cases. This is not only because of neurofeedback, but also because of neuroplasticity. Neuroplasticity is the brain’s natural ability to reorganize itself by creating new neural networks and correcting already existing connections.

Thanks to neuroplasticity, neurofeedback is able to teach the brain to function normally once again, even if it has been many years since the initial injury or trauma. Even after day-to-day stress, deadlines and due date anxiety, busy daily schedules, or something that catches you off guard, neurofeedback is one training tool that can literally put your brain and mindset back on track.

Maximizing results and bettering your brain health and function are the main goals of our proven method, procedures, and protocol. Neurofeedback can also help you to improve:
• Attention and concentration
• Cognitive abilities
• Emotional well-being
• Peak performance
Determining the top benefit of neurofeedback is hard to pin point, but I think we could all agree that Neurofeedback being safe and effective for all ages is up there. Each lifestyle places different demands on the brain, so treatment protocol differs case to case.
