A study in last month’s Pediatrics journal proved that neurofeedback, a drug-free, non-invasive treatment, clearly improves attention spans and reduces both hyperactivity and impulsive behavior in children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorders (ADHD).

“I’ve been practicing Braincore Neurofeedback Therapy for more than three years and I’ve seen great success with both children and adults with ADHD. This new study proves what I’ve already seen—that it works!” said Dr. Sherri Zaffrin, chiropractor and neurofeedback therapist.

Dr. Zaffrin explains that neurofeedback works along with ADHD medications to “retrain the brain” to focus and operate more efficiently.  When new patients visit her office, the first step is to perform an electroencephalogram (EEG).   “An EEG helps to confirm the ADHD diagnosis.” Dr. Zaffrin has seen the change. “The Braincore Neurofeedback technology is based on a training procedure that effectively teaches people how to control their own brainwaves. This self-regulation of brain activity can provide relief of symptoms associated with ADHD.”

Neurofeedback is completely non-invasive and is considered safe by the Food & Drug Administration (FDA). In fact the FDA recognizes that neurofeedback has never produced a serious side effect since it was first discovered over 40 years ago.

The study published in Pediatrics divided 104 elementary school children with ADHD into three groups. One group received neurofeedback, the second received computer-based cognitive training, and the third did not receive any treatment.  Children who received either therapy had better attention spans than those who received no therapy.  Neurofeedback therapy worked best because it reduced hyperactive and impulsive behaviors as well—and when checked after six months they retained the benefits!
