QEEG & Neurofeedback
The electrical circuits in the brain can be assessed using a noninvasive scan technology called QEEG or quantitative electroencephalography. This is a cap that measures brainwaves leaving the skull and captures them in full-color 3D brain mapping reports that compare the patient’s brain to thousands of normal subjects.
This same cap can be used to teach the brain through feedback how to fire more efficiently and rest more deeply. This method is called neurofeedback and has been highly studied. QEEG and Neurofeedback can be applied to patients as young as 6 years old. Our system is the most advanced available today reaching deep brain structures using the s-loreta processing system that guides imaging and treatment.
Functional Neurological Exam and Rehab
1990-2000 was called the Decade of the Brain because of the National Institutes of Health-funded massive university imaging studies of all types of brain function.
These brain scans led to the knowledge of brain regions and their distinct functions. Examination methods became standardized and brain clinicians began to activate distinct brain regions with targeted precision. Today, physical examination and other testing can reveal very specifically where the brain problem is, and then therapies can be directed that stimulate those deficit areas perfectly.
Directed brain therapies are many, and could include specific balance training, eye movements, skin brushing, object or word identification, tilt table training, visual or auditory stimulations, double tasking, laser headset training, neurological muscle energy techniques, and many other fun, interesting and pain-free exercises.
Metabolic Balancing or Functional Medicine
The brain is bathed in a chemical soup within the cerebrospinal fluid that can either be sustaining or toxic for it. For the chemistry of the brain, urine and blood, we have lab tests, medical history, physical examination and imaging that can help us locate chemical imbalances.
Repairing such imbalances involves:
adding or subtracting foods from the diet,
adding or changing nutritional supplements or their serving size,
and changing exercise, sleep and other lifestyle habits.
