Neurofeedback Is a Great Treatment for Seniors

Posted on: May 30th, 2017 by Neurohealth Associates

We all know that getting older can have effects on your body… aches, pains, inability to output the same physical stamina as you once could. There is always exceptions to these problems for individuals who stay active and eat right. However, one thing that is often overlooked is how to keep your mind sharp and free from negative emotions as the brain naturally ages.

Things like Alzheimer’s or Dementia are commonly in focus for the aging brain, but things like anxiety, depression, stress, or fear can easily be left to the wayside as we think about our loved ones or neighbors who are in or past their Golden Years. It can be easy to forget that the world is changing at a rapid pace with respect to culture, technology and more.

Neuroplasticity for Seniors

Many seniors find success in neurofeedback treatment which employs a training commonly referred to as neuroplasticity, which is defined as: the ability of the brain to form and reorganize synaptic connections, especially in response to learning or experience or following injury. Through a regimen of neurofeedback treatments many seniors have experienced great relief of many conditions including but not limited to: anxiety, depression, stress, fear, Alzheimer’s, Dementia, and more.

What Clients Say About Us

Julie W.
Teachers made huge comments on his math skills and behavior. I also saw this at home with understanding of what I said to him registering more with him. I saw this in his eyes: recognition. Fewer outbursts of anger.

Anita M.
I am extremely happy with my son’s outcomes and feel very fortunate to have encountered Dr. Bonesteel early in my child’s life. This method has dramatically changed his ability to focus and take initiative. I feel confident that my son’s life has been dramatically enhanced. I can’t express my appreciation fully in words.

Mary B.
Dr. Bonesteel has masterfully, compassionately, and extremely kindly helped me navigate through a history of childhood and marital abuse, a child with twenty years of struggle with life-threatening physical and emotional illness, extended family discord, and disharmony with my child with severe depression. I am blessed to have found Neurohealth Associates.
