When thinking about Neurofeedback most would assume that it is most suitable for those who have neurological issues or some form of a mental disability. Although Neurofeedback has its roots in being a reliable treatment modality for ADHD and Epilepsy, neurofeedback has the ability to improve the high performing brain. Whether you are a high school athlete, collegiate athlete, professional athlete, CEO of a company, or an individual that's looking to get a competitive edge.

 

At EBP, Using qEEG Brain mapping, we are able to identify low or high brainwave activity which may cause issues related to the inability to focus, mental fatigue, and/or inability to properly manage stress. If the individual is not able to regulate these issues, it can negatively impact the performance. With a  treatment regimen according to your specific goals and the way your individual brain performs, Neurofeedback has the ability to:

 

  • Increase focus                       

  • Improve Coordination           

  • Improve sleep 

  • Increase mental energy.     

  • Improve Impulse control     

  • Increase mental flexibility 

Attention and Focus

Sports Performance places heavy demands on the brain to focus while ignoring distracting stimuli. Different sports place different demands on the brain overall, the ability to be attentive and focused would directly impact an individual's performance in a healthy manner. Neurotherapy improves a person's ability to stay on task while maintaining a high level of brain function.

Improves Emotional Control

One of the most difficult aspects of being an athlete is the ability to perform without being influenced by emotional triggers. Anxiety over a big upcoming game or the pressure to perform to high standards can negatively influence how an athlete performs. Neurofeedback stabilizes mood and emotional perception, including the perception and ability to cope with stress. This decreases anxiety overall, making moments of high demand easier to emotionally manage. Neurofeedback helps decrease distractibility caused by these emotions so an athlete can perform optimally.

Increase Cognitive Functioning 

As a person ages, the brain naturally begins to decline in certain areas, such as memory. Just as a person must exercise the body to keep in prime physical shape, fitness for the brain is also necessary to keep the brain functioning at its best. Neurofeedback acts as this exercise for the brain to maintain its highest ability. As an athlete age, performance quality does not weaken as it naturally would, as the brain stays in peak condition.
