Braincore Therapy Taps Into The Power Of Your Brain To Regain Health

BrainCore therapy is a drugless approach to treating brain-based conditions. Using neurofeedback, chiropractor Dr. Jason Tharpe opens new pathways in the brain, triggering a life-changing response in patients dealing with:

What is NDS, and how can BrainCore therapy help ?

Neurological dysregulation syndrome/NDS is a condition that results from tension on the nervous system caused by partial dislocation of a joint, poor nutrition, stress, drugs, or trauma. BrainCore therapy, also known as neurofeedback, allows the nervous system to retrain itself to create new, more appropriate wave patterns and break the cycle of NDS.

Though the BrainCore technology is quite complex, the training activity is simple, painless, drugless, and non-invasive. We place surface electrodes on the scalp, allowing EEG activity to be transmitted to the computer screen. When the patient produces the desired brainwave, visual feedback is provided in the form of an animated game or a movie. If the patient’s brain stops producing the desired brain wave, the game or the movie stops playing.

As the nervous system reorganizes itself based on this instant feedback, the patterns begin to normalize. Over the course of 10 to 20 training sessions, the brain modifies itself to begin producing the appropriate brain waves at the appropriate times, resulting in an alleviation of the symptoms.

How can children benefit from BrainCore therapy?

BrainCore therapy has been proven to increase the ability to focus. Research studies have demonstrated that children who have completed the therapy show significant improvement in classroom performance.

A study at the University of Tennessee reported that 80% of the 250 children participating in the study demonstrated an improvement in their grade point average of 1.5 levels. IQ scores also improved significantly.

Do neurofeedback and medications work in the same way?

Medication can have an advantage in that they act immediately. They can be very useful and helpful to control disruptive behaviors; however, their effect only lasts as long as there is a sufficient level of the medication in the bloodstream.

According to a study at the University of California, Irvine, medications provide short-term benefits for the management of behavioral symptoms of inattention, impulsivity, and hyperactivity. However, medications do not produce long-term benefits on learning, achievement, or social adjustment. And the dangerous side effects of psych meds have been well documented.

On the other hand, BrainCore therapy takes longer to produce beneficial changes, but produces long-term benefits in all the key areas of attention span, impulse control, academic achievement, and social adjustment. Plus, it does not have the side effects of psych meds.
