Clinical Studies on Neurofeedback - Make an informed decision For Drug-Free Care

Posted by Dr. Karl R.O.S. Johnson, DC on Sat, Jan 14, 2017

ClearMindNeurofeedbackPhoto3-edited.jpgNeurofeedback is among the most exciting technological advances in medicine. Studies are emerging that confirm what practitioners have witnessed for years.

In 2012, the American Academy of Pediatrics underwent a rigorous review of all the available data on neurofeedback.  The following policy statement was developed from this review process:

The American Academy of Pediatrics approved biofeedback and neurofeedback as a Level 1 or “best support” treatment option for children suffering from ADHD.

Research and clinical studies show many cognitive issues which are unresponsive to medication or psychotherapy often can be resolved within 20-40 Neurofeedback therapy sessions. Others require a greater number of sessions. Chronic,  longstanding emotional and physical issues, including those complicated by  substance abuse, can show marked improvement within 20 treatments.

2009 Clinical Study for Neurofeedback and ADHD

In 2009 one of the best clinical trials so far on the effectiveness of Neurofeedback on ADHD was published.  In this trial researchers studied 102 children with ADHD, age 8-12 years, for 36 sessions of Neurofeedback and compared it to 36 sessions of computerized attention skills training as a the control.  Researchers carefully rated progress using pre-training, intermediate and post-training assessments completed by parents and teachers.  In their findings, researchers found that Neurofeedback was more effective than the control group doing only attention skills training and thus established clinical efficacy for Neurofeedback that was statistically significant.

Neurofeedback for Autism Spectrum Disorder

In 2007 the Journal of Neurotherapy published a study demonstrating the effectiveness of Neurofeedback for Autism Spectrum Disorders.  In this study 37 patients were treated with 20 sessions of Neurofeedback Therapy.  Compared with the control group, significant improvement was found in Autistics who recieved treatment.  In fact, core ASD symptoms were reduced by 40%, with an 89% success rate!

“Research on autistic spectrum disorder (ASD) shows that neurofeedback (EEG biofeedback) can remediate anomalies in brain activation, leading to symptom reduction and functional improvement. This evidence raises the hopes for a behavioral, psychophysiological intervention moderating the severity of ASD.”
