Neurofeedback and Neurotherapy
A new treatment has been emerging in the last several decades for Attention Deficit Disorder and other mild brain-behavior problems —biofeedback of your brain waves. This is Neurofeedback, and the latest term is Neurotherapy. This method of treatment has been shown to be effective for a wide range of disorders besides Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD); it can help PMS, alcohol abuse, depression, mild brain dysfunction from a variety of causes (some examples are cognitive problems from cardiac bypass surgery, chronic fatigue syndrome, Lyme disease) and closed head injury. Patients learn how to self regulate their own brain states by watching feedback on the computer (including your favorite movie).
Treatment for Chronic Pain with Biofeedback in New York at the Brain Clinic
The most common treatment for chronic pain is drug therapy. The problem with this is that many of the medications can be addictive. And the addiction can sneak up on you. Before you know it, you might be craving to have this medicine. This has contributed to many problems in the country, one of which is the over-dose deaths from Oxycontin. In my office I use biofeedback and neurofeedback to treat pain conditions, and it has been effective.

We do a great deal of evaluations for extended time on high-stakes exams. The requirements for applying for extended time on standardized tests are demanding and vary from one testing organization to another. Dr. Thomas can help determine exactly how much testing and supplemental material would be helpful for your case but it is your responsibility to find out what the specific requirements and expectations are. Usually, the information for extended time requirements can be found on the testing organization’s web site. You must build a case for your request which includes extensive testing, a detailed report, as well as additional materials such as school records, letters from doctors, tutors, family members and teachers. The earlier you start, the better chance you have of building a strong case. Although Dr. Thomas has a high rate of success with these cases, there is no guarantee that your request will be granted.
