Does BrainCore Therapy Work? A Personal Note from Dr. Will

by | Sep 24, 2023

Over the years, I’ve encountered countless patients and families who ask me the pivotal question: “Does BrainCore Therapy really work?” I understand the skepticism, especially in the realm of neurological disorders and the quest to find help free of pharmaceuticals. I’ve been on both sides – as a healthcare professional and as a patient, experiencing my own struggles with anxiety. Today, I’d like to shed light on this breakthrough treatment from my unique vantage point.


Enter BrainCore Therapy

BrainCore Therapy intrigued me from the outset. Here was a non-invasive, drug-free approach, aiming to retrain the very neural pathways of the brain. A form of neurofeedback therapy that employs real-time displays of brain activity to help teach the brain self-regulation. Built upon the foundation of neuroplasticity – the brain’s inherent ability to reshape and adapt – this therapy focuses on harnessing the brain’s potential for positive change. By offering insights into the electrical patterns of the brain, BrainCore Therapy seeks to assist in achieving optimal neural performance.

The Science Behind Neurofeedback

So, how does it work? At the core of BrainCore Therapy is neurofeedback. Through my years of practice, I’ve delved deep into the research behind this technique. Studies reveal that neurofeedback can lead to notable and lifechanging improvements for those who suffer from various neurological disorders.

There are three main components:

Neuroplasticity: Central to BrainCore Therapy’s effectiveness is the concept of neuroplasticity – the brain’s inherent ability to restructure its neural connections in response to experience. This adaptability enables the brain to modify its behavior based on new information or environmental changes.

Monitoring Brainwave Activity: BrainCore Therapy monitors brainwave activity through a process known as Quantitative Electroencephalography (QEEG). QEEG allows for visualization of the brain’s electrical patterns, highlighting areas that may benefit from modulation.

Real-time Feedback: Neurofeedback provides real-time feedback, allowing patients to understand and modify their brainwave activity. This leads to improved focus, better impulse control, and enhanced overall cognitive and emotional functionality.

If you’re wondering what a session is like, let me walk you through it. It all starts with a “brain mapping” session, also known as a QEEG. Now, I’ve seen the apprehension in the eyes of many as they imagine this process. But rest assured, it’s non-invasive. We place a cap on the patient’s head to measure the brain’s electrical activity. This provides a detailed insight into the brain’s current state and provides information to customize the therapy for the individual patient. As sessions progress, the patient engages in tasks that are sometimes as simple and entertaining as watching a music video or solving a puzzle. These tasks are designed to stimulate balanced, efficient brainwave patterns. Over time, the repeated training sessions help the brain “rewire” itself, promoting healthier neural responses.

What Conditions Does BrainCore Therapy Help Manage?

ADHD: Characterized by inattention, impulsivity, and hyperactivity, ADHD poses significant challenges to many children and adults. BrainCore Therapy has shown promise in alleviating ADHD symptoms without reliance on medication.

Anxiety: By modulating the brain’s response to stress and promoting relaxation, BrainCore Therapy can offer relief from anxiety.

Migraines and Tension Headaches: Fluctuations in brainwave activity have been linked to migraines and tension headaches. Through regulation, BrainCore Therapy can reduce the frequency and severity of these episodes.

Sleep Disorders: Sleep is regulated by brainwave patterns. By training the brain to adopt healthier patterns, BrainCore Therapy can improve sleep quality and duration.

Depression: BrainCore Therapy seeks to rebalance brainwave activities, potentially ameliorating the dysregulated patterns often seen in depression.

Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI): For those grappling with the aftermath of TBI, BrainCore Therapy offers hope by promoting neural reorganization and improving cognitive functions.

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD): By targeting and training specific brain regions, this therapy can be a complementary approach in managing OCD’s intrusive thoughts and repetitive behaviors.

Final Thoughts

The question still stands, “Does BrainCore Therapy work?” Based on my experience as a healthcare professional and a patient, the foundation in the concept of neuroplasticity which is backed by scientific studies, and the countless success stories – I wholeheartedly believe it does. I am often humbled by the stories shared by patients post-therapy and it’s truly rewarding to help them achieve freedom from their symptoms. Like every therapy, it’s essential to understand it thoroughly, set realistic expectations and approach it with an open mind.

If you’re curious or considering BrainCore Therapy for yourself or a loved one, I’d love to chat, which is why I offer free consultations for anyone who has questions and wants a better understanding of BrainCore Therapy. Don’t hesitate to reach out to my office to schedule some time with me, happy to answer your questions and discuss how BrainCore Therapy can help you live and feel better.
