Studies continue to be conducted to determine the efficacy of neurofeedback. While solid evidence is pending regarding the use of neurofeedback in the treatment of some conditions, several studies support the benefits of the intervention of neurofeedback. Positive results from neurofeedback therapy have been demonstrated in numerous case studies. These results are often long lasting because neurofeedback actually changes the way the brain works.

In the case of ADHD, or "attention deficit hyperactivity disorder', for example, several studies have found that 8 out of 10 (80%) of those with ADD/ADHD who are treated with neurofeedback therapy are able to leave the aggravating symptoms behind for many years with just 30-40 sessions in most cases.

The results you experience from a neurofeedback procedure could depend somewhat on the environment in which you receive the treatment. It can be more effective if it is performed where the problem you're trying to solve usually occurs. For instance, teenagers with ADHD may have better results when their neurofeedback sessions take place in the classrooms where they have difficulty concentrating.

Neurofeedback can be costly, however. This type of therapy is not always covered by insurance plans, and the cost for treatment can range from $90 - $150 for each session. Most practitioners offer payment plans for their clients. Some offer an interest free loan through http://www.CareCredit.com. In some instances, health insurance will reimburse a portion of the cost of the therapy.
