Cold Laser Therapy with Neurofeedback
Cold Laser Therapy is an integral part of the BrainCore Therapy System. Cold laser involves the application of low level concentrated light. Unlike high-power medical laser, which are widely used to safely cut and remove tissue, the Low Level Laser penetrates the surface of the skin with no heating effect or damage. Low level cold laser has been used to control pain and facilitate healing of soft tissue, however, it has also been proven to be effective in helping people quit smoking. This is because the light introduced using a cold laser, stimulates nerve bundles triggering the brain to release endorphins which calm the nervous system.
Endorphins trigger the pleasure centers in the brain creating the release of the feel good hormones such as dopamine and serotonin. This acts as a positive reinforcement of the neurofeedback training. It is completely non invasive and painless. By associating the training with what the brain considers a positive experience (the release of endorphins); the training session is reinforced producing a stronger effect for the patient. The patient responds much quicker to the BrainCore Therapy when the BrainCore Cold Laser is part of the treatment. The BrainCore Therapy System is the ONLY neurofeedback training system that incorporates cold laser treatment as part of the neurofeedback training protocol. This may explain the superior results the BrainCore System is able to achieve.
