Interviews with MD’s referring patients to neurofeedback
Interviews with Josh Prager, MD, who is Director of the Center for Rehabilitation for Pain Syndromes at UCLA Medical Plaza. Also Karami Harami, MD, a board certified family physician who works a lot with autistic children. She teaches at the USC Medical School and points out many colleagues are very skeptical. Prager describes his works with complex pain problems, and includes neurofeedback as part of a comprehensive program of indisciplinary care with pain management. He sees variable results with chronic pain – dramatic improvements and sometimes, it doesn’t work. Dr. Prager points out that there are no side effects – it either works, or doesn’t work. He’s used a variety of types of biofeedback for years. He felt a quantum leap in efficacy when he first started using neurofeedback. Patients with severe nerve pain when anxiety or a sleep disorder also associated tend to respond very well to neurofeedback. He says a large portion of his pain patients benefit, using neurofeedback as a piece of his multi-disciplinary therapies/treatments.
