Researchers have found that several parts of the brain are involved in fear and anxiety. Panic attack treatment involves treating the brain, neurofeedback is proven to be successful in creating positive change in the brain.
People who experience a panic attack have sudden and repeated attacks of fear that last for several minutes. Sometimes symptoms or attacks may last longer. A panic attack is characterized by a fear of disaster or of losing control even when there is no real danger. A person may also have a strong physical reaction during a panic attack. It may feel like having a heart attack. A Panic attack can occur at any time, and many people with panic disorder worry about and dread the possibility of having another attack.
A person with panic disorder may become discouraged and feel ashamed because he or she cannot carry out normal routines like going to the store or even driving.
People who experience a panic attack generally have: a feeling of being out of control during attacks, an intense worry about when the next attack will happen, avoidance or fear of places where panic attacks have occurred in the past, and physical symptoms during an attack. Including racing heart, sweating, breathing problems, dizziness, feeling cold or hot, numb or tingling hands, chest pain, and or stomach pain.
Panic disorder sometimes runs in families, but no one knows for sure why some people have it, while others don’t. We do know that respitory biofeedback changes the way we are breathing, which can change our heart rate, by changing our heart rate we change the automic nervous system. Neurofeedback when used as panic attack treatment can change the way the neurons are firing and put the brain into a balanced, calm state.
