What is epilepsy?
Urachen and Symptoms in Epilepsy – Epilepsy Munich
Epilepsy is one of the most common neurological diseases. Approximately 50 million people worldwide suffer from epilepsy and approximately 2.4 million people are newly diagnosed every year.
Epilepsy is a chronic brain disease characterized by recurrent seizures. These manifest themselves as involuntary movements of individual body parts (focal or partial) or the entire body (generalized). Sometimes they are accompanied by unconsciousness. Such epileptic episodes are caused by increased electrical discharges in a group of brain cells. These discharges can occur in different regions of the brain, the consequences of which range from brief inattention or muscle twitching to persistent cramps. The frequency of seizures varies from less than one per year to several per day. Up to 10% of the world’s population experience a seizure in the course of their lives. Only from at least two non-provoked seizures one speaks of epilepsy.

Epilepsy Munich - treatment in our practice in Munich
How neurofeedback in our practice in Munich can help with epilepsy
Objective diagnostics for epilepsy in Munich
EEG diagnostics generally plays a major role in epilepsy. With the quantitative evaluation, individual herds and indications of accompanying symptoms can be identified. Often there are no clear epileptic patterns in the regular EEG either, but the special quantitative analysis nevertheless shows indications of seizures. Subsequently, a completely individual neurofeedback protocol can be created, which precisely approaches the conspicuous activity patterns.
Neurofeedback therapy for epilepsy in our practice in Munich
Epilepsy is one of the best-known areas of application for neurofeedback, as patients often experience an improvement very quickly. This applies to children as well as adolescents and adults.
Neurofeedback improves the targeted influence on brain waves/brain activity. This prevents epileptic seizures and reduces their number. In addition, the occurrence of auras can be reduced.
