Lyme Disease in West Greenwich

Chiropractic West Greenwich RI Lyme Disease

Lyme disease in West Greenwich is a bacterial infection caused primarily by Borrelia burgdorferi, which is most often transmitted to humans through a black-legged tick bite. Lyme disease causes a rash, often in a bull's-eye pattern, and flu-like symptoms. It can be life threatening if left untreated as people may develop problems with the nervous system, heart, and joints.

Lyme disease is the fastest-growing infectious disease in the world with more than 400,000 new cases in the United States and 85,000 new cases in Europe each year. Lyme disease has been reported in every continent except Antarctica. Research shows that many Lyme patients do not respond to antibiotic therapy and go on to develop Post-Treatment Lyme Disease Syndrome, which often involves neurological impairment, arthritis, cognitive deficits, neuropathy and multiple other persistent symptoms. For those who develop Post-Treatment Disease Syndrome the effects can be devastating and debilitating.

Neurofeedback Therapy Treatment for Lyme Disease

Lyme Disease is known to be associated with an abnormal brain functioning pattern.  Using Qeeg (Quantitative Electroencephalogram) technology we can identify the brain patterns of a healthy optimal brain and a slow low activation unhealthy pattern between areas of the brain. Neurofeedback Therapy can change the brain wave pattern to the more optimal brain wave pattern proven to be symptom-free. By improving the way the brain is performing it can then reduce the symptoms of Lyme Disease.

Neurofeedback Therapy is clinically proven with a successful 60 years legacy and long-lasting benefits. It is Drug-Free, Non-Invasive, Painless, and has no side effects. If you are struggling with any of these Lyme symptoms you should be evaluated to improve your way of life. Contact us today to book your Qeeg appointment as Lyme Disease is not to be ignored.
