Quarterbacks and Neurofeedback
To kick off football season, we wanted to bring attention to a connection between football and neurofeedback, a service we offer at our clinic!
In the Netflix series “Quarterback,” Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins discusses his use of neurofeedback to help him stay focused and engaged during games. (Neurofeedback is mentioned in the fourth episode of “Quarterback,” when Kirk Cousins is discussing his training regimen)
What is Neurofeedback and How Does it Help Quarterbacks?
Neurofeedback is a type of biofeedback that uses real-time brainwave monitoring to help people learn to self-regulate their brain activity. It has been shown to be effective in improving a variety of cognitive functions, including attention, focus, and memory.
Furthermore, it does not just help quarterbacks and Cousins is not the only professional athlete who uses neurofeedback. Other notable users include:
- Stephen Curry
- LeBron James
- Tom Brady
In a quote about neurofeedback, Kirk Cousins says:
"Neurofeedback has been a great tool for me to help me stay focused and locked-in during games. It's helped me to train my brain to be more efficient and to be able to handle pressure better. I think it's a great tool for any athlete who wants to improve their performance."
He adds, “I’ve been doing neurofeedback for over a decade. It’s a great way for my brain to be trained at its absolute BEST.”
Neurofeedback is an innovative technology, and is quickly gaining popularity among athletes and other professionals who are looking for ways to improve their performance and mental well-being.

Neurofeedback can also be helpful for non-athletes who are looking to improve their cognitive function, memory, and emotional regulation. If you are interested to learn more about neurofeedback give us a call at 440-973-4223!
