GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) Being a good athlete is as much about brain power as it is about physical ability. NBA All-Star Chris Kaman was diagnosed with ADHD at the age of two and was put on medication. He took it until the age of 18. Once he finished college and moved on to the NBA, he had some concentration issues. He reconnected with Dr. Royer at Neurocore, who he met at a young age, and they took a look at his brain. Dr. Royer determined Kaman did not have ADHD and the medication he had been taking actually had a negative effect on his condition.
Neurocore focuses on the brain. They use a series of assessments to get to know what’s going on in the brain and get the diagnosis right to start an effective treatment.
- EEG: Electroencephalogram – measuring the brain waves.

- CBCL: Child Behavior Checklist – behavioral, emotional, and social health concerns.
