Some of the potential benefits of Neurofeedback for OCD include:
- Improved brain communication and regulations
- Reduction in OCD symptoms
- Enhanced effectiveness of traditional therapy methods
- Improved quality of life overall
Neurofeedback may be an effective treatment for OCD. Pathways To Health can help you get started.
Sensors are placed on the scalp during neurofeedback therapy to measure brain activity. This information is then displayed on a screen in real-time, so the person can see when their brain waves are outside the normal range. The goal is to help the person learn to self-regulate their brain activity and return it to the normal range.
The average cost will depend on the number of sessions required and the specific type of neurofeedback therapy used. Some insurance plans may cover neurofeedback therapy, so it is essential to call for a consultation before getting started.
Neurofeedback therapy is a type of biofeedback that uses EEG (electroencephalography) to help people learn to control their brain activity. Neurofeedback has been used to treat conditions like ADHD, anxiety, depression, and insomnia. It is also being investigated as a potential treatment for Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia.
There is some evidence that neurofeedback can help improve cognitive function in people with Dementia, although more research is needed. A small study published in the journal Alzheimer’s & Dementia found that those who underwent neurofeedback training showed improvements in attention, memory, and executive function, compared to those who did not receive the training. Other studies have also shown promise, but more research is needed to confirm the efficacy of neurofeedback for this population.
Learn more about Neurofeedback:
Neurofeedback, also called Neurotherapy or Neurofeedback, is a type of biofeedback that uses real-time displays of brain activity—most commonly electroencephalography (EEG)—to teach self-regulation of brainwaves. Neurofeedback aims to help the brain function more efficiently and effectively.
Neurofeedback has been used to treat various conditions, including ADHD, anxiety, depression, migraines, sleep disorders, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Neurofeedback is also being studied as a potential treatment for Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia.
