Neurofeedback as Treatment for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is an anxiety disorder that often results from experiencing life-threatening or extremely traumatic experiences. It commonly occurs in war veterans, accident survivors and rape/incest victims. It can be severely debilitating and sometimes so incapacitating that individuals are unable to work or function socially. Flashbacks, problems sleeping, nightmares, panic attacks, unexplained sweating and tremors are common effects of PTSD. Hypnosis, progressive desensitization and biofeedback (including neurofeedback) have all been successfully used in treating PTSD.

With the exception of some forms of biofeedback/neurofeedback, all treatment methods involve talking about or visualizing or re-experiencing the traumatic incident repeatedly. This in itself can be traumatizing and is often resisted by the patient. Neurofeedback can effectively address the problems without the reliving and talking about the traumatic incident common to other therapies; it is therefore more readily accepted by the patient.
