Treating Obsessive Compulsive Disorder with Neurofeedback
Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is an anxiety disorder that compels individuals to repeat behaviors in a fruitless effort to rid themselves of unwanted thoughts. It’s a condition that is most often treated with medication. Dr. Fibus strongly advises that patients consult their prescribing physician before changing or discontinuing any medication.
Since OCD manifests in each person in a unique way, there is no single protocol for neurofeedback treatment; the treatment must be tailored to the person.
The evidence demonstrates that individuals with OCD can benefit from the improved regulation and control that neurofeedback training offers – gradually replacing the brain’s over-aroused state with a welcome calm.
