Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a problem that occurs when a person experiences life-threatening events such as terrorist incidents, natural disasters, serious accidents, military combat or sexual assault in adult or childhood.
Most survivors of post-traumatic stress disorder return to normal conditions in a given time. However, some patients also experience stress reactions which continue for a longer period of time. Patients who suffer from have PTSD often remember their experiences through flashbacks or nightmares. They may have difficulties in many aspects of life which can include; feeling detached as these symptoms can be severe enough and might last long enough to affect the person’s daily life significantly.
Neurofeedback may be an effective treatment for individuals with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), according to a new study published in the journal NeuroImage: Clinical.
After treatment, 61.1 per cent of participants no longer met the definition for PTSD. This remission rate is comparable to gold standard therapies like trauma-focused psychotherapy. (A.Nicholson 2020)
So we can consider Neurofeedback to be an affordable and evidence based therapy for PTSD patients.
