Neurofeedback therapy is an effective treatment for anxiety.

 

People who experience increased anxiety and who suffer from anxiety disorders exhibit irregular brainwave activity that can be identified through brain mapping.  Since the process of neurofeedback naturally retrains the brainwaves to return to a balanced and normal state, patients struggling with anxiety can often find relief, relatively quickly (and sometimes permanently), through neurofeedback therapy.

Case studies show that neurofeedback has a 75% success rate for reducing symptom severity in patients.

 

Positive symptoms increase
Negative symptoms decrease

Neurofeedback Therapy is a safe alternative to anxiety-related prescription drugs.

As with many medical conditions treated by traditional medicine, the default approach to treating anxiety disorders is too often a long and side-effect-heavy prescription drug plan.  The overuse of anti-anxiety medication is helping to fuel the epidemic of overdose deaths related to prescription drug use in the United States.  The American Journal of Public Health reports that overdose deaths involving anti-anxiety drugs rose 429% between 1996 and 2013 (3.07 per 100,000 adults in 2013, up from 0.58 per 100,000 adults in 1996).

Neurofeedback, which is 100% drug and side-effect free, offers patients an opportunity to treat their anxiety without the concern of creating additional health risks.

1. Many anti-anxiety drugs can be habit-forming

2. Withdrawal can occur even without addiction

3. Serious side-effects can occur

4. Patients often require several different drugs before finding the one that works

5. Anxiety medications treat the symptoms, not the underlying causes

Additional Information

Is Neurofeedback Therapy is a clinically proven treatment for anxiety disorders?

Yes, Neurofeedback Therapy is a clinically proven treatment for anxiety disorders.

There are many research studies that show positive support for neurofeedback as a treatment for anxiety. Please
see a few examples below and don’t hesitate to contact MyBrainDr for additional information and studies.

Orbitofrontal cortex neurofeedback produces lasting changes in contamination anxiety and resting-state connectivity.

View Study

From the Abstract:

“NF altered network connectivity of brain regions involved in anxiety regulation: subjects exhibited reduced resting-state connectivity in limbic circuitry and increased connectivity in the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex. NF has been shown to alter brain connectivity in other contexts, but it has been unclear whether these changes persist; critically, we observed changes in connectivity several days after the completion of NF training, demonstrating that such training can lead to lasting modifications of brain functional architecture.”

“Training also increased subjects' control over contamination anxiety several days after the completion of NF training. Changes in resting-state connectivity in the target orbitofrontalregion correlated with these improvements in anxiety. Matched subjects undergoing a sham feedback control task showed neither a reorganization of resting-state functional connectivity nor an improvement in anxiety.”

“These data suggest that NF can enable enhanced control over anxiety by persistently reorganizing relevant brain networks and thus support the potential of NF as a clinically useful therapy.”

A review of EEG biofeedback treatment of anxiety disorders

View Study

From the Abstract:

Alpha, Theta and alpha-theta enhancements are effective treatments of anxiety disorders (Table 1). Alpha suppression is also effective, but less so (Table 2). Perceived success in carrying out the task plays an important role in clinical improvement. Research is needed to find out how much more effective they are than placebo, and which variables are important for efficacy. Variables needing study are: duration of treatment, type and severity of anxiety, number and type of EEG waveforms used, pretreatment with other kinds of feedback, position and number of electrodes, and presence of concomitant medication.
