While experiencing post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), your brain becomes involuntarily stuck in a state of stress, being on guard, vigilant, and overstimulated.

PTSD IS YOUR BRAIN’S WAY OF TRYING TO REGAIN CONTROL

It can be the result of a single traumatic event, such as an accident or an assault, or multiple, long-term events, such as living in a warzone, chronic abuse or attending accident scenes. It can affect anyone at any age. For those experiencing PTSD, the effects can be widespread and varied, but common symptoms include frequent nightmares, intrusive images, difficulty managing strong emotions and physical reactions, detachment from others, poor sleep, and agitation. Your brain cannot shut off your fight, flight, or freeze response. It might feel like your reactions are out of your control, but they are not.

NEUROFEEDBACK AND PTSD

We know that PTSD is brain-based. It is the result of changes to the fear and vigilance areas of the brain, leading to a constant state of stress. While there are treatments that can help decrease some PTSD-related reactions, Neurofeedback allows us to observe the exact brainwaves and their locations that have been dysregulated by your trauma. The reaction caused by PTSD is automatic, not a choice, so Neurofeedback helps you regulate the brain activity that underlies your body and mind’s reactions from the trauma.

WHAT TO EXPECT WITH NEUROFEEDBACK

Neurofeedback targets dysregulated brainwaves, the source of your PTSD. Many traditional forms of treatment for PTSD encourage you to relax, but that is often impossible for anyone living with PTSD. Through Neurofeedback, your body and brain can find that calm state again. Individuals who have completed Neurofeedback for PTSD often report a reduction in nightmares, flashbacks, and feelings of fear and panic. They also feel calmer and less reactive to situations. If Neurofeedback is right for you, it may let you enjoy life experiences again.
