Here at Compassion Behavioral Health, our team is always in search of the latest and greatest treatments for our patients. We are pleased to offer a new cutting-edge technique, known as neurofeedback with VR. Let’s take a closer look at what neurofeedback with VR entails and how it can benefit patients  with physical and mental health disorders.

The Power of Neurofeedback

Neurofeedback uses a computer-based program to assess a patient’s brainwave activity and provide immediate feedback. Through sounds or visual signals, it reorganizes or refrains these brain signals. 

Neurofeedback sessions teach patients to regulate their moods, improve their brain function, and relieve the symptoms of a variety of disorders. They can lead to positive, long-lasting changes in their thoughts, behaviors, and emotions.

How Neurofeedback with VR Works

While neurofeedback has been proven to deliver great results on its own, VR or virtual reality can enhance them even more while increasing the likelihood of success. It may also increase a patient’s motivation, interest, and sense of control. Here at Compassion Behavioral Health, we proudly pair neurofeedback with virtual reality. 

Our patients participate in neurofeedback via interactive 3D environments like games or videos. They may float up a river, hang out with animals in a jungle, and more while using neurofeedback to train their brain. This drug-free program will change the environment or screen to safely and effectively manipulate brain wavelength. 

Feedback is significantly improved when it’s in the form of a game or video than solely audio-visual content. Studies have also discovered that neurofeedback with VR has not only led to greater learning success, it has also been more effective for improving inattention and impulsivity than two dimensional neurofeedback sessions. 

Good Candidates for Neurofeedback with VR

This revolutionary treatment is particularly helpful for patients facing conditions like:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • ADHD
  • PTSD
  • Addiction recovery
  • Sleep disorders
  • Insomnia
  • Migraines
  • Concussions
  • Traumatic brain injury

Neurofeedback can allow patients to retrain specific areas of their brain and restore its optimal function.
