Brain Training Services for Treatment of Tourette Syndrome

Tourette Syndrome or Tourette’s has traditionally been treated with a combination of medications and psychotherapy. The treatment outcome for Tourette’s has typically been limited both in terms of obtaining full symptomatic relief and absence of side effects. Alternative methods of treatment are available, including the use of braining training methods, such as biofeedback and neurofeedback. There have been a number of studies and anecdotal reports of improvement in symptoms of Tourette’s, using a variety of biofeedback and neurofeedback methods[i].

Crossroads Institute offers qEEG guided treatment (based on individuals brain activity), for a wide range of symptoms, including Tourette’s. Our treatment plans include a combination of biofeedback and neurofeedback treatment. Treatment of Tourette Syndrome using brain training methods may still be considered experimental. Because individual response to brain training services varies, the expected outcome of treatment for Tourette’s cannot be predicted; however, it is not expected that brain training services will provide complete symptom relief. The desired outcomes include a decrease in symptoms, including the frequency and intensity of tics, together with increased control of anxiety produced symptoms.
