In brief: Not established
The standard treatment for OCD is ssris and cbt, alone or preferably in combination.
There are claims that neurofeedback can assist or replace cbt, but no studies of which I am aware. It can help reduce anxiety, which is typically a prominent feature of ocd; but, that might or might not help with the OCD symptoms themselves.
