Biofeedback is a training tool that helps patients control their symptoms associated with muscle tension or weakness. The following are conditions where biofeedback may be used:

 

MUSCLE TENSION

  • Muscle Tension Headaches
  • Migraine Headaches
  • TMJ Pain
  • Whiplash
  • Anxiety Reactions
  • Thoracic Outlet Syndrome
  • Overuse Conditions
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Insomnia
  • Raynaud’s Syndrome
  • RSD (Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy)
  • Pelvic Pain

 

MUSCLE WEAKNESS

  • Postural Pain
  • Post-surgical Recovery
  • Pelvic Floor Weakness
  • Incontinence

 

Biofeedback patients are trained to more effectively either use their muscles or quiet them, depending on the particular condition. Electrodes are applied to the skin to detect muscle tension, which is displayed on a computer screen. Patients receive feedback on the tension in their muscles and learn how to control their body’s response. They can also learn about their patterns of breathing and how they impact posture and pain. Biofeedback is used as a teaching tool and can increase the effectiveness of a self-management program for pain.
