Overview

There have been various studies that have found the effectiveness of neurofeedback for chronic pain, which are immense and long-lasting. In individuals with chronic low back pain, 20 sessions of neurofeedback was found to significantly reduce their pain, the results of which were lasting even after 6 and 12 months of follow up. When individuals with fibromyalgia were given 20 sessions of neurofeedback training, there were significant improvements in various parameters such as pain, impaired quality of life and psychological symptoms. When a research study sought out to compare the effectiveness of neurofeedback training and medications for those with migraine headaches, neurofeedback helped about 54% of patients experience migraine headaches’ complete remission, whereas an additional 39% of patients experienced a decrease in their migraine headaches of over 50%. On the other hand, for those who opted medications only, for about 68% of patients there was no decrease in frequency of migraine headaches, while only 8% of patients had achieved a reduction of over 50%.

How effective is Neurofeedback for Chronic Pain?

Neurofeedback is effective in reducing symptoms of chronic and acute pain, enhancing the person’s resilience to pain, as well as improving other symptoms associated with pain such as sleep, fatigue, anxiety, and depression.

How does Neurofeedback help with Chronic Pain?

Neurofeedback can directly have an impact on a person’s processing of pain. It allows the person to learn to self-regulate their brain functions which are involved in pain memory, pain processing, or pain perception. This helps the person in reducing or even eliminating pain along with other accompanying co-morbid symptoms such as anxiety or depression.

Is Neurofeedback safe for Chronic Pain?

Neurofeedback is generally considered a safe form of treatment intervention which does not have any significant side effects. Even if side effects do occur, they are mild in intensity and typically get resolved within 24-48 hours after the intervention.
