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.
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.
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.
