Overview

Biofeedback training can be useful for various conditions including tension headaches, chronic pain, high blood pressure, urinary continence, migraine headache, anxiety, addiction, and depression. It comes with a low risk of unwanted side effects as it does not involve drugs. Moreover, it is suitable for those who cannot use medications such as pregnant women, as well as those who wish to avoid medications.
During the procedure, electrodes are attached to the patient’s body through which information regarding the patient’s physiological states is fed to a monitoring device. The therapist, based on the information, has the patient engage in certain relaxation techniques and mental activities that help the patient regulate these states. Eventually, the patient learns to do so without the need of the monitoring device.
Biofeedback can be a useful treatment alternative for those for whom other conventional methods have been ineffective. It can also be used as a complementary form of treatment in addition to medications, therapy, and relaxation strategies. Biofeedback also helps empower the individual with tools and confidence to be able to deal with any stressful situation and emotionally regulate themselves.
