Biofeedback allows patients to understand how to control their body’s responses by using electrical sensors to provide information about the patient’s reactions. With this information, patients can reduce pain by making minor changes to how they react to various triggers. Biofeedback is a non-invasive tool that allows patients to practice new ways to control their body and improve their health.
Providers use a variety of biofeedback methods, depending on what is right for the patient’s pain profile and their goals. Biofeedback monitoring may include the following areas: breathing (respiratory feedback); heart rate (ECG); brain waves (EEG); sweat gland activity (EDG); body temperature; or muscle activity and contractions (EMG).
