Biofeedback and Biofeedback Practitioners

What is Biofeedback?

Biofeedback is therapy which uses monitoring devices to help people control and regulate their bodily functions including heart rate, blood pressure, temperature, and muscle tension.
Physical therapists use biofeedback to help their patients cope with pain, to increase relaxation, and develop healthier and more comfortable life. The monitoring device feeds back impulses to the patient in the form of lights and bleeps; these are displayed on a biofeedback monitor The therapy tries to find a way to reduce the number of lights and beeps being fed back. This relaxes the body’s electrical impulses and reduce the patient’s symptoms. Eventually with training, the patient can apply knowledge gained without the use of a machine

Clinical biofeedback techniques are used to treat an ever-lengthening list of conditions. These include:

  • Migraine headaches, tension headaches, and many other types of pain.
  • Disorders of the digestive system including constipation
  • High or low blood pressure.
  • Raynaud's disease (a circulatory disorder that causes uncomfortably cold hands).
  • Epilepsy
  • Abnormal heart rhythms
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Paralysis and other movement disorders.
  • Helping patients control their response to stress.
  • Panic disorder
  • Anxiety disorder
  • Addiction, including to alcohol
  • Incontinence
  • Sleep disorders
  • Attention-deficit disorder (ADD) and attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)

Typically a Biofeedback Therapist will discuss your symptoms and expectations, medical history, current medications and any other treatment you tried before biofeedback. They will discuss the results you hope to achieve and the results you can expect, then you will be introduced to the biofeedback equipment.
The therapist will connect you to the biofeedback equipment, attaching sensors to detect your body's responses. The type of sensor varies according to the type of process being measured. For example, for muscle biofeedback, you may have sensors attached to muscles on your head, neck and jaw. For temperature biofeedback, the sensors may be attached to your fingertips or toes. As you learn to control your body's functions, some of which are unconscious, the biofeedback equipment will signal your progress with a tone, flashing light or change in pattern on a video screen.
With this feedback from the sensors the therapist can guide you through the process of modifying various physiological responses to achieve your required changes.
Biofeedback therapy is a safe, non-invasive form of therapy, designed to give you control over certain processes that take place at a subconscious level of functioning.
