Biofeedback therapy trains the patient to control their physiological processes, including heart rate, blood pressure and muscle tension. While these processes are involuntary, it is possible to manipulate them. Biofeedback is a fantastic approach for treating headaches, blood pressure issues, chronic pain, and a wide range of other conditions, particularly those brought on by severe stress.
Biofeedback includes three common approaches, including thermal biofeedback, electromyography, and neurofeedback. These processes measure the patient's skin temperature, muscle tension and brain wave activity.
A biofeedback therapist will teach a patient some mental exercises and relaxation techniques to alleviate stress symptoms. During the session, the therapist may attach electrodes to the patient's skin to measure progress and to monitor the process.
Biofeedback is a significantly safer, non-invasive option for treating a wide range of conditions than drugs.
