Biofeedback at The Brain Clinic
What is biofeedback?
Biofeedback is a non-pharmaceutical method of treatment in which patients are trained to control their own physiology in order to improve physical and psychological health.
Example- a patient who is trained to control his/her temperature can help manage the symptoms of headaches as well as enhance general relaxation.
How does Biofeedback Work?
Biofeedback targets the underlying dysregulation in brain activity that can exacerbate, and sometimes cause, clinical symptoms. This influence may also encourage neurophysiological resilience with the induction of brain flexibility, relaxation, and a steadier central nervous system. For example, if one’s neuroanatomy and physiological health, is over-stimulated, or under-aroused, mental illnesses with various symptoms may manifest behaviorally, psychologically, emotionally, and/or physically. Disorders such as anxiety and depression may have a base in neurophysiology which consequently can be targeted for training. A brain with greater flexibility has the capacity to more healthily adapt to challenging life situations.
Biofeedback has been shown to be effective in treating the following conditions:
