Referral centers and specialized care. Based on a presentation by Ronald P. Lesser, MD. (1/425)

Appropriate diagnosis and treatment and the correct use of specialized services at epilepsy referral centers make it possible to control seizures relatively quickly in a large number of patients. Timeliness is extremely important, however, because delaying treatment decreases the likelihood of achieving complete remission from seizures. Epilepsy has a tremendous impact on quality of life. Concerns about concomitant illnesses, seizure-related injuries, and the psychosocial effects of seizures and anticonvulsants on patients are very real and should be addressed. An accurate diagnosis is the first step in effective seizure control, because not every patient with a seizure disorder has epilepsy. The second step is choosing an antiepileptic drug (AED) that is appropriate for the patient and using the correct dose and dosing schedule. When seizures remain uncontrolled or are poorly controlled despite medical therapy, the patient should be reevaluated to ascertain why the drug or drug combination is not working. The reason may be the wrong diagnosis, the wrong drug, or the wrong dose. If the seizures remain uncontrolled, the patient should be evaluated as a possible candidate for epilepsy surgery. If the patient is a good candidate, a presurgical work-up that includes monitoring and imaging studies should be performed, ideally at an epilepsy referral center. Quality care depends on access, communication, and knowledge, which involves patients who know how to achieve the best possible seizure control, doctors who are well informed and know what to do to ensure that their patients are receiving the best care, and mechanisms that permit consultation among everyone involved in caring for patients with epilepsy. Developing a system of quality, cost-effective care for the management of epilepsy also offers an excellent opportunity to apply such a system to the larger arena of medical care in general.  (+info)

Thermal biofeedback for claudication in diabetes: a literature review and case study. (2/425)

Temperature biofeedback (TBFB) is designed to alter cutaneous temperature in treated extremities by providing information corresponding to minor temperature fluctuations in the context of therapeutic structure and reinforcement. Toe TBFB may improve vascular flow and walking tolerance in patients with peripheral vascular disease. This case study documents improved walking in a diabetes patient with lower extremity complications, and suggests TBFB might increase lower extremity temperature and blood flow volume pulse in uncomplicated diabetes. Ankle-brachial index (ABI) and walking function were assessed in a 60-year-old woman with type 2 diabetes and intermittent claudication, before and after five sessions of TBFB applied to the ventral surface of the great toe. Toe temperature increased during feedback phases but not during baseline phases. Improvements were seen in ankle-brachial index, walking distance, walking speed, and stair climbing. This case indicates the need for extended and controlled study of TBFB for improved vascular and ambulatory function in diabetic claudication.  (+info)

A neurobehavioral treatment for unilateral complex partial seizure disorders: a comparison of right- and left-hemisphere patients. (3/425)

This study looked at the efficacy of a multi-disciplinary neurobehavioral approach for treating patients with complex partial seizure disorders. Patients with a seizure focus in either the left or right hemisphere were compared for overall effectiveness of this approach in achieving control of complex partial seizures. Patients in this study received short-term treatment based on a model of self-control developed by the Andrews/Reiter Epilepsy Research Program. This research selected all patients who met the lateralization criterion from among cases receiving short-term treatment between 1992 and 1996. Forty-four patients were identified, a group of 21 right-hemisphere subjects and a second group of 23 left-hemisphere subjects. These patients were treated in a short-term (5 consecutive days) treatment protocol and then released, with weekly phone contact for 6 months following treatment. They were then followed for an additional 19 months through the continued submission of their seizure logs and journals. Subjects in both groups kept seizure records throughout the study starting with a two-month baseline period. Other data collected allowed study of the interaction of emotional states with seizure occurrence. This project produced valuable and relevant information regarding neurobehavioral management interventions as an effective adjunctive or alternative treatment for obtaining seizure control in epilepsy patients. Overall, 79% of patients treated achieved seizure control. More than 64% identified a recognizable emotional state that triggered seizures. The emotional trigger was specific for either the right or left hemisphere.  (+info)

A guide for use and interpretation of kinesiologic electromyographic data. (4/425)

Physical therapists are among the most common users of electromyography as a method for understanding function and dysfunction of the neuromuscular system. However, there is no collection of references or a source that provides an overview or synthesis of information that serves to guide either the user or the consumer of electromyography and the data derived. Thus, the purpose of this article is to present a guide, accompanied by an inclusive reference list, for the use and interpretation of kinesiologic electromyographic data. The guide is divided into 4 major sections: collecting, managing, normalizing, and analyzing kinesiologic electromyographic data. In the first of these sections, the issues affecting data collection with both indwelling and surface electrodes are discussed. In the second section, data management through alternative forms of data processing is addressed. In the third section, various reasons and procedures for data normalization are discussed. The last section reviews qualitative descriptors once used as the only means of analyzing data, then focuses on more quantitative procedures that predominate today. The guide is intended as a tool for students, educators, clinicians, and beginning researchers who use and interpret kinesiologic electromyographic data. Modifications will likely be needed as alternative forms of collecting, managing, normalizing, and analyzing electromyographic data are proposed, used in various settings, and reported in the literature.  (+info)

Empirically supported treatments in pediatric psychology: nocturnal enuresis. (5/425)

OBJECTIVE: To review the medical and psychological literature concerning enuresis treatments in light of the Chambless criteria for empirically supported treatment. METHOD: A systematic search of the medical and psychological literature was performed using Medline and Psychlit. RESULTS: Several review studies and numerous well-controlled experiments have clearly documented the importance of the basic urine alarm alone as a necessary component in the treatment of enuresis or combined with the "Dry-Bed Training" intervention, establishing them as "effective treatments." Other multicomponent behavioral interventions that also include the urine alarm such as "Full Spectrum Home Training" have further improved the outcome for bed-wetters, but are classified as "probably efficacious" at this time because independent researchers have not replicated them. Less rigorously examined approaches that focus on improving compliance with treatment or include a "cognitive" focus (i.e., hypnosis) warrant further study. CONCLUSIONS: We recommend a "biobehavioral" perspective in the assessment and treatment of bed-wetting and suggest that combining the urine alarm with desmopressin offers the most promise and could well push the already high success rates of conditioning approaches closer to 100%. Much important work is yet to be completed that elucidates the mechanism of action for the success of the urine alarm and in educating society about its effectiveness so that its availability is improved.  (+info)

Empirically supported treatments in pediatric psychology: constipation and encopresis. (6/425)

OBJECTIVE: To review the empirical research examining behavioral and medical treatments for constipation and fecal incontinence. METHOD: Sixty-five articles investigating intervention efficacy were identified and reviewed. Twenty-three of the studies were excluded because they were case studies or were less well-controlled single-case designs. The intervention protocol for each study was identified and coded, with studies employing the same interventions matched and evaluated according to the Chambless criteria. RESULTS: From the literature base to date, no well-established interventions have emerged. However, four probably efficacious treatments and three promising interventions were identified. Two different medical interventions plus positive reinforcement fit the criteria for the probably efficacious category (one with fiber recommendation and one without). Three biofeedback plus medical interventions fit efficacy category criteria: one probably efficacious for constipation with abnormal defecation dynamics (full medical intervention plus biofeedback for paradoxical contraction), and two fit the promising intervention criteria for constipation and abnormal defecation dynamics (full medical intervention plus biofeedback for EAS strengthening, correction of paradoxical contraction and home practice; and biofeedback focused on correction of paradoxical contraction, medical intervention without fiber recommendation, and positive reinforcement). Two extensive behavioral interventions plus medical intervention also met efficacy criteria for constipation plus incontinence (medical intervention without laxative maintenance plus positive reinforcement, dietary education, goal setting, and skills building presented in a small-group format fits criteria for a promising intervention; and positive reinforcement and skills building focused on relaxation of the EAS during defecation, but without biofeedback, plus medical intervention meets the probably efficacious criteria). CONCLUSIONS: A discussion of the current weaknesses in this research area follows. Specific recommendations for future research are made including greater clarity in treatment protocol and sample descriptions, reporting cure rates rather than success rates, utilization of adherence checks, and investigation of potential differential outcomes for subgroups of children with constipation and incontinence.  (+info)

FES-biofeedback versus intensive pelvic floor muscle exercise for the prevention and treatment of genuine stress incontinence. (7/425)

We undertook this work to compare the treatment efficacies and the changes of quality of life after pelvic floor muscle (PFM) exercise and the functional electrical stimulation (FES)-biofeedback treatment, both of which are being widely used as conservative treatment methods for female urinary incontinence. We randomly selected 60 female incontinence patients who visited our department and divided them evenly into two groups. They were treated for a period of 6 weeks. The subjective changes in the severity of incontinence and discomfort in daily and social life were measured using a translated version of the questionnaire by Jackson. Objective changes of pelvic muscle contraction force were measured using a perineometer. Pre- and post-treatment maximal pelvic floor muscle contractile (PMC) pressure and changes in the severity of urinary incontinence and discomfort of the two groups showed statistically significant differences (p<0.001). In particular the FES-biofeedback group showed significantly increased maximal PMC pressure and a decreased severity of urinary incontinence and discomfort compared to the intensive PFM exercise group (p<0.001). In conclusion, FES-biofeedback proved more effective than simple PFM exercise.  (+info)

Gut focused behavioural treatment (biofeedback) for constipation and faecal incontinence in multiple sclerosis. (8/425)

OBJECTIVES: To determine whether gut focused behavioural treatment (biofeedback) is a useful therapy in multiple sclerosis patients referred for constipation, incontinence, or a combination of these symptoms. Most patients with multiple sclerosis complain of constipation, faecal incontinence, or a combination of the two. Patients rate these bowel symptoms as having a major impact on their life. Until now the management of these problems has been empirical, with a lack of evaluated therapeutic regimes. METHODS: Thirteen patients (eight women, median age 38 years, median duration of multiple sclerosis 10 years) complaining of constipation, with or without faecal incontinence underwent a median of four sessions of behavioural treatment. Anorectal physiological tests were performed before therapy. Impairment and disability were rated with the Kurtzke score and the Cambridge multiple sclerosis basic score (CAMBS). Patients were contacted a median of 14 months after completion of treatment. RESULTS: A beneficial effect was attributed to biofeedback in five patients. Mild to moderate disability, quiescent and non-relapsing disease, and absence of progression of multiple sclerosis over the year before biofeedback were predictive of symptom improvement. No physiological test predicted the response to therapy. CONCLUSION: Biofeedback retraining is an effective treatment in some patients with multiple sclerosis complaining of constipation or faecal incontinence. A response is more likely in patients with limited disability and a non-progressive disease course.  (+info)

PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to examine the long-term results of electromyographic biofeedback training in fecal incontinence.. METHODS: Thirty-seven patients (1 male) received a customised program of 2 to 11 (median, 3) biofeedback training sessions with an anal plug electromyometer. Nine patients had persistent incontinence after anal sphincter repair, a further 8 patients had postsurgical or partial obstetric damage of the sphincter but no sphincter repair, 9 patients had neurogenic sphincter damage, and 11 patients were classified as having idiopathic fecal incontinence. Duration of voluntary sphincter contraction was measured by anal electromyography (endurance score) before and after treatment. A postal questionnaire was used to investigate the following variables: 1) subjective rating on a four-grade Likert-scale of the overall result of the biofeedback training; 2) incontinence score (maximum score is 18, and 0 indicates no incontinence); and 3) rating of bowel dissatisfaction ...
Objectives. Psychophysiological factors in maintaining tinnitus-related distress have been emphasized in current tinnitus models. Hyperreactivity in the autonomous nervous system is supposed to hinder habituation processes and might contribute to maladjustment to tinnitus symptoms in the long run. Accordingly, biofeedback treatment targeting physiological activity ought to reduce tinnitus annoyance and facilitate habituation.. Subjects. One hundred and thirty patients completed a manual-based psychological treatment especially developed for chronic tinnitus sufferers. A subsample consisting of 67 participants were randomly assigned to a waiting list (3 months) and served as a control group. The programme consisted of 15 sessions of cognitive-behavioural therapy combined with a psychophysiological treatment using a biofeedback approach.. Method. Different muscle regions of the head and neck and skin conductance level were assessed with biofeedback equipment. Physiological treatment effects were ...

The aim of the present review was to critically evaluate the documented evidence regarding the efficacy of biofeedback for the two most prevalent headache conditions--migraine and tension-type headach
In some respect biofeedback is similar to Neurofeedback or eeg biofeedback. In biofeedback the technique is to look into the signals of the body. The signals are displayed on a screen where the patient and trainer both can see. These signals are measured from electrodes. The monitor gives you the feedback of the functioning of the body parts. Further the information gained can be used to train the patient how to control over the involuntary activities of the body. Biofeedback is a proven treatment therapy for many body functions but some areas where this has given successful results are chronic pain, high blood pressure, tension and urinary incontinence. There are basically three types of biofeedback. These are summed up as electromyography which is used to measure muscle tension. Another is thermal biofeedback which is used to measure skin temperature and last one is Neurofeedback which is used to measure brain wave activity.. Biofeedback is safe and a proven treatment method of human body ...
Historical and current research studying EMG biofeedback has shown this method to be an effective adjunct to occupational therapy intervention. Utilizing EMG biofeedback has been shown through research as effective in improving functional gains. The use of biofeedback allows an individual to visualize unseen physiological processes which are unique to each individual and provide better understanding of otherwise unseen functions (Laurenção, Battistella, Moran de Britto, Tsukimoto, & Mayizaki, 2008). An extensive literature review and students observations of clinical occupational therapy practice led the investigators to conclude that EMG biofeedback was a viable treatment method which has not been utilized to the full potential. The purpose of the scholarly project was to determine the effectiveness of EMG biofeedback through research and develop a resource guide for occupational therapists interested in implementing this method into treatment in a rehabilitative setting. The product developed
An automated EEG biofeedback system works just as well as a clinician-run system in helping reduce attention deficits in those with substance use disorders, according to an independent joint study from researchers at UCLA and UNC Wilmington.
Biofeedback is a technique intended to teach patients self-regulation of certain physiologic processes not normally considered to be under voluntary control. It is frequently used in conjunction with other therapies (i.e., relaxation, behavioral management, medication) to reduce the severity and/or frequency of headaches and as a treatment for a variety of diseases and disorders including anxiety, hypertension, movement disorders, incontinence, pain, and asthma. Professionals who use this technique assume that patients who achieve greater biofeedback control over the relevant physiological functions will be more successful in reducing their symptoms.. Biofeedback involves the feedback of a variety of types of information not normally available to the patient, followed by a concerted effort on the part of the patient to use this feedback to help alter the physiological process in some specific way. Biofeedback training is done either in individual or group sessions, alone or in combination with ...
An Overview Of Clinical Biofeedback. 1) Treatment Type: This is a specialized form of Behaviour Therapy (Behaviour Modification).. 2) Aim: To train patients to self-regulate, to some extent, physiological processes: heart rate, blood volume pulse, vasodilation/ vasoconstriction, muscle tension, brain waves (EEG), galvanic skin response (GSR), and respiratory patterns.. 3) Methods: Electronic, and other mechanical devices are used to monitor the patients physiological processes, such as subtle muscle tension.. 4) Patients are provided real-time feedback about the ongoing physiological processes (biofeedback).. 5) Classical and Operant Conditioning methods are used to train the patients to modify physiological responses, e.g. to induce relaxation by breathing comfortably at 10 breaths per minute over a 15 minute several times a week. This is complimented by home practice, with or without biofeedback devices.. 6) In general, the interventions help to achieve Autonomic Nervous System balance ...

New UK research shows that biofeedback, a technique using skin conductivity detection technology to train the mind to control physiological responses, can reduce seizure frequency.. Biofeedback is safe, easy to learn, and non-invasive and has been used previously as an EEG based technology with patients with epilepsy The type of biofeedback used in this study is a technology patented by Dr. Yoko Nagai of University of Sussex medical school called electrodermal (EDA) biofeedback. Patients attach small sensors to their two middle fingers. A small electrical current measures electrical conductance on the skin surface.. As patients view an animated computer programme their skin conductance drives the screen forward and alters the animation, a rewarding task similar to a video game.. The goal of this biofeedback approach, called autonomic cognitive rehabilitation therapy, is to generate new reactions of a physiological and psychological nature. With practice, patients start to anticipate seizure ...
Background and aims: EMG biofeedback as a relatively new tool in helping to relieve muscle dysfunction has been proposed. The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of a strengthening exercise program with electromyographical biofeedback on the alignment corrections of the patella and the knee pain in patients with patella-femoral ...
Various biofeedback devices are currently available, and effectiveness varies significantly depending on whether the biofeedback is used only during waking hours, or during sleep as well. Many authorities remain unconvinced of the efficacy of daytime-only biofeedback.[21] The efficacy of biofeedback delivered during sleep can depend strongly on daytime training, which is used to establish a Pavlovian response to the biofeedback signal that persists during sleep.. The first wearable nighttime bruxism biofeedback device (introduced in 2001), was originally sold under the trademark GrindAlert by BruxCare, and is now sold under the trademark SleepGuard by Holistic Technologies, which owns the patents on the technology. The SleepGuard biofeedback headband is a battery-powered device that sounds a tone against the forehead when it senses EMG (electromyographic) muscle activity in the temporalis muscles. The tone starts out very quiet and then gets louder, allowing people to stop clenching without ...

... is an instrument-based learning technique wherein an instrument such as a manometry probe is placed inside the body to provide visual or auditory information to the patient regarding their anorectal muscle function. When mechanical, anatomic, and disease- and diet-related causes of constipation have been ruled out, clinical suspicion should be raised to the possibility that PFD (pelvic floor dysfunction) or dyssynergia is causing or contributing to constipation. Based on the principle of operant conditioning, biofeedback helps patients modify bowel habits by restoring defecation, which normally entails propulsive forces coordinated with relaxation.. Biofeedback therapy is a process based on operant conditioning techniques and the governing principle is that any behavior - whether complex or simple - is reinforced. It can be performed either by placing a manometry probe with multiple micro-transducers and a balloon or a water perfused probe with multiple side holes into the ...

Chronic headache is a common symptom in children. Pharmacologic treatment has only a limited productivity and several known adverse reactions. Despite the frequency and chronicity of pediatric headache, validated treatment paradigms are currently inadequate.. Biofeedback is a medical treatment in which physiologic markers like heart rate, breathing rate, EMG, EEG, or electrodermal activity are measured and displayed back to the patient. The patient can then attempt to modulate physiology to achieve a certain feedback goal,such as slowing heart or breath rate, or relaxing certain muscles. Numerous psychophysiologic studies have been conducted that examine the effect of biofeedback alone on physiology as well as various clinical conditions. Clinical trials for chronic headaches have found that biofeedback was more effective in the treatment of headache when compared to pure drug therapy.. A number of recent distraction interventions for acute pain in children and adolescents have employed virtual ...
Randomized studies assessing the role of BVM and BVM-guided UF biofeedback in the prevention of IDH are limited and of low quality. One the largest studies assessing BVM without biofeedback, which was done by Reddan et al., randomized 443 participants to BVM or conventional HD over a 6-month period. Participants in the BVM group had UF rates adjusted at the discretion of the bedside dialysis nurse with a suggested UF algorithm. Due to the need for manual adjustment of the UF rate, it is unclear if the nurses promptly responded to changes in relative blood volume using the suggested algorithm. In fact, the participants randomized to BVM had increased hospitalization and mortality, which may have reflected a lack of adherence to the UF algorithm, or alternatively could have been related to more cautious fluid removal due to the feedback provided by the BVM device [33].. However, when BVM is combined with biofeedback there may be a beneficial reduction in IDH and blood pressure [31, 32, 41, 54]. In ...

Mind Hacks points to a good article on the current state of research into the effectiveness of biofeedback on ADHD. Its conclusion that biofeedback is a promising but unproven treatment is fair one. What is interesting about the article is that it talks about what makes a good research study and delves into the problems of having a control group. In medication trials the control group takes a placebo pill, an inert sugar pill, whilst the study group takes the real medication. Both pills look the same and none of the medical staff handing out the pills know who is getting what. This minimises the confounding variables in the experiment. In biofeedback studies, the problem is what to do you do with the control group. The treatment typically consists of 30 minutes a day using a computer and a biofeedback device. The control group needs to have a dummy treatment that is identical so that no one knows who is getting the real treatment but yet is guaranteed to have no effect. By its nature, ...

Auditory display is a relatively young field that has nonetheless been applied to many different types of research, including data exploration, musical composition and performance and for studying medical conditions such as epilepsy. Sonification, a type of auditory display which can generally be defined as the transformation of data into sound, has been applied to biofeedback systems, computer assisted collaborative work, and astronomy, to name just a few. Despite the considerable amount of recent work involving sonification and biofeedback, it is not clear what types of sonification strategies or mappings are most effective for aiding the perception of brain and body states. This master thesis aims to help answer this question by developing and testing a sonification engine capable of a range of sonification techniques, from audification-the simplest, most direct technique-to more arbitrary or musical mappings. In all, three techniques are presented: a relatively simple and direct approach, a ...
Reviews the book, Biofeedback, Behavior Therapy and Hypnosis: Potentiating the Verbal Control of Behavior for Clinicians edited by Ian Wickramasekera (see record 1977-01545-000). In this book, Wickramasekera has assembled 48 papers dealing largely with the use of biofeedback, behavioral, and hypnotic techniques in the clinical practice of psychotherapy. The emphasis in the first two sections is on practical applications of biofeedback and behavior therapy. In the section on biofeedback, a great deal of attention is devoted to various methods for treating pain and anxiety. This is not simply another book of readings, however, for Wickramasekera employs the individual articles to communicate some important points about the successful use of biofeedback, behavioral, and hypnotic techniques in the clinic. The book is filled with "how-to-do-it" advice, and well-chosen examples illustrate the major points. For this reason, the book will serve well as a reader for the practicing clinician or student ...

Health Complications of High Blood Pressure. Hypertension leading to damage of body organs shortens number of years a person is expected to live. It increases the risk of heart attacks, heart diseases, strokes and kidney failure. Untreated, hypertension can also cause blindness, irregularities of the heartbeat and heart failure. The risk of developing these complications is higher in the presence of other cardiovascular risk factors such as diabetes. High blood pressure during middle age may also raise the risk of cognitive decline later in life.. HRV Biofeedback as an alternative solution to High Blood Pressure Although using medication and changing lifestyle,manages hypertension, recent research has also discovered a new way of managing the condition. This is called Heart Rate Variability (HRV) Biofeedback Training. HRV is the difference in the time interval between heart beats.

The A-Team has psychologists on staff, and they seem to want everyone to practice biofeedback. I had my first session last Friday, and it didnt go so well. Number one, the office manager had spent a half hour of my time demonstrating the headicing machine which I told her would not work for me (too noisy, too big, and it seemed to be on the leaky side although it cooled and heated the recirculating water really well plus it had to be strapped to my head which bothers the supraorbital nerve pain I have), then some kind of migraine cap. I DONT HAVE MIGRAINES ANYMORE I wanted to shout...I tried to explain that when I ice my head I use four (yes 4!) ice caps with ice and water in them to cover the area needed. She did suggest I create some ice caps by sewing some covers and filling them with unpopped popcorn and keeping them in the freezer which was a useful and thoughtful suggestion (but I think she could tell I was a hard sell on the other equipment ...

The number of people living with various grades of disability is now in excess of 1 billion. A significant portion of this population is dependent on caregivers and unable to access or afford therapy. This emerging healthcare challenge coincides with new knowledge about the self-learning, self-organizing, neuroplastic nature of the brain, offering hope to those trying to regain independence after disability. As conditions such as stroke and dementia begin to affect more and more people in the younger age groups, there is an urgent, global need for a connected rehabilitation solution that leverages the advantages of neuroplasticity to restore cognitive and physical function. This chapter explains a novel approach using a Synergistic Physio-Neuro learning model (SynPhNe learning model), which mimics how babies learn. This learning model has been embedded into a wearable, biofeedback device that can be used to restore function after stroke, injury, the degenerative effects of aging or a childhood learning

It is never that easy, is it? Never as easy as: go for assessment, start treatment. Sigh.. I was thinking: this week we begin the new brain biofeedback training for reading.. But nope.. Once the ADD Centre get full cap parameters - the EEG readings from 19 points on your head - they like to pinpoint precisely the numbers they need from the exact locations they want to train.. Apparently, I produce too much theta at C3 and FP1-F3.. And so this week my trainer put an electrode over FP1-F3 and assessed my brainwaves there for three minutes; then did the same at C3.. For the rest of the session, she kept the electrode at C3 while we did HRV training, reading, and SMIRB (stop my irritating ruminations book writing). This week, like last, she had me deep breathe to the HRV screen first with eyes closed then with eyes open to relax me, for my heart was pounding away (it would not be a normal week for me sans some new stressor). My heart may go fast, but it rarely pounds so that I can feel it. I was not ...
What is biofeedback?Biofeedback is a method that uses the mind to control a body function that the body normally regulates automatically, such as skin temperature, muscle tension, heart rate, or blood pressure. When you are first learning biofeedback, you will have sensors attached to your body and to a monitoring device. This provides instant feedback on a body function (for example, your skin ..

The above is a representation of the electrical activity of the brain by frequency after 20 minutes of use of Alpha-Stim CES at 0.5 Hz. The EEG of 30 research volunteers was averaged and analyzed by computer to generate the average of brain changes in brain activity after 20 minutes of Alpha-Stim. This is a difference brain map, where a decrease in activity after the use of Alpha-Stim is shown in shades of blue and an increase in activity is seen in shades of yellow and red (green indicates no change). The above map shows that there is a decrease in delta, the 1, 2, and 3 Hz frequencies associated in waking individuals with impaired cognitive functioning. Significant increases are seen in alpha frequencies with peak activity at 9 Hz. Increases were also seen in activity at 12, 13 and 14 Hz, with 13 and 14 Hz activity centering on C3. It is common practice in EEG biofeedback (Neurotherapy) to train increases of 13-15 Hz activity (SMR) at C3 to create increased relaxation and treat epilepsy, ADHD, ...

Andrea changed all the circles on the screen from green to black. While she was doing that, I answered a few questions on a paper questionnaire about my memory and concentration. Then I moved myself and some wires, and most of the black went green again. Poor Andrea (and my scalp), she had to work on it again. After a while, she decided it was just random flickering from black to green to black, and we began the test.. First, I sat with my eyes closed for, I think, five minutes while Dr. Michael Thompson recorded my brainwaves and ECG on the laptop. ECG popped up first, then EEG. Once the waves were showing fully on the screen, I had to reduce muscle tension by actively relaxing my jaw and shoulders. It is very hard to sit still with eyes closed, keeping ones jaw totally relaxed.. When eyes closed EEG/ECG test was done, we talked about memory. The staff at the ADD Centre will do this sometimes between tests or biofeedback sessions as a way to relax you or give you a break, or sometimes to work ...

A clinical hands-on lesson is highly effective and methodical. It incorporates several techniques in specific sequence in order to evoke long-term change at the level of the central nervous system. These techniques include: kinetic mirroring, means-whereby, pandiculation, quick release and lock-in. A further discussion of these techniques follows:. Means whereby, a technique created by F.M. Alexander, introduces basic awareness of movement. It is a passive technique, which aids us in assessing the range of motion of a specific set of muscles and where there might be muscular dysfunction. The practitioner gently and slowly moves the targeted muscles through their range of motion in order to locate areas of SMA. SMA will show up as jerky, shaky or tight muscles that cannot relax. This technique, a form of biofeedback, allows the client to begin noticing movement, or lack thereof, in their own muscles.. Kinetic mirroring, borrowed from Moshe Feldenkrais, is based upon the relationship between alpha ...

Biofeedback has evolved from a fascination in the 1960s and 70s to a mainstream methodology today for treating certain medical conditions and improving human performance. This evolution has been driven by years of scientific research demonstrating that the mind and body are connected, and that people can be taught to harness the power of this connection to change physical activity and improve health and function. Public interest in biofeedback is growing, and with it the need for a clear answer to the question, "what is biofeedback?" The leading professional organizations representing the field have answered with the following standard definition.. "Biofeedback is a process that enables an individual to learn how to change physiological activity for the purposes of improving health and performance. Precise instruments measure physiological activity such as brainwaves, heart function, breathing, muscle activity, and skin temperature. These instruments rapidly and accurately feed back ...
Donald Moss, Ph.D. A chapter included in: D. Moss (Ed.). (1998). Humanistic and Transpersonal Psychology: A Historical and Biographical Sourcebook. Westport, CT: Greenwood Publishing. Reprinted with permission of Greenwood Publishing Group. This book is available from AAPBs Bookstore or from Greenwood at http://info.greenwood,com/books/o313291/0313291586.html Abstract : Chapter Ten summarizes the Biofeedback movement, which serves as the arena where high tech meets the higher states of consciousness. The concept of biofeedback was introduced at a conference in Santa Monica in 1969. The image of electronic equipment guiding human beings to a greater awareness and control over their own physiology and consciousness appealed to both white coated experimental scientists and the white robed gurus of the higher consciousness movement. Biofeedback encourages the humanistic dream that the human being can become creator of his or her own ever perfecting health and nature. The Birth of Biofeedback: ...

The treatment group participated in a biofeedback program (8 weeks) that included: global relaxation trainning and abdominal strength exercises with and without biofeedback and cognitive reestructuring techniques. The outcome measures used were Visual Analogue Scale (VAS), Roland-Morris questionnaire, Schöber Index, Beck Depression Inventory (BDI) and State-trait Anxiety Inventory (STAI) in the beginning and at the end of the observation period. Contraction (EMG) levels of abdominals and paraspinal muscles were registered in the beginning, after 1 month and at the end of the observation period. ...

Behavioral treatment of urinary incontinence was given to 39 elderly outpatients; 19 had stress incontinence, 12 detrusor motor instability, and 8 urge incontinence without instability. Biofeedback involving the bladder and sphincter was used to teach selective control of sphincter muscles or voluntary inhibition of detrusor contractions. Traditional behavioral methods used included habit training to gradually increase the voiding interval and relaxation training to cope with the urge to void. After an average 3.5 training sessions, patients with stress incontinence reduced the frequency of incontinent episodes an average of 82% (range, 55% to 100%). Patients with detrusor motor instability showed an average 85% improvement (range, 39% to 100%), and patients with urge incontinence reduced incontinence an average of 94% (range, 83% to 100%). Furthermore, 13 of the patients achieved total continence, and 19 had fewer than one accident per week after treatment. ...

I have been undergoing therapy with the LENYO CellCom biofeedback BRT device for pain resulting from fibromyalgia, an injury to both my neck and back in a car accident, and a facial motor tick. I had the tick for about two years along with the fibromyalgia, and I had the back and neck pain for seven years. In order to function each day I took pain medication and a sleep aid.. After two sessions with the LENYO CellCom, my facial tick decreased by 90% and continued to lessen with each session until it was completely gone. Friends noticed immediately that the tick had greatly decreased. Additionally, after only sessions, I realized I was not in need of a daily sleep aid and I was able to reduce my daily pain medications by 50%.. I felt no pain and no discomfort during the BRT sessions -it was like taking a nap. Now I sleep well, and I am able to participate in activities I was unable to enjoy for several years. The tick is now completely gone and I am no longer embarrassed to go out with friends ...

Childhood migraine is a prevalent disorder seen in pediatric practice. Preliminary uncontrolled reports evaluating skin temperature biofeedback with autogenic training have suggested that it may be a useful intervention for childhood migraine. The present study used a controlled group outcome design to further evaluate the effectiveness of skin temperature feedback with autogenic training and home practice. Subjects were 28 children, ages 7 to 16, 14 males and 14 females. After receiving a physicians diagnosis of migraine a second diagnosis of migraine was made by the experimenter. Children were matched by baseline headache intensity, sex and age and then randomly assigned to either a waiting-list control or treatment group. Six dependent measures of headache activity were obtained from weekly headache records that the child and parents kept during baseline, treatment and follow-up. Assessment of ability to increase skin temperature without feedback was made at pre- and post-treatment sessions. The
Training the muscles of the pelvic floor can be an effective way to minimize or prevent urine leakage. They can be strengthened, and training costs nothing and has no side effects, so you may wish to try this before starting other treatment methods.. Young female athletes, moms-to-be and even senior women can all experience weak pelvic muscles. The pelvic floor muscles help you hold your urine, so as the muscles weaken, you may leak urine due to certain actions and everyday lifestyle factors.. If you experience stress incontinence, there may be a chance that it can be helped with pelvic floor exercises. Pelvic floor exercises are also useful to prevent incontinence, particularly for women who have had children. By practicing at least three times a day, exercises can help you strengthen your pelvic floor muscles and give you more control when you need it.. Learn more about how to strengthen your pelvic muscles by watching this information video from Ways & How: How To Do Kegel Exercises For ...

Urinary incontinence (UI) is a major complication among patients after radical prostatectomy (RP). Although previous research supports the efficacy of pelvic floor exercises for male UI, there are both positive and no significant effects. The purpose of this study was to examine the effect of pelvic floor exercises on UI after RP. This was a quasi-experimental, randomized, mixed-method study design. All participants were older than 45 years and had undergone an RP. Outcome measurements included a 1-h pad test, personal demographics, and disease-related data. After catheter removal, participants were distributed into either an exercise group (n = 39) or a non-exercise group (n = 28). Patients in the exercise group took part in a pelvic floor exercise during their regular daily activities. The non-exercise group did not perform the prescribed exercise. We examined urinary function at 1, 3 and 6 months after catheter removal. Following a mixed-model anova test for differences, the results of the ...

Most of my female patients with urinary incontinence (UI), overactive bladder and pelvic organ prolapse (POP) tell me they have been doing "Kegels for years and they just dont work." But it is a fact that women find it difficult to perform a pelvic floor muscle contraction as most do not have an awareness of the pelvic floor muscle. That is why in my practice, I have found biofeedback-assisted pelvic floor muscle training to be an important part of the treatment (Newman & Wein 2013, Newman 2014). Other clinicians agree ...
