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)

Altogether, 23 older adults were randomized to the control group (n = 12) or the electromyographic biofeedback group (n = 11). After the 6-week intervention, toe flexor strength on the dominant side increased in both groups (P , 0.017). However, toe flexor strength on the nondominant side increased only in the electromyographic biofeedback group (P , 0.017), with a large effect size of 1.5. There were no changes in the two balance tests. Three of the control group and two of the electromyographic biofeedback group were lost to follow- up ...
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 ...

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.

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 ...

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 ...

Anorectal biofeedback 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 ...

His research interests are 1) designing and developing a real-time biofeedback technology to prevent and reduce falls by leveraging fall recovery performance in individuals with a high risk of falling, 2) designing and developing a cell phone based platform for home-based balance rehabilitation and fall prevention applications, 3) designing and developing a wearable sensory augmentation system via vibrotactile biofeedback for conveying motion instructions based on motion error between an expert and a trainee (patient) for potential clinical and home-based balance rehabilitation training applications, and 4) characterizing non-volitional human motor behavior (postural responses) to torso-based vibrotactile stimulation. ...
Objectives: Dynamic changes in psychophysiological arousal are directly expressed in the sympathetic innervation of the skin. This activity can be measured as tonic and phasic fluctuations in electrodermal activity [Galvanic Skin Response (GSR)/skin conductance]. Biofeedback training can enable an individual to gain voluntary control over this autonomic response and its central correlates. Theoretically, control of psychophysiological arousal may be harnessed as a therapy for epilepsy, to mitigate pre-ictal states. Evidence is accumulating for the clinical efficacy of GSR biofeedback training in the management of drug resistant epilepsy. In this review, we analyse current evidence of efficacy with GSR biofeedback and evaluate the methodology of each study. Method: We searched published literature pertaining to interventional studies of GSR biofeedback for epilepsy, through MEDLINE and Cochrane databases (1950-2018). Using percentage seizure reduction as an indicator of therapeutic efficacy induced by

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: ...

Methods Sixty patients with chronic low back pain were randomly assigned into a control and a treatment group and were oriented to take analgesics when necessary. 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. ...

Ankle joint quasi-stiffness is an aggregate measure of the interaction between triceps surae muscle stiffness and Achilles tendon stiffness. This interaction may be altered due to age-related changes in the structural properties and functional behavior of the Achilles tendon and triceps surae muscles. The authors hypothesized that, due to a more compliant of Achilles tendon, older adults would exhibit lower ankle joint quasi-stiffness than young adults during walking and during isolated contractions at matched triceps surae muscle activations. The authors also hypothesized that, independent of age, triceps surae muscle stiffness and ankle joint quasi-stiffness would increase with triceps surae muscle activation. The authors used conventional gait analysis in one experiment and, in another, electromyographic biofeedback and in vivo ultrasound imaging applied during isolated contractions. The authors found no difference in ankle joint quasi-stiffness between young and older adults during walking. ...
spinal cord injuries. Biofeedback has been used to successfully treat a number of disorders and their symptoms, including temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ), chronic pain, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), Raynauds syndrome, epilepsy, attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), migraine headaches, anxiety, depression, traumatic brain injury, and sleep disorders. Illnesses that may be triggered at least in part by stress are also targeted by biofeedback therapy. Certain types of headaches, high blood pressure, bruxism (teeth grinding), post-traumatic stress disorder, eating disorders, substance abuse, and some anxiety disorders may be treated successfully by teaching patients the ability to relax and release both muscle and mental tension. Biofeedback is often just one part of a comprehensive treatment program for some of these disorders. NASA has used biofeedback techniques to treat astronauts who suffer from severe space sickness, during which the autonomic nervous system is disrupted. ...

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 ...

Exaggerated reactions to stressful situations.. Adrenal fatigue is classed as a modern condition due our busy lifestyles and the higher amount of stress present for most of us. While this condition is recognised by the World Health Organisation as common, most medical professionals are reluctant to confirm the existence of adrenal fatigue and many will tell you it doesnt exist. This is where Kinesiology comes into play. We have a set of Test your Stress questions and body observation techniques which help us to identify your stress levels and if you are indeed suffering from adrenal fatigue.. As Kinesiology incorporates your physical, emotional, mental, hormonal, nutritional, biochemical and neurological systems we are able to treat adrenal fatigue as a whole body issue and ascertain where the stress started in the first place. As we use a monitoring muscle to test the biofeedback system within your body. It is your body that is indicating where the imbalance is located and what it would ...

Aim: To test the effectiveness of biofeedback techniques in reducing tension headaches.. Methodology: Laboratory experiment. Ps: 18 Americans who responded to a Colorado newspaper article. They were given medical examinations to ensure that the headaches were not caused by a medical concern.. Procedure: Electrodes were placed on Ps muscles and they were then monitored using an EMG feedback machine. There were 3 groups: Group A received biofeedback with relaxation training. Group B received relaxation training with pseudo-feedback. Group C were on a waiting list.. Ps kept a record of their headaches for 2 weeks. Groups A & B were given 16 sessions of relaxation training. Group A were told that the clicks of the biofeedback machine would reflect their muscle tension, whilst Group B were just told to focus on the varying clicks.. Results: At the end of the training, Group As muscle tension was significantly lower than group Bs. Group A also reported significantly less headaches than groups B & ...
