Help for my Headaches

Published September 29, 2010 by Charlotte

So if I haven’t told you before… I really like my Therapist. We both have agreed it’s like I was lead to his office. After being diagnosed with PTSD & ADD we discussed different options from the normal “conversation” type therapy. One is Bio feedback & the other Neuro feedback.

Biofeedback is the process of becoming aware of various physiological functions using instruments that provide information on the activity of those same systems, with a goal of being able to manipulate them at will.[1][2] Processes that can be controlled include brainwaves, muscle tone, skin conductance, heart rate and pain perception.[3]

Biofeedback may be used to improve health or performance, and the physiological changes often occur in conjunction with changes to thoughts, emotions, and behaviour. Eventually, these changes can be maintained without the use of extra equipment.[2]

Biofeedback has been found to be effective for the treatment of headaches and migraines.

So tonight I had Bio feedback. Here’s to no headache tomorrow!

Next week I’m having Neuro-feedback.
