What is Neurotherapy and Biofeedback?

Biofeedback is a form of neurotherapy that is used to help patients train their brains. Our bodies have a number of involuntary functions, such as lifting our hand to wave to someone, lifting our knee when walking upstairs, or our heart racing when we get nervous. Biofeedback can be used to help patients control these involuntary actions. With biofeedback therapy, a person can learn how to prevent or treat certain involuntary actions. The idea is that with this therapy, a person can learn how to understand what's going on inside their body so they can gain more control of it. Common conditions treated with biofeedback include:

  • Chronic pain
  • Headaches
  • Anxiety
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Asthma

At BHFS Medical and Behavioral Services, we offer biofeedback therapy to men and women at our Lewisville, TX office. For more information, contact clinical director Dr. Dwane Allen today.

What Can I Expect from Biofeedback Therapy?

During your first biofeedback session at BHFS Medical and Behavioral Services, we will begin by getting to know you and your needs. From there, we can create a treatment plan to help you achieve your goals. We will attach electrodes to your skin, which will send signals to our monitor. The monitor will display sounds, flashes of light, or an image that will represent your heart rate, breathing rate, blood pressure, temperature, sweating, muscle activity, and more. When you're experiencing stress, these will change (heart rate will speed up, muscles tighten, etc.) and will be indicated on the screen. The idea is this feedback will give you the knowledge you need to try to stop these involuntary behaviors. Our biofeedback therapist will help you practice different relaxation exercises that will also help you control these functions. Some of these exercises include:

  • Deep breathing
  • Meditation
  • Guided imagery
  • Alternating tightening and relaxing muscle groups

Take Control of Pain and Stress

If you suffer from anxiety, headaches, high blood pressure, or something else, biofeedback therapy at BHFS Medical and Behavioral Services may be a great solution for you to ease your discomfort. Biofeedback, a form of neurotherapy, helps patients recognize and control the involuntary functions of their bodies. With this knowledge, they then have the power to use relaxation or other methods to control these functions.
