Biofeedback is a noninvasive, patient centered treatment that allows patients to learn to control physiological response to pain. Evidence suggests that underlying autonomic dysregulation can trigger muscle tension through activation of muscle spindles, resulting in chronic pain. The use of biofeedback in conjunction with myofascial release can be an effective approach for patients who experience chronic pain.
