Complementary and Alternative Medicine: Fair, Balanced, and to the Point
  • About this web log

    This blog is intended as an objective and dispassionate source of information on the latest CAM research. Since my background is in pharmacy and allopathic medicine, I view all CAM as advancing through the development pipeline to eventually become integrated into mainstream medical practice. Some will succeed while others fail. But all are treated fairly here.

    Rating the value of biofeedback to treat diseases

    Alternative & Complementary Therapies has a review of biofeedback by Dr. Sala Horowitz. In it she includes a table that rates the value of biofeedback to treat selected conditions based on the available research.

    The article is a good review. I like her modification of the original table from the AAPB website, because her version is referenced.

    Here are the conditions where biofeedback is judged effective based on Dr. Horowitz’ article. Go to her article to see the rest of the list.

    • Attention-deficit disorder (ADHD)
    • Headache in adults
    • Hypertension
    • Temporomandibular disorders
    • Urinary incontinence
