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
