Biofeedback can be a successful tool for muscle rehab to improve muscle functioning. Muscle (EMG) feedback can also give insight in posture and gait in general. Biofeedback enables a therapist to visualize multiple physiological parameters and using it as feedback for their clients. By using these physiological signals as feedback, a client gains insight in their physiology, starts to understand the relationship between body and mind and in the process creates techniques and eventually changes behavior to restore physiological balance and improve health. Biofeedback can be a useful addition to therapies for conditions like chronic pain, headaches or migraines.
Neurofeedback enables occupational therapists to measure and train brain performance. Neurofeedback training helps a client to gain insights in EEG, thereby providing a tool to improve attention and focus. By giving insights in the client's own brain waves they learn to understand their complaints better. Neurofeedback can be beneficial for attention-related disorders like ADHD.
