Abstract

There is substantial evidence to indicate that certain biofeedback procedures prove to be valuable treatments for certain psychophysiological disorders. Probably the most thoroughly researched area demonstrating the worth of biofeedback procedures is that of EMG feedback as a treatment for tension headaches. The specific problem examined is whether group EMG biofeedback can be used as a method of training subjects suffering from tension headaches to relax the muscles of the head and neck and reduce the incidence of pain. The purpose of the study was to test the hypothesis that group EMG biofeedback is as effective a treatment mode as individual procedures for people with tension headaches.
