The Effect of Biofeedback as a Psychological Intervention in Multiple Sclerosis: A Randomized Controlled Study

Alison M. Mackay, Robert Buckingham, Raymond S. Schwartz, Suzanne Hodgkinson, Roy G. Beran, Dennis J. Cordato 

In this randomized controlled trial, biofeedback was examined for its ability to improve emotional well-being in patients with relapsing-remitting MS. Two groups of patients received treatment consisting of relaxation, mindfulness, social support, and education, and one of the groups also received biofeedback designed to regulate the physiological stress response. Both groups showed reductions in anxiety, fatigue, and stress; patients in the biofeedback group also demonstrated significant reductions compared to the control group in physiological measurements of breathing rate and muscle tension.
