Biofeedback is a technique you can use to learn to control some of your body’s functions, such as your heart rate. During biofeedback, you’re connected to electrical sensors that help you receive information about your body.
This feedback helps you make subtle changes in your body, such as relaxing certain muscles, to achieve the results you want, such as reducing pain. In essence, biofeedback gives you the ability to practice new ways to control your body, often to improve a health condition or physical performance.
Biofeedback is indicated for many cases:
Chronic pain, Urinary Incontinence, Hypertension, Headaches, Migraine,
enhancing knee extension after an ACL reconstruction, Fibromyalgia, Neck pain, Post traumatic stress syndrome, Balance disorders, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.
Vaginal cones are weighted devices consisting of a set of 5 weights, varying from 20 gm to 70 gm designed to increase the strength of the pelvic floor muscles. The intravaginal weight provides the sensory feedback for the desired pelvic muscle contraction. The sustained contraction required to retain the weight within the vagina increases the strength of the pelvic floor muscles.
