In recent years, biofeedback has become commonly used in the management of pain in pain clinics. The use of biofeedback now appears to be generally well accepted. However, in past studies with Dr. Ronald Melzack at McGill University, surprisingly, we found that Workman's Compensation patients with back pain responded better to biofeedback than MS patients with back pain did. Biofeedback, however, may be helpful in some MS patients. More sophisticated approaches to biofeedback have recently evolved from spinal cord injury centers and other medical clinics.
