Excerpt from Correcting faulty posture ∞
Applied biofeedback is a group of therapeutic procedures that use electronic or electromechanical instruments to accurately measure, process, and feed back to patients information, with reinforcing properties, about their normal and abnormal neuromuscular and anatomic activity. This information usually takes the form of analog or binary auditory or visual feedback signals, or both.
Biofeedback helps patients develop greater awareness and voluntary control over their physiological process that are otherwise outside awareness or under less voluntary control. The patient first achieves awareness and control using the measuring device to manipulate the external signal and then uses internal psychological cues to do the same.
Examples of postural defects treated using biofeedback include adolescent idiopathic scoliosis, torticolis, and rounding of the back or slouching (functional thoracic kyphosis) due to poor posture.
