Tip of the Day

Based on a study of 19 fibromyalgia (FM) patients, Mur et al (1999) concluded that electromyography-based (EMG) biofeedback training may contribute not only to a reduction of pain and muscle tension but also to improvement of quality of life. The latter results are consistent with a previous study of 18 patients by Sarnoch et al (1997), and Mur et al recommend EMG biofeedback as part of a multimodal pain therapy in FM patients.
