Biofeedback In The Treatment Of Blepharospasm: A Case Study.
Published 1981 · Psychology, Medicine
Although biofeedback has been of value in treating spastic paresis and torticollis, its effectiveness in other movement disorders is less clear. Blepharospasm, which has no definitive treatment, often has a strong psychogenic component. The authors report the use of electromyographic and temperature biofeedback in a women with blepharospasm who had responded poorly to psychotherapy. Her improvement during biofeedback treatment further elucidated psychogenic factors contributing to the disorder. At 3-months follow-up it seemed that the patient's secondary gain from the blepharospasm diminished the maximum treatment response she could have had to biofeedback.
