General Guideline Principles for Biofeedback
for workers compensation patients
The New York State workers compensation board has developed these guidelines to help physicians, podiatrists, and other healthcare professionals provide appropriate treatment for Biofeedback.
These Workers Compensation Board guidelines are intended to assist healthcare professionals in making decisions regarding the appropriate level of care for their patients with ankle and foot disorders.
The guidelines are not a substitute for clinical judgement or professional experience. The ultimate decision regarding care must be made by the patient in consultation with his or her healthcare provider.
Biofeedback of Neck Injury
Biofeedback is recommended for a small group of non-acute neck pain patients as a part of an interdisciplinary strategy.
- Effect-producing period: three to four sessions.
- Every one to two times a week.
- Maximum Time: five to six sessions.
- 10 – 12 sessions are the maximum duration. To allow meaningful functional improvements, treatment over 12 sessions must be mentioned in terms of need, expectation, and capacity.
Biofeedback is not recommended for acute neck pain or acute injury.
