Biofeedback treatment of gastrointestinal disorders

, : Biofeedback treatment of gastrointestinal disorders. Biofeedback & Self-Regulation 17(1): 59-76

Biofeedback has had a greater impact on gastroenterology than on any other medical subspeciality. Biofeedback is the treatment of choice for many of the most common types of fecal incontinence, and preliminary studies suggest that it is likely to become a preferred method for treating patients with constipation related to inability to relax the striated pelvic floor muscles during defecation. This dysfunction may account of up to 50% of patients with chronic constipation. Thermal biofeedback forms part of a multicomponent behavioral treatment for irritable bowel syndrome that is reported to be effective, and other promising applications of biofeedback for gastrointestinal disorders are under investigation.
