What does biofeedback do for arthritis?

Rheumatoid Arthritis is a painful condition believed to be exacerbated by stress. Biofeedback and relaxation strategies have demonstrated benefit in alleviating both pain and stress-related symptoms

Although biofeedback has not been shown to alter temperature of the affected limb consistently, it has been shown to have positive effects on pain, tension and sleep patterns. A separate study favored biofeedback over physiotherapy when it came to measuring physical and functional outcome.
