Fibromyalgia can be categorized as a central sensitization syndrome. Central sensitization is a pathological process which affects central nervous system. The process consists of a decrease in the pain threshold which leads to an altered perception of normally non-painful stimuli.
Neurofeedback is a neuropsychological training technique for our brain. It is a safe, passive and a non-invasive method that will help stabilize your central nervous system. To do this, Neurofeedback uses the automatic recording and analysis of brain electrical activity obtaining an electroencephalogram. This activity represents certain psychological processes that are generally handled outside our conscious control.
Neurofeedback treatment is based on the patient’s own learning. It uses the monitoring of your brain electrical signals to reinforce the most appropriate activity according to your needs. That is, the patient receives information from the activity of his own brain, which is taught and rewarded. Thus, brain gradually learns how to improve its functions.
