Biomechanical feedback was found to be significantly more effective than education in achieving sustained improvements in posture and musculoskeletal pain for computer users. The findings provide support for occupational therapists to include biomechanical biofeedback in treatment programs for musculoskeletal pain.

Computer users who undergo a biomechanical biofeedback (BBF) training program will demonstrate greater improvements in upper thoracic and cervical spinal angles than computer users who undergo a traditional posture retraining program.
Computer users who undergo a BBF training program will achieve greater improvement in neck, shoulder, and upper back pain scores than computer users who undergo a traditional posture retraining program.
