Abstract

Date Presented 4/21/2018

This randomized, crossover pilot study explored the acute effects of mindfulness and visual biofeedback on pain, stress, and anxiety in hand therapy. Reduction in anxiety and trending reduction in stress within the experimental conditions indicate that a future, fully powered trial is warranted.
