Background & Aims: The study strived to investigate the effectiveness of Electromyography (EMG) biofeedback with relaxation training on reduction of the duration of headaches in migraine patients in Isfahan.

Materials & Methods: In this study, two patients with chronic migraine were selected using purposeful sampling. This investigation used a single subject with A-B design. Intervention was started after determining the base-line. The EMG biofeedback was taught to each single participant for 24 sessions of 45-minute intervention sessions, and 1 month after the intervention period, the follow-up test was performed. The instrument used was headache diary checklist.

Results: It was revealed that during the visual analysis of data graphs for EMG biofeedback on the reduction of duration of headaches, the intervention was significantly effective for all 2 participants.

Conclusion: This study showed that EMG biofeedback with relaxation training could reduce the reduction of headaches in migraine patients. As other studies concluded, besides this treatment taking medication could lead to more lasting effects and reduce the duration of the attacks.
