Pain is one of the initial symptoms in oral cancer, and is a prevalent condition in patients who are waiting for the treatment and in those undergoing treatment. Literature reviews very little data on the management of oral cancer pain nonpharmacologically. Successful management of pain control needs to be tackled by a multimodal approach. There is no confirmation of the effectiveness of nonpharmacological ways as relaxation, imagery, hypnosis, distraction, and biofeedback for the treatment of oral cancer pain. Recently, biofeedback and relaxation therapy are known to be a potential treatment for an extensive range of conditions. This biofeedback therapy can be applied to oral cancer pain management through the muscle relaxation technique is being covered in the present review.
