BRIEF SUMMARY

A multidisciplinary pain management programme was assessed in people living with chronic pain. Thirty four people with various types of chronic pain participated in the study. The programme consisted of educational lectures and/or group discussions with nurses, physiotherapists and psychologists, auto-hypnosis and relaxation, personal exercise training, and Alexander Technique sessions. The study reported that the Alexander Technique sessions were consistently rated by the participants as the most useful component of the programme.

Help with pain

The advice and coaching from my Alexander teacher during training for a London to Paris bike ride transformed my experience immeasurably and I am pleased to say that I was really able to enjoy the event without suffering as many of my co-participants did. I would urge anyone who is considering any physical challenge and is interested in, or, practising AT to seek some specific AT tips and advice.
