Neck Pain

To date, two trials have been conducted to evaluate the outcome of Alexander lessons for people with chronic neck pain, a large randomised controlled clinical trial and a smaller study :

1. The large randomised controlled trial called ATLAS (Alexander Technique Lessons or Acupuncture Sessions for people with chronic neck pain). Several papers have been published on the results. Read about:

2. A much smaller trial assessing the effect of Alexander lessons for people with chronic neck pain.

The Alexander Technique has improved my posture so I’m more upright and seeing the top of buildings I’d never noticed for 20 years. It’s also helped with lower back pain and tightness in my upper back and neck. During the 6 months I’ve been learning the Technique I’ve had virtually no football injuries, and friends say I look younger. This has made a radical difference.
