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 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.
