Alexander Technique for back pain
This 10 min video summarises the NHS randomised trial that was done to show the effectiveness of learning the Alexander Technique to help deal with back pain.
‘Extensive coverage has today been given to a study that found the Alexander technique – a method of teaching improved posture – is beneficial for easing back pain. The study on the technique involved over 500 people with chronic back pain from general practices across the UK. It found that people who received one-to-one instruction in the Alexander technique, along with exercise, had reduced back pain and improved disability after one year compared to those receiving standard care.’
