Can The Alexander Technique Help With Chronic Back Pain?
Can the Alexander Technique help with chronic back pain management?
Is the Alexander Technique effective for chronic back pain management? This is a question I often hear as an Alexander Technique teacher. Can the Alexander Technique help with chronic back pain management, can the Alexander Technique help with chronic neck pain management, can the Alexander Technique help with chronic low back pain management? Yes.
The Alexander Technique teaches you a way to move or sit in ways that set the conditions so that your back can finally heal itself, even in cases where the problem is ‘structural’, such as herniated discs and bone spurs (I had bone spurs in my neck. Not fun.)
What is the difference between the Alexander Technique and chiropractic, acupuncture, and massage therapy, regarding chronic back pain management? You don’t ‘do’ the Alexander Technique once or twice per week. You practice the Alexander Technique as you live your life, as you go about all your everyday routines. This is one reason why it works.
