Back Pain

A major study involving 579 patients published in the British Medical Journal found that one to one Alexander Technique lessons have long term benefits for people with chronic lower back pain compared to massage and exercise.   Twenty-four Alexander Technique lessons proved to be the most beneficial.  After  a year those who had Alexander Technique lessons had on average three days of pain per month compared with 21 days per month with usual GP care.
