Back, Neck, Shoulder & Other Muscular Skeletal & Joint Pain

So many of us these days - because of illness, injury, stress or just the general wear and tear of life - are living with back or other muscular skeletal pain.  Back pain in particular is one of the most common reasons people go to the doctor or miss work and a leading cause of disability all over the world.  Yet it can be difficult to find effective, long-term treatment.

Often people come to Alexander lessons when they have failed to find adequate help from conventional methods of treatment.  Their problems are very often the results of consistent habits of movement and  reaction that can be relieved by the re-education learned with the Alexander Technique.

Lessons in the Alexander Technique are firstly lessons in self-awareness - the first step in understanding how we cause ourselves pain. Then by relearning proper body mechanics, you can relieve pain and learn how to prevent it recurring.

Over the years it has proved itself helpful for many health concerns and the medical establishment is increasingly referring their patients to Alexander Teachers for a range of muscular-skeletal problems in particular.  Various studies and medical research have proved its effectiveness for back and other pain, for example exciting research has been published in the British Medical Journal (BMJ) that proves that the Alexander Technique is an effective treatment for long-term back pain - better than painkillers, physiotherapy, massage or exercise alone.

The BMJ concluded that:

“One to one lessons in the Alexander technique from registered teachers
have long term benefits for patients with chronic back pain.”
