Alexander technique does help back pain

20th August 2008

New research has shown that back pain can be helped by the Alexander technique,  a form of therapy which improves posture.

Teams from the University of Southampton and the University of Bristol looked at how effective treatments were in over 500 patients. Following one year of treatment, patients who were taught the Alexander technique said they had only three days of back pain, in comparison to 3 weeks of pain reported by patients given "normal care by their doctor".
