The Alexander Technique offers significant, long-term benefits to the problem of back pain.
Back pain is a national problem.
It is one of the most common causes of long-term sickness among workers in the UK.
Almost half the adult population of the UK (49%) report low back pain lasting for at least 24 hours at some time in the year and the National Health Service spends more than £1 billion per year on back pain related costs.
About 8 in 10 people in the UK suffer one or more bouts of lower back pain during their lives. www.backcare.org.uk
According to the NHS, approximately 2.8 million working days were lost in 2013/14 www.patient.co.uk
Learning the Alexander Technique can help to prevent or alleviate conditions associated with tension, poor body use and bad posture, often the causes of back pain.
A randomised controlled trial for patients with chronic low back pain was published in the British Medical Journal in 2008. It showed that 24 Alexander Technique lessons led to a significant reduction in pain from 21 days to 3 days per month, and an improvement in functioning and quality of life by “limiting muscle spasm, strengthening postural muscles, improving co-ordination and flexibility and decompressing the spine”.
