The Alexander Technique has been demonstrated in clinical trials to be an effective solution to back pain. A recent study published in the British Medical Journal showed that a course of 24 lessons in the Alexander Technique provided long term benefits for patients with chronic or recurrent back pain.
This randomized controlled medical trial demonstrated that one-on-one lessons with an experienced Alexander Technique teacher produced lasting results even after one year without lessons.
The other modalities tested — massage and physical exercise — were not as effective as the Alexander Technique at alleviating back pain.
