Can Alexander Technique Help Fibromyalgia

Can Alexander Technique Help Fibromyalgia

There have been a lot of debates on whether Alexander Technique is effective for other health problems. There are good peer-reviewed trials and testing that were done for conditions like asthma and fibromyalgia. However, most of the established medical authorities see it as an experimental treatment. Yet, this does not mean that they do not recommend it. Some doctors do suggest using the technique for helping people with musculoskeletal pain. There are also evidences that show that such technique is beneficial to those with chronic pain.

One of the most recent studies of such technique done by UK NHS Choices. The organization found that the technique is indeed effective in treating long term back or neck pains. It can also cure Parkinson’s diseases. However, the same study noted that there is little evidence to suggest that it can work for other conditions.

There are still insufficient evidence to suggest that Alexander technique can work for fibro patients. Unfortunately, almost all possible treatments for fibromyalgia are not officially recognized in the medical world. Nevertheless this does not mean that the therapy will not help you as every individual respond differently to various treatments.
