Injuries also pull the body out of alignment. They are not only traumatic in themselves but they cause the body significant stress, both in the moment of injury and in the compensating behaviors during the healing process (e.g.: the weight and forced immobilization of a cast, the imbalance of crutches, or too much bed rest).

How the Alexander Technique Can Help
Chronic pain is often caused by bad posture, misaligned bodies and lack of knowledge about how to move properly. The Alexander Technique teaches you to address each of these, allowing for the full flow of energy throughout the body. Also, through applying the Alexander Technique you can prevent tiredness, worn out feelings and injuries.
