Harvard Medical School published a great article about relief from chronic neck pain. 

The article discusses research relieving neck pain using acupuncture or the Alexander Technique. The lead author of the research stated, 

“These treatments may be viable options for people with longtime neck pain, or for those who have not responded to conventional treatments,” says lead author Dr. Hugh MacPherson of the University of York.

The Alexander Technique is a method of re-educating the body through movement to reduce tension and change poor habits. It is really super interesting. Acupuncture, of course, has a long history of relieving pain. In my practice, I work with a great number of people with neck pain

The research in the Harvard article states: 

  • The acupuncture patients experienced a 32% reduction in pain
  • The Alexander Technique patients experienced a 31% reduction in pain
  • The usual care group experienced 23% reduction in pain. 

Harvard Health Publications does a great deal of work looking into complementary medicine. It is wonderful to see such a powerful voice promoting acupuncture and complementary health care
