SELF-CARE FOR RECURRING INJURIES

How does the Alexander Technique help people with chronic conditions or recurring injuries?
Often after a serious injury, people will experience vulnerability to reinjury. Examples include after a car accident, broken limb, or back injury.

After undergoing traditional medical treatment and/or physical therapy, they still experience weakness in injured areas, or in new areas which were strained while protecting the injured area.

One indication is that certain activities have to be limited, such as

  • work-related activities
  • sports interests
  • hobbies such as crafts or playing
  • a musical instrument
    because the former level of flexibility and support has not yet been reestablished. Alexander Technique students learn to recover their potential by changing movement patterns to support the injured area.

    It is also an invaluable stress reliever for people facing long-term medical conditions, in that it provides ways for them to contribute to their overall health and stamina level.

    Goals often include...

  • prevention of re-injury
  • alleviating tension
  • increased stamina
  • freer breathing
  • changing counterproductive habits
  • returning to activity after an injury
