It Can Be.: As part of a treatment plan, the alexander techniques work on changing and improving physical postural habits that could be associated with the cause of the pain or preventing the correction of the cause.

Yes: The alexander technique aims to teach people how to stand, hold themselves and move differently in order to eliminate unnecessary tension in their bodies. The alexander technique has been shown to be helpful for people suffering from tension headaches, back pain, frozen shoulders, housemaid's knee, flat feet, tennis elbow, minor digestive problems, asthma, difficulties sleeping, and clumsiness.
