Finally, Relief From Back and Neck Pain

There are specific Healing Touch techniques to address problems of the back and neck that can decrease pain and improve range of motion.

Back and neck problems are very common and can create significant stress and disability in those who are experiencing pain from these conditions. References to back or neck problems often describe physical and/or emotional components of a person’s experience.  Healing Touch has been shown to provide relief from neck and back pain while increasing range of motion and an overall improvement in the important area of relaxation.

One interesting study compared Healing Touch and Chiropractic adjustment in treating chronic low back pain.  Each participant experienced some degree of improvement ranging from minimal to dramatic as a result of the treatments. Both the Healing Touch and chiropractic groups had statistically significant decreases in pain, improvement in range of motion, and improvement in orthopedic measurements. At the end of the study, there were people in both groups who were still suffering from pain.   Participants from the chiropractic group were invited to receive four HT treatments each to see if a combination of treatments would bring further improvement. The effects of HT were noticeable, primarily in the relaxation response.
