Relaxation techniques provide important and useful means of managing pain.
Several relaxation techniques are available. These encourage relaxation of the back muscles by avoiding stress-a common cause of muscular tension. These include progressive muscle relaxation, biofeedback, meditation, visualization, self-hypnosis, and affirmations. They help promote mental and emotional relaxation.
Research by psychologist Francis Keefe at Duke University has shown that relaxation can be effective for patients with low back pain. Several other research on migraines and other chronic pain validates the efficacy of relaxation techniques in managing pain.
