Guided imagery
  • Calm, peaceful image
  • Ocean

  • Imaging diverts attention from painful (or
    anxiety producing) experience

Yoga

  • Concentrate energy in the body (postures)
  • Concentrate relaxation attention ( controlled
    breathing)

Tai chi
  • Moderate intensity, low impact, aerobic exercise
  • People I saw in China

Biofeedback
  • Uses immediate biological information
  • Controls muscle tension
  • Heart rate
  • Electromyograph (EMG)
  • Muscle tension
  • Low back pain and headaches

14
Hypnoses
  • Most used by health psychologists to control
    acute (not chronic) pain
  • Other uses
  • Smoking
  • Weight loss
  • Hypnotic trance, VS relaxation, expectancy and
    suggestion to reduce pain

15
Acupuncture
  • Produces biochemical changes in the brain
    consistent with pain relief.
  • Useful for low back pain (similar effect to
    anti-inflammatory drugs.

16
Effectiveness of alternative treatments
  • Treatments are considered alternative because
  • Insufficient evidence exists for their
    effectiveness using randomized, double blind
    placebo controlled studies
  • Low back pain
  • Success with
  • Massage
  • Acupuncture
  • Chiropractic
