This article describes some of the nonpharmacological treatment options and their evidence (e.g. physical therapy, massage, manual therapy, electrotherapy, acupuncture and music therapy). The evidence for an empirically detected effectiveness of all these forms of therapy is not very high and often inconsistent.

My new colleague quickly explains the procedure and soon has the patient comfortably inside the bore of the magnet. He then clicks on the CD player and instantly the distinct, rough voice of Bruce Springsteen permeates the control room and our patient's headphones. Maybe our young patient loves listening to aged American rockers? Or, perhaps he would prefer the Arctic Monkeys who happen to be at number 1 thi...
