Along with traditional therapy, a client asks the nurse about alternative therapies for chronic pain. Which could the nurse provide to the client?

  • yoga
  • acupuncture
  • music therapy
  • hypnosis
Number 3 is correct.
Music therapy is effective as an alternative therapy for chronic pain and may be done by the nurse. Yoga, acupuncture, and hypnosis may be effective alternative therapies but are not within the domain of nursing.
