Människor med rygg- och nackvärk utgör en stor patientgrupp inom primärvården. Många blir inte hjälpta av de behandlingsmetoder som erbjuds. Samtidigt efterfrågas Komplementär och Alternativ Medicinska (KAM) behandlingar allt mer från allmänheten. Behovet att öka hälso- och sjukvårdens kunskap om KAM som behanlingsalternativ sågs. Studiens syfte var att beskriva människors erfarenheter i samband med rygg- och nackvärk och reflexologisk behandling. Metoden var kvalitativ ansats med semistrukturerade intervjuer som analyserades utifrån kvalitativ innehållsanalys. Urvalet omfattade sju klienter som sökt reflexologisk behandling pga rygg- och/eller nackvärk och identifierades genom tre olika reflexologer i Skåne län. I resultatet identifierades kategorin Vardagen med underkategorierna Smärta och värk, Försök till anpassning samt Söka vård och behandling. I Kategorin fysiska och psykiska sensationer sågs underkategorierna Personligt bemötande, Zonsmärta, Cirkulationsökning samt Avslappning. I Kategorin Förändring av vardagen ingick Symtomlindring, Hjälp till självhjälp samt Arbete och idrott. Slutsatsen dras att reflexologisk behandling kan erbjuda bra smärtlindring för människor med rygg- och nackvärk samt erbjuder en chans till avslappning, bättre sömn, vara aktiv i arbetslivet och få ny energi. Mer forksning inom reflexologisk behandling behövs.
