In the Alexander technique, the term ‘misuse’ refers to a person’s inappropriate behaviour or use of their psychophysical self that disturbs their intrinsic balance and harms the way in which their being functions.

The ultimate cause of misuse, in FM Alexander's understanding, is the universal habit of endgaining.
