Start Yoga to Get Rid of Back Pain

02 Aug 17

A study has shown that yoga is a perfect remedy that can cure back pain. The researchers, with the VA San Diego Healthcare System and the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine, have recently conducted a study.

It’s been found through the research that veterans, on whom the study had been practiced, had better scores on a disability questionnaire, improved pain intensity scores. As per the research, the people went through a 12-week yoga program and got a decline in opioid use. The study is one of its kinds because it shows promise for non-drug treatment of chronic low back pain said the lead researcher, Dr. Erik J. Groessl. The scientists added that yoga is beneficial to both veterans and non-veterans with chronic pain. Additionally, yoga reduces the reliance upon opioids and other medications with side effects.

The scientists said that the 12 -week yoga practice consisted of two 60-minute instructor-led yoga sessions per week. The classes also included home practice sessions. Hatha yoga was the base of the intervention that involves movement sequences and mindfulness meditation, along with regulated breathing and yoga postures.
