Yoga Can Benefit Those With Back Pain

Many patients turn to light exercise and stretching in combination with chiropractic treatment to alleviate their back pain. Some may not find all or any exercises to be helpful, but research shows that practicing yoga has many benefits for those who suffer from back pain. Yoga is a light exercise that incorporates flexibility and relaxation of muscle groups. The three main focuses of yoga include breathing, body position/posture, and meditation.

Some benefits of yoga include:

  • Healing injured back muscles
  • Speeding time to recover from an injury
  • Preventing re-injury
  • Helping maintain a regular level of daily activities and avoid disability

Yoga is especially helpful for lower back pain as it gently stretches and strengthens those core low back muscles that may be aggravated by other forms of exercise. Practicing yoga also increases blood circulation in the body which brings nutrients to those damaged tissues and promotes rehabilitation to those areas.

Yoga is not a universal cure for back pain, but studies do show that if patients practice yoga twice a week over a period of 8 weeks they experience a great increase in strength, flexibility, and endurance, which are similar goals of most rehabilitation practices. Yoga can be modified for those who are just beginners and that may have health limitations. Two conditions in particular may cause difficulty for some while doing yoga:

  • Patients who have been diagnosed with advanced spinal stenosis should avoid extreme extension of the spine such as back bends in yoga.
  • Patients with advanced cervical spine disease should avoid doing headstands and shoulder stands in yoga.

However, precautions can be taken in advance for those suffering from these conditions. Before starting a new exercise routine, please check with your health care provider first.
