Back to Health: Yoga for Back Pain
Chronic back pain is one of the most common health issues facing people today. Around 80 percent of adults can expect to experience it at some point in their life. For those struggling to roll themselves out of bed in the morning or to bend over to tie their shoes, the problem seems incurable, despite pain medication and exercise. However, new research finds that yoga designed specifically for back pain can be as safe and effective as physical therapy in easing pain.
This 6 week class series is a specialize, evidence based yoga course designed to give those with chronic or recurring back pain a toolkit to improve and maintain a healthy back for life. The yoga protocol was developed by researchers at Boston Medical Center with input from yoga teachers, doctors and physical therapists and used in a randomized, controlled trail to compare yoga, physical therapy and education for chronic back pain. At the end of the study, researchers found that this yoga course, that focuses on gentle yoga poses and relaxation, is just as effective as physical therapy in helping to deal with back pain.
This course is comprised of easy, foundational yoga poses and is designed for beginner yoga students that have had a recent physical checkup and have their personal physician’s permission to engage in yoga classes.
