Yoga has been practiced for centuries and for good reason! The health benefits are nearly endless. Practicing yoga regularly can help reduce anxiety, depression, increase blood flow—and yes, it has even been proven to reduce lower back pain!
How Can Yoga Help?
Although not all yoga moves will be beneficial for everyone and one yoga session won’t cure all, you can expect a significant increase in flexibility and a reduction in back pain after incorporating the poses into your regular exercise routine. Other alternative treatments to improve back pain include heading to your local Peabody chiropractor, Dr. Danubio at Danubio Chiropractic. We recommend a yoga session at least twice a week for eight weeks and a visit to the chiropractic office once a week, depending on the extent of your back pain.
Is Yoga Right for You?
Be sure to discuss with your chiropractor about whether or not yoga will be beneficial for your lower back pain before you sign up for your first class. Those with slipped discs and pain caused my car accidents should be especially cautious about what yoga to start with.
Once you’ve been cleared by a chiropractor, start off in a beginners yoga course where the moves have been modified for people who may not be as flexible or stable. Over time, the course will progress to more challenging poses. The goal is to increase circulation to your lower back and to stretch the minute muscles that connect to your spinal cord and hip bones.
