Scientific studies have shown that yoga is a safe and effective treatment for back pain.
Chronic back pain is a condition which has only few effective treatments. Those who are suffering from back pain are looking for a relief that doesn’t involve potentially dangerous drugs.
The researchers conducted a randomized clinical study to know which form of yoga is best suited for back ache. They finally chose a type of yoga called viniyoga for their experiment though there are many styles of yoga.
Viniyoga focuses on warming up muscles before beginning the stretches to reduce the chances of injury. Viniyoga is not the only type of yoga that has been shown to be useful for aches and pains, but it is one of the most adaptable of the many schools of yoga.
Modern medicine is not able to do much about chronic back pain. It seems that the ancient practice of yoga may be an effective treatment for back pain.
Other popular styles of yoga are Ashtanga, Sivananda, Jivamukti, Ananda, etc.
