Why yoga for chronic Low Back Pain? cLBP
- Educational book self help book

All three reduced chronic low back pain.
At the 12 week mark, the yoga reduced cLBP the most according to several scientific studies.
The additional benefits of yoga included:
- Less pain
- Better sleep quality
- Less stress and more
The studies found that there wasn’t much additional pain reduction based on taking one VS two classes a week. Clients also had a home practice.
The cost effectiveness in doing yoga vs PT/Exercise/Book was that the yoga participants only lost 2 days of work due to their cLBP versus doing the usual therapies for low back pain, they lost 43 days of work.
Typically, when you go to the PT or Exercise or read from a self care book,
each one has their way of helping with pain. Yoga adds meditation and breathing which is linked to perceived less pain, better sleep, less stress and more.
