Interesting Study: New Study Adds Growing Evidence that Yoga and Meditation Can Reduce Chronic Pain. I can attest to that study, as it has helped me with my chronic back pain!

https://www.yogauonline.com/yoga-research/new-study-adds-growing-evidence-yoga-and-meditation-can-reduce-chronic-pain

The study echoes previous findings on the benefits of yoga and meditation for chronic pain published in 2016 in the prestigious Journal of the American Medical Association.

“The bottom line is that patients are seeking new ways to cope with chronic pain and effective non-pharmaceutical treatments are available,” says Dr. Marske. “Our findings show meditation and yoga can be a viable option for people seeking relief from chronic pain.”

The effectiveness of yoga for chronic low back pain

Why yoga for chronic Low Back Pain? cLBP

Weekly online classes with Gail, to reduce your chronic low back pain.
  • Educational book self help book
  • Exercise / PT
  • Yoga
  • All three reduced chronic low back pain.

All three reduced chronic low back pain.

At the 12 week mark, the yoga reduced cLBP the most according to several scientific studies.

But…

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.
