The back pain yoga poses can help alleviate, according to the yoga industry.
The Globe Andamp; Mail found a variety of different yoga poses to be helpful for people suffering from back pain.
In one study, participants were told to sit on a yoga mat for three minutes a day for two weeks.
The researchers found that the participants’ back pain decreased by about one per cent a week, and the average level of pain remained stable for more than three months.
One yoga poses is called ‘pancreatic stretching’ and is described as ‘a series of stretches in which a person sits on a soft, cushioned mat, knees bent, arms at sides and feet pointed out towards the floor, and continues to extend the back muscles to the point where the entire length of the body is being stretched.
Pancreatics are very effective for relieving back pain, but they are often painful and time consuming to do properly.
While it’s important to learn and use these yoga poses correctly, the studies showed that if you can get a good feeling and consistency in them, you’ll be able to relax and focus more on your breathing.
It can be hard to know what’s right for you, so try out these poses to find a practice that works for you.
