Can Yoga Help Alleviate Back Pain?

Posted By Gwinnett Medical Back & Neck Pain || 4-Jan-2016

Back pains, cramps, and knots can be the most aggravating part of your day. These irritations can make it uncomfortable to stand, walk, and even sit. While it is important to seek help from an experienced chiropractor if you are experiencing back pain, there are other forms of treatment you can apply to your daily regimen. In fact, incorporating yoga into your daily routine can help alleviate various forms of back pain by providing the following:

  • Increase flexibility
  • Increase the amount of time you spend stretching
  • Promote blood flow
  • Lengthen muscles to release knots
  • Strengthen ability to hold proper posture

Which Yoga Poses Should I Practice?

If you are suffering from back pain and interested in incorporating yoga into your everyday routine, it may be wise to find and contact a trustworthy yoga instructor or studio. If you find that a membership to a yoga studio is not within your budget, you can enjoy practicing yoga from the comfort of your own home.

To alleviate back pain, try practicing the following yoga poses:

  • Downward-facing Dog
  • Child’s Pose
  • Pigeon Pose
  • Triangle Pose
  • Cat and Cow Pose
  • Upward Forward Bend
  • Upward-Facing Dog

*Instructions for these poses can be found here.
