What is Yoga and how can it help you fight back pain?
Just like exercise, Yoga is an inexpensive and easy practice that helps people fight back pain and other chronic conditions. It has been around for more than 4,000 years helping people from different walks of life achieve not only a fit body but a healthy mind, as well. Many studies have proven the effectiveness of performing Yoga in relieving back pain.
Yoga provides many benefits, and some of these benefits that are related to back pain include the following:
- Increased strength
Yoga targets some very specific muscles and muscle groups in your body. Some of the Yoga poses discussed in the Top 10 Yoga Poses To Relieve You Of Your Back Pain book require you to concentrate on and use the different muscles in your body, most especially the muscles at the back and the abdominal muscles. These two muscle groups are very important components of the muscular network of your spine, which helps in keeping a good upright posture and movement. Keeping these muscle groups in good condition helps relieve and avoid back pain.
- Increased relaxation
Yoga involves stretching of some stress-carrying muscles, including the back muscles. Some of the yoga poses in the Top 10 Yoga Poses To Relieve You Of Your Back Pain book can provide the best benefit for your back if held for 10 to 60 seconds. This helps flex and stretch the target muscles, promoting relaxation and flexibility in your muscles and joints.
- Improves posture
Yoga helps improve your body's posture and balance and the alignment of your spine. The Yoga poses discussed in the Top 10 Yoga Poses To Relieve You Of Your Back Pain book are focused on helping you achieve the best posture and alignment for your body. With proper posture, balance, and alignment, back pain effectively is reduced or avoided.
