“Ommm…” leads to “Ahhhh…”
for many Vancouver low back pain patients.
Vancouver Disc Centers encourages its
chiropractic low back pain patients to attempt therapies and exercises that cause them to say "ahhh" ! We’ve had quite a few of our
patients try yoga and really like it. Their lower back pain calms with yoga practice along
with their chiropractic care. Certainly, Vancouver Disc Centers also recommends our back pain patients to discuss this with us before starting any new exercise program, but yoga may prove to be a good one to try.
Now, it's not that those who practice yoga are free of
health problems. Many Vancouver yoga participants likely take yoga
classes and practice it at home because they like it. And participating in yoga
only once or twice a week doesn't really matter. One study found
participants benefited from care either way. (1) So schedule just a class a week and see how well you feel!
Interestingly, in another study of those who practice yoga,
60% reported having at least one chronic or serious health condition. But most yoga folks believe that their health
is improved because of yoga. And that's great! Elderly women and those battling
with chronic health problems may be two groups that truly benefit most from
yoga. A few of the overall improvements
yoga participants report are in their
- Levels of happiness
- Social relationships
- Weight management (2)
So consider yoga if you haven't before. Chat with us first
before starting yoga, but it may be a great addition to your back pain treatment
plan. We look forward to working with you and hearing your "ahhh..." ! Contact Vancouver Disc Centers today.
