Yoga improves your strength, flexibility, balance and mental wellbeing.
All of these are benefits when you’re tackling pain. The largest ever UK study on yoga and lower back pain found yoga helped:
- Improve posture
- Reduce stiffness
- Improve stress levels.
The study published in the Annals of Internal Medicine found that after 3 months, yoga was 30% more effective in improving the ability to do everyday tasks compared to back pain treatment usually recommended by GPs.
