A recent joint study suggested that chronic lower back pain yoga participants display a significant improvement on pain intensity in compared to non yoga treatment group.

Yoga is a ancient practical technique of India, included breath control, meditation, bodily movement and gesture,..... with an aim to achieve harmonization of the body, mind, and spirit.

Low back pain is a Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) of degenerative disc disease, with pain persisted for longer than 3 months, affecting over 80% of the population in US alone some points in their life.

In a randomized to either yoga or delayed yoga treatment of 150 military veterans in 2013-2015 with outcomes assessed at baseline, 6 weeks, 12 weeks, and 6 months, group attend yoga lessons expressed a greater reductions in Roland-Morris Disability Questionnaire scores than delayed treatment participants at 6 months.

The study also found that treatment group displayed improved more on pain intensity and reduced opioid usage at 12 weeks and at 6 months compared to delay group.

Dr. Groessl EJ, the lead author said, " Yoga improved health outcomes among veterans despite evidence they had fewer resources, worse health, and more challenges attending yoga sessions than community samples studied previously".

Other, in a parallel randomized controlled trial comparing yoga to education for 120 Veterans with chronic low back pain, yoga treatment group addressed a great positive effects in improved pain score measured by the Defense and Veterans Pain Rating after 24 weeks.

Furthermore, the study also found that continuous yoga participationa after study not only benefits on physical pain but also showed improved psychological comorbidities.

In support to the above differentiation, the 95 adults recruited from an urban safety-net hospital and five community health centers comparing once-weekly (n = 49) versus twice-weekly (n = 46) standardized yoga classes supplemented by home practice study insisted that there was no differences between once-weekly and twice-weekly groups for pain reduction, but at the 12 weeks,  groups with once-weekly or twice-weekly yoga classes exerted the similarly significant efficacy in pain reduction in both group of adults with moderate to severe chronic low back pain.

Truly, evidences in the working population with non-specific low-back pain participated in kundalini yoga at least two times a week, strongly support the effect of yoga in inhibited pain symptom with a significantly reduction in sickness absenteeism.

Taking together, yoga may be one of alternative treatment of ancient techniques having a potential effect in reduced pain in patients with lower back pain, please make sure you mention your specific limitation to your instructor before commencing.
