Yoga  ameliorated symptoms and complications of patient with Schizophrenia, particular in improved postural stability, a renowned institute reported.

Schizophrenia is a mental disorder induced inconsistent or contradictory elements such as breakdown of certain relation in thought, emotion, and behavior, leading to faulty perception, inappropriate actions and feelings,....

Yoga, the ancient technique practice is used in parts of India to promote the body to heal itself through enhancing the physical and mental well being.

According to the Keio University School of Medicine, patients with schizophrenia-spectrum disorders showed a significant improvement in risk of falling that may lead to fractures, after attending the yoga lessons.

In an 8 week single-blind randomized controlled study with an eight-week follow-up of outpatients with schizophrenia or related psychotic disorder (ICD-10) randomly assigned to either yoga therapy or a control group, yoga treatment group expressed a significant improvement in a total length of trunk motion, the Romberg ratio(a set feature in the sensory organization test (SOT) as an indicator of proprioceptive contribution to postural stability), and ante flexion in standing after 8 weeks in compared control.

Dr. Ikai S, the lead author said, "the beneficial effects of the yoga therapy on postural stability in patients with schizophrenia. However, the therapeutic effects seemed transient, which warrants further investigations on strategies to sustain the improvements.".

Furthermore, in the review of the data base of the Cochrane Schizophrenia Group Trials Register (December 2008), based on regular searches of CINAHL, EMBASE, MEDLINE and PsycINFO,
yoga had a better outcome for mental state as well as physical health improved significantly in the exercise group compared to those in standard care.

The study also indicated that beside enhanced mental and physical well being, yoga therapy also improved the quality of life in patients with schizophrenia.

Taking together, there is no doubt that yoga has a potential effect in reduced postural physical disability and promoted quality of life in patients with schizophrenia with no adverse effects.
