Alternative Therapy: Yoga, In Reduced Functional abdominal pain Frequency and Intensity

Kyle J. Norton 

According to studies online public medical library, yoga intervention may reduce risk and improve functional abdominal pain as a result of gastrointestinal (GI) disorders.

Functional abdominal pain is a condition of functional gastrointestinal (GI) disorders characterized by symptoms of pain associated with diarrhea and/or constipation

People with functional abdominal pain participated in yoga class are likely to experience less intensity of pain and pain frequency, some scientists suggested.

Yoga, the ancient technique for harmonized external and internal body wellbeings, through breath control, meditation, bodily movement and gesture..... has been best known for people in Western world and some parts in Asia due to health benefits reported by various respectable institutes' research and supported by health advocates.

In the study of 20 children, aged 8-18 years, with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) or functional abdominal pain (FAP) were enrolled and received 10 yoga lessons, researchers indicated the following results
*Yoga practice group of  the 8-11 year old group and the 11-18 year old group expressed a less pain frequency and pain was significantly decreased at the end of therapy
*The same above group also expressed a significantly decreased pain intensity
*The pain frequency and intensity also were reduced after 3 months of yoga participated.

Further assessment the study also found that yoga therapy also improves the quality of life score in all participants.

Although how yoga intervention in reduced abnormal pain are still unknown, some researchers suggested that it may be a result of yoga in initiated psychological effect in reduced correlated and interplayed of various aspects including physiological, psychological, and emotional factors which have been found to have strong implication in induction of abnormal pain.

More precisely, yoga mindfulness connected the physical body and mind exerted a profound effect in decreased stress in induction of emotion instability such as anxiety, irritable and anger through relaxing the central nervous system in production of certain hormone observed from the change of changes in gray matter concentration in brain regions involved in emotional regulation and arousal circuit, by MRI in the brain of children participated yoga.

Dr.Brands MM , the led author said, "yoga exercises are effective for children aged 8-18 years with FAP, resulting in significant reduction of pain intensity and frequency, especially in children of 8-11 years old."

Additionally, in support of the above analysis, researchers at the joint study led Jeroen Bosch Hospital conducted experience of 69 patients, ages 8 to 18 years, with abdominal pain-related functional gastrointestinal disorders (AP-FGIDs), randomized to standard medical care (SMC) complemented with yoga therapy (YT) or SMC alone with YT is a mixture of yoga poses, meditation, and relaxation exercises and given once a week in group sessions and SMC consisted of education, reassurance, dietary advice, and fibers/mebeverine, if necessary illustrated that
*Yoga group expressed a significant decrease of Pain intensity (pain intensity score) and frequency (pain frequency score)
* Researchers also notice that after 12 months., during the study, yoga group showed no significantly superior compared with SMC, but Subanalyses suggested other wise (significant greater reduction of PIS at 12 months in favor of YT)
* More importantly, yoga participants showed less school absence in compared to control

In the summary, Dr, Korterink JJ, the led author concluded, "At 1-year follow-up, YT in addition to standard care was superior compared with SMC according to treatment success, PIS, and reduction of school absence".

Surprisingly, yoga participated program created a self consciousness between body and mind, by bring back the presence and dealing the event positive way, thus improving children awareness of the symptom and actively seeking for help from their physicians.

Contrastively, in further concern of the psychological effect of yoga in functional abdominal pain, Dr. Abbott RA, the led author at the joint study led by the University of Exeter Medical School, in the review of the literature of CENTRAL, MEDLINE, Embase, eight other databases, and two trials registers with 18 randomised controlled trials (14 new to this version), reported in 26 papers, involving 928 children and adolescents with RAP between the ages of 6 and 18 years selected said, "yoga therapy compared to control, we found no evidence of effectiveness on (recurrent) pain intensity reduction post intervention (SMD -0.31, 95% CI -0.67 to 0.05; Z = 1.69; P = 0.09; 3 studies; 122 children; low-quality evidence)".

Taking altogether, the findings suggested that yoga may be considered as a secondary intervention combined with standard therapy for treatment of functional abdominal pain and Yoga intervention may be effective in treating patients with recurrent functional abdominal pain.
