A recent joint study suggested that yoga participants with chronic lower back
pain 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, affecting over 80% of the population in US alone some points in their
life.with pain persisted for longer than 3 months,

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.

Roland-Morris Disability Questionnaire scores (RMQ) is a questionnaire of 24-


item patient-reported outcome and measurement about pain-related disability,
in this case, it is lower back pain.

The study also found that treatment group displayed improved more on pain
intensity and reduced opioid usage at 12 weeks and at 6 months in compared to
delay group.
Opioid is a pain reliever with function to binds to one or more of the three
opioid receptors of the body, thus reducing pain.

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.

The Defense & Veterans Pain Rating Scale (DVPRS) is a graphic tool of 1-10
McGill pain scale, used to facilitate self-reported pain diagnoses from patients.

Furthermore, the study also found that continuous yoga participation 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.

Kundalini Yoga (kualin-yoga), also known as laya yoga or "the yoga of


awareness" is a form of technique used to build physical vitality and increase
consciousness through movement, dynamic breathing techniques, meditation,
and the chanting of mantras in aid concentration in meditation.
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.
