Can Yoga Help My Back Pain? Part 5

Article by Glen Wood – the Yoga Teacher







The more you put in the more you get out, and if you are like me, I want the best out of my body and the best out of life and yoga helps me get there.

A few million years ago we stood on two legs and since that we have probably had trouble with our backs ever since. With gravity pulling us in a downward direction when we are awake its no wonder we have trouble.

Its been estimated that over 50 billion dollars every year is what it costs with back injuries, missed work and treatment. I wonder how much could be saved if free yoga centres were set up to help those with back pain?

There has been great success at the Chopra Centre for Well being in the United States with yoga therapy. They use consciousness based programmes, these are designed to enhance the mind and body integration. As an aside, Deepak Chopra has gone a stage further by introducing a system in hospitals that stimulates the senses in his patients for a quicker recovery. How much money could be saved by introducing these methods?

This will make you smile. I read recently that an 87 year old lady in America visited her clinic because she had severe sciatica, a lot of pain down her leg. She mentioned that she as far as she could remember she has never had any back pain or sciatica before. Her doctor thought that was strange because most people have some form of back pain in their early years let alone in their eighties.

He suggested working on the lower lumber spine with gentle manipulation. After working on the lady it transpired that she has been doing yoga for over 60 years! And she is still practicing. It is no surprise that she has been free from back pain if she has been doing yoga for that long. The other thing he mentioned was that she didn’t look a day over 65!

It is reported that over 5 million people who are in the UK who at some level stressed at work with a cost of £3.7 billion every year. By introducing a system, a plan for workers to relieve this stress could save them a lot of money. So why are they dragging their feet? A happy employee produces more and better results.
