Viniyoga proved to be effective in relieving lower back pain as shown in the clinical study conducted by the National Institute of Health.
SEATTLE, Dec. 20 – The ancient practice of yoga proved to be more effective in reducing chronic back pain than either aerobic exercise or a self-help book.
So says a study in the Dec. 20 issue of Annals of Internal Medicine in which investigators compared three types of treatment among 101 chronic back pain patients.
They found a gentle form of yoga called viniyoga proved to be more beneficial in alleviating back pain symptoms and improving function. The benefits also lingered weeks after the study was over.
