Yoga For Lower Back Pain


Lower back pain could result from a number of reasons including your posture, sedentary lifestyle or any underlying ailment in your body. You could undertake yoga exercise for your back once the exact cause has been determined. Yoga for lower back pain includes asanas like Pavanmuktaasana (Wind Removing Pose) and Bhujangasana (Cobra Pose), both of which are extremely helpful in relieving your lower back pain. These exercises provide more flexibility to your back muscles and protect them from injury and pain.

Practice of yoga exercises and an intake of a nutritious and balanced diet form a yoga routine for lower back pain. You should practice the yoga poses in a calm and unhurried manner. Intake of a nutritious diet will also keep your lower back pain at bay. An active lifestyle and proper body hygiene also need to be included in your routine.

Rest well and lie down on a flat surface with proper support for the spine. Rest until all the symptoms of pain have passed away. Do not attempt strenuous exercises and injure your back further. Topical applications consisting of capsaicin or Vitamin D also bring lower back pain relief. Relax your mind with soothing music while you lie down straight on a firm surface to relieve your lower back pain.

Yoga Or Aerobis : Which One Is More Effective To Cure Lower Back Pain


Aerobic exercises are beneficial to your body and wellbeing as they boost the supply of oxygen and nutrients to the muscles. This helps to hasten the healing process and alleviates lower back pain. Walking is a good aerobic exercise for lower back pain. It brings in suppleness to the muscles of your back. Besides being an injury-free exercise, walking also boosts the level of endorphins in your body. They act as natural painkillers and relieve your pain. Resting your back for a day or two can bring down the pain, but later, moderate activity is required to make your muscles flexible and free of stiffness that causes pain.

A step ahead of the traditional or classical way of practicing yoga, Bikram yoga advocates that the yoga exercises be carried out in an environmental temperature of about 105 degree Fahrenheit. In this heated state, the muscles of your back become more flexible, and the results of the exercise can be more effective. Bikram yoga for back pain involves practicing the Ushtrasana (Camel Pose) and Salabhasana (Locust Pose) in a strain free manner. Do not overdo your yoga exercise and stop when you experience hurting pain. By increasing the stretchable capacity of your muscles, Bikram yoga brings much relief to your lower back pain.
