Yoga Therapy for Back Pain
The ancient yogis were well aware of the importance of the spine in relation to diseases such as back pain and neck pain, since most of their asanas or postures were designed to make the spine more flexible to prevent spinal misalignment. Some of the asanas will even correct minor spinal misalignments. The spine is so important for a high vitality level, good health and the correction of many health conditions that a whole science of healing has been developed to correct spinal misalignment.
Illness occurs when the total balance of perfect health is deranged. Yoga with asanas relaxes and tones the muscles as well as massages the internal organs. Thus, inner harmony is restored and health on all levels improves. The aim of Yoga is to maintain a balance between the psychopathological and spiritual aspects. Yoga, fundamentally is considered a therapeutic adjuvant.
