Restorative Yoga: Practice Your Healing

It’s a great exercise for health and relaxation, but how can yoga help chronic pain patients, specifically?

Calm Down

Knowing that you’re going to spend your next hour, or half our, or fifteen minutes, on your yoga mat can calm your thinking and make it easier to set your focus on the task at hand. If you are able to slip into relaxation mode, you may release stress and promote repair in your body.

Get Strong

Working core muscles can help rehabilitate the spine, and can be helpful for healing and comfort, especially if your chronic pain is concentrated in your back. Yoga can also improve stability and strength in thighs and calves.

Be Mindful

If you’ve got the yoga thing down, and want to take things a step further, consider the practice of mindfulness meditation.

Mindfulness meditation encourages individuals to acknowledge feeling without giving it significance, and has a proven track record of helping those who suffer from chronic pain. When paired with yoga, it has been found to be an effective pain management tool.
