OSR loves YOGA! Not only have we held yoga classes here at Oahu Spine & Rehab, but many of our staff members and patients are also devoted “yogis”. Our integrated clinic offers certain “Eastern” medicine practices like acupuncture and massage therapy that are not only complementary to yoga but highly recommended. Also, yoga is one of the best low impact exercises for people with chronic pain.
Yoga Poses for Chronic Pain
Yoga involves a lot of stretching and calming poses that are perfect for those who suffer from chronic pain. Stretching out and elongating your spine is a great way to alleviate back, neck, and hip pain. Our medical staff, physical therapists and chiropractic team here at OSR all agree that yoga can help relieve stress and tension that is built up in your muscles. Some of the stretches that you can find on our treatment plans ARE yoga positions. Stress is one of the main components that leads to chronic pain. Thankfully, yoga offers calming poses that can aid in releasing your stress.
All of the physical therapists at OSR agree that yoga is a great way to strengthen and stretch your muscles. Yoga, along with meditation, acupuncture and massage therapy are some of the best things that you can do for your body in terms of relieving stress and chronic pain. We believe that having acupuncture and massage therapy in your treatment plan can greatly benefit your pain level. If you or a friend or family member is suffering from chronic pain, call us today at 488-5555 to make an appointment. Interested in hosting a yoga class at OSR in Kailua? Contact us here!
