“Ommm…” leads to “Ahhhh…” for many Baton Rouge low back pain patients.

Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers advocates for its chiropractic low back pain patients to attempt therapies and exercises that cause them to say "ahhh" ! We’ve had quite a few of our patients try yoga and really like it. Their lower back pain calms with yoga practice as well as with their chiropractic care. Without a doubt, Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers also recommends our back pain patients to discuss this with us before kicking off any new exercise program, but yoga may prove to be a good one to try.

Now, it's not that those who practice yoga are free of health problems. Many Baton Rouge yoga participants likely take yoga classes and practice it at home because they like it. And partaking in yoga only once or twice a week doesn't really matter. One study found participants benefited from care either way. (1) So schedule just a class a week and see how well you feel!

Interestingly, in another study of those who practice yoga, 60% reported having at least one chronic or serious health condition. But most yoga folks believe that their health is improved because of yoga. And that's great! Elderly women and those battling with chronic health problems may be two groups that truly benefit most from yoga. A few of the overall improvements yoga participants report are in their

  • Levels of happiness
  • Social relationships
