The Benefits of Yoga and Physical Therapy

Another study is touting the benefits of yoga—this time, for people with back problems. The new research put yoga head-to-head against physical therapy and found the two were equally good at restoring function and reducing the need for pain medication over time.

In the study, published in Annals of Internal Medicine, a group of 320 people did 12 weeks of yoga or physical therapy, or they simply received a book and newsletters about coping with back pain. People in the active treatment groups reported that their pain was less intense than it was at the start of the study and that they were able to physically move more. Some were also able to reduce, or even stop, their pain medications.

Those improvements stuck around for a full year after the study was over.

Physical therapy is the most common non-drug treatment for chronic low back pain prescribed by doctors, and it’s often at least partly covered by health insurance. Guidelines and scientific research also support yoga as a recommendation for people back pain.

The once-a-week yoga classes in the study were designed specifically for back-pain patients, the authors note, so the results may not apply to all types of yoga or all kinds of classes. 

Give Legacy Rehabilitation Group a call at 763-267-6654 for a free physical therapy assessment, or request an appointment online. For a limited time, we are offering free 15 minute massages for new patients. We also have weekly yoga classes on Wednesdays from 5-6 p.m., so sign up here
