A new study points to yoga as an alternative to drug therapy in the treatment of lower back pain. However, obviously caution must be used and yoga should only be practiced under the guidance of a qualified instructor. The report also points out that a regular course of stretching will also achieve the same results in alleviating muscle pain if you are not into the whole “yoga thing”.
The most important and recurring theme from all these medical studies regarding joint and muscle pain treatments is to stay active and keep your weight under control. However, as many of us know, following that advice is never easy when getting out of bed in the morning is extremely painful.
