Yoga for Back Pain

Yoga for Back Pain


main focuses we were going to talk about
back pain at me because 17 million people are affected by that in the UK
that’s over one-third of the adult population however if you’re suffering
anything from my Manor twinge to an ich you can make a difference here is Coby
Langford to tell you one we hope back pain needn’t be a life sentence
amazingly ninety percent of back pain is not serious and only ten percent
requires medical attention I’ve suffered with back pain since my early 20s the
pain is always there but some days it’s so bad I can’t glow I just have to stay
home and lie out straight until the pain subsides the causes of back pain are
surprisingly simple the muscles and consequently the joints are either too
stiff and tight or to mobile and too weak both of which result in pain and he’s around to the right lovely and
I in the back heel to raise up off the floor perfect whether you have chronic
back pain or just a slight niggle in my experience your back pain can be
dramatically reduced by doing the correct exercises that target the
specific tissues that are causing your problem and twist around to the front
lovely bringing the lip right foot forward and allow the left foot to twist
out to the left and worse around to the left allowing the right here to raise up
getting a lovely twist through these tissues here you don’t need to do ours now as a
laborious exercises even if you can dedicate 15 minutes a day you will
really help to reduce your baby and relax well we’ll be joins me now with
back pain sufferer Jane hodgkin’s or should I see former back being softer
because you’ve seen no you feel great yeah it’s amazing hello fantastic how
long did it take to feel better I’ve been doing the program for four weeks so
far four weeks rent and did you notice the different traitor we’re was you
notice a difference probably the last week to two weeks as well it’s been
significant and before that were you taken medication for your back p no I
wasn’t taking medication i would take painkillers when i got really bad and no
i wasn’t taking anything for right but with this presumably no side effects at
all you know you just you doona it looked very gentle actually it was quite
gentle carbon chains intent is targeted to certain muscles of the back so you’re
really kind of targeting exercises to the muscles that need strengthening and
certain muscles need stretching but it’s kind of like a formula because obviously
if you do strengthening exercises on muscles that are too tight you’re just
going to send them into spasm and you’re going to make your back pain work right
and if you do a really strong stretching program on over mobile joints you’re
going to make yourself you can destabilize your back I’m going to make
it worse so you find that sometimes you can make your back pain worse and if you
tell me what you’re doing so you have to know what your daddy really do really
really do so drew yoga it’s called this this sort of discipline of yoga can you
go and have lessons in this or you go to a practitioner to help you out oh no you
know thus created class is all over the world and factor all over the UK so
absolute you can go to classes or you can come someone like myself where if
you want to target back pain we do train when I teach on through yoga teacher
training course like a train our teachers how to address back pain so
really I say if you have back pain and you want to try yoga for your back pain
do try yoga because it’s they’re trained to hear ya so you have to you have to be
careful about to do it helidon s is good because again there’s no side effects is
clearly working for you working very well for you which is fantastic and also
I suppose what’s really good is you you’re doing it not yourself you did it
together but you’ve taken control of your onus of your
yeah you can do it yourself and it’s actually quite easy it’s easy to do you
don’t need to be a yoga expert oh you know what you’re doing I guess it’s a
good idea it’s another way is very good ninety percent of all back pain would
respond to something like this and I wish there was a Kobe in every GP
surgery thank you know because you know so many back pains would respond just to
lifestyle changes to exercise which is targeted to the area that’s concerned
and I think the conventional medical fraternity are very poor at diagnosing
back pain and sorting it out we don’t assess properly we just say well just
rest up and you know give it six weeks but actually rest is the last thing you
should be doing you should be strengthening those weak muscles because
the muscles support the spine and ease the pain so pain killers have side
effects this doesn’t and this would actually be very cost effective if the
NHS but it in place it’s not money it cause back pain you don’t even think
they meant people that off there were absolutely and of course work is work
the workplace is is an area where a lot of people initiate their problems that
the you know the seat aren’t in the right place for the desk so they’re
looking at the right angle in the neck is constantly in one wrong position that
lumber spine is in the wrong place and it’s very important that people get
their workplace it says if at there are five tips that I would give people the
first is to have your workstation assess make sure you’re in the right angle your
posture is good I mean you look at the Waco be sitting there I know and get
some supportive you’ve got pain in your lumber spine or elsewhere get a support
for that area so that it’s actually you know got some s and support behind it
get up and walk around every 40 minutes if you’re sitting at work at a desk get
up every 40 minutes or so minimum have a little walk have a little stretch as
well stretch every couple of hours in a minimum and drink lots of water to keep
healthy dehydration doesn’t help muscles just live sensibly and it does pay
dividends and these exercises you’ve got back pain much better than painkillers
much better than epidurals much better than anything that lets us traditional
doctors do you have a fantastic but mostly and it’s all it’s all about
being able to do it by yourself as well you know when she once you know when she
got the skills then you can I found I could puncture from my bed back worked
really well because the medication was really upsetting my stomach and the
acupuncture works beautifully so worth a try absolutely I’m sorts of special
seats you know the exercise balls that you can sit on four core strength at
lunch back and back saddle seats are very good cheer all sorts of seating
that you can get in your workstation to to help don’t suffer in silence thank
you very much HC thank you
