Yoga eases moderate to severe chronic low back pain

At a Glance

  • The results suggest yoga may be useful as a treatment option for people with chronic low back pain.


Low back pain can range from a dull, constant ache to a sudden, sharp sensation that leaves you incapacitated. The pain can begin abruptly as a result of an accident or lifting something heavy, or it can develop over time due to age-related changes of the spine.
