Yoga for the Spine
The latest NICE guidelines suggests Yoga exercises for low back pain and sciatica. Yoga is thought to have originated in India circa 2000 BCE and is often interpreted as the union of mind, body and soul.
The spine moves in physical yoga practice (also called asana) through extension, flexion, lateral flexion, twisting or relaxed in lying or sitting and involves a steady and comfortable position. Practicing asana regularly, can help improve flexible and build strength.
