Whether your back is just a little achy, or you feel like you can’t stand up from a chair without collapsing in pain, you are not alone. As awful and life-consuming as back pain can be, it’s also incredibly common. According to the American Chiropractic Association, 80 percent of the population will experience back pain in their lifetimes. And according to one study in the journal Spine, 25 percent of adults in the United States experienced back pain in the previous three months.
Yoga poses for lower back pain can offer relief. It may seem counterintuitive, but moving is the best thing you can do for your body when you’re experiencing pain.
One of the beautiful things about yoga is that you can approach the activity with care and caution. You can choose poses or flows that feel comfortable. And you can adjust positions based on your own ability level. It’s also a way to engage in flowing exercise that focuses on balance, flexibility, coordination, and core strength. Together, they may help mitigate your pain.
