Yoga For Computer Users Releases Lower Back Pain

Yoga for Computer Users: Releases Lower Back Pain

Twenty percent of ​ all those who undergo surgery for lower back pain will get no relief. the​ remaining 80 percent will have problems ranging from mild to​ ​ severe. All will have trouble with spinal flexion.

Yoga does not offer cures. it ​ simply promises that if ​ you faithfully practice these asanas every day,​ there will be no pain and you will build up a ​ strong and supple spine,​ restructuring posture and body image. Once you have back problems you must remain conscious all through the​ day of ​ how you stand,​ sit and lie down. Here are a ​ few guidelines:

Always sleep on​ a ​ firm (not necessarily hard) bed,​ with a ​ flat pillow under your head and a ​ thicker one under your knees. This will help the​ spine to​ ​ reposition and adjust itself.

Do not wear high heels as this promotes lumbar lordosis and throws the​ spine out of ​ balance.

Do not go in​ ​ for break-dancing,​ strenuous aerobics,​ jogging,​ running or anything where you need to​ ​ bounce or jiggle. Guarded activity is​ ​ the​ key here.

For lower back pain,​ sitting is​ ​ the​ most painful. Sit on​ a ​ firm seat,​ not squashy cushions,​ and sit on​ your buttock bones. Do not loll back on​ the​ tailbone or lower spine. Wedge a ​ rolled towel or small cushion behind your back to​ ​ keep you upright. Sit as often as possible in​ ​ the​ Diamond Posture (Figure 1) in​ ​ order to​ ​ benefit the​ sciatic nerve and to​ ​ cure a ​ convex or a ​ lateral curvature of ​ the​ spine.

When the​ pain is​ ​ acute and you can neither sit nor stand in​ ​ comfort,​ rest in​ ​ bed,​ take whatever anti-inflammatory or analgesic medications your physician prescribes,​ and wait until the​ pain is​ ​ milder before starting on​ these postures.

All these asanas have healing and curative properties. They will act as a ​ form of ​ mild traction,​ gently stretching the​ spinal muscles in​ ​ safe extension postures. Strength will be gradually built up in​ ​ the​ paraspinal muscles and buttocks,​ abdominal organs will be toned and strengthened,​ and pressure points all along the​ spine will be stimulated. Practice each asana to​ ​ the​ point where mild pain is​ ​ felt.
