Yoga is considered to be a safe method of pain management for those who are in significant lower back pain. According to a study by the Archives of Internal Medicine, taking 12 weeks of weekly yoga classes not only improved overall back function but it also reduced symptoms for suffers of chronic lower back pain. Those who participated in the study even reported that they required less medication to relieve the effects of their back pain. So why not try yoga for lower back pain yourself.
