Yoga and Physical therapy

Yoga is the practice of attaining physical and mental health through meditation and physical exercise. Yoga and Physical Therapy combines the principles and practices of yoga with physical therapies to achieve our desired outcomes. In a recent research study, the largest of its kind to date, Yoga proves to be more effective than traditional exercise science or an educational booklet for patients with chronic low back pain. In general, the practice of Yoga is associated with an individual who is "healthy," and "normal." Yoga thus is applied as more of a "preventive" practice rather than a "restorative" or "rehabilitative" one. Common physical therapy goals of enhancing strength, flexibility, balance, coordination, sequencing, motor control, kinesthetic senses, posture and alignment can be impacted with the judicious use of Yoga and certain yogic principles. It is quite clear that the art and science of Yoga could be an amazing and powerful tool that can be applied by physical therapists to help patients reach their goals, and to provide a lasting solution to many physical ailments. Used in conjunction with manual therapy, modalities and other physical therapy procedures, Yoga can be a "natural health fitness" in its various aspects, and may be applied in some or all of the rehab stages of a patient.  In addition, the feeling of well-being and other mental benefits are welcome "side effects" of this procedure.
