Anyone who struggles with back pain knows how distressing it can be. Whether it’s soreness that impedes Your Sleep or aches that hurt your productivity while you sit at your desk at work, back pain is hard to ignore no matter what position you’re in.
The good news? Yoga can be a surprisingly helpful remedy. In this video, yoga expert and Retox author Lauren Imparato takes you through a 20-minute yoga flow designed to soothe and prevent back pain. Yes, please!
“How you sit, how you sleep, something you ate, how you moved,” can all contribute to upper or lower back issues, Imparato explains. And while treatment options do exist—such as massage and acupuncture—studies have shown that yoga may actually be more effective than these and other alternatives. Research from the Annals of Internal Medicine found that people with chronic lower back pain saw more improvement of their symptoms after a 12-week yoga class compared to those who only received medicine or physical therapy to treat their pain.
