Yoga is one of the most preferred and used forms of complementary medicine.
A survey conducted by the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Medicine (NCCIM) found that yoga is one of the most preferred and used forms of complementary medicine.
According to NCCIM, people who are suffering from back pain and depression are only using Yoga Therapy for conventional care. Several studies indicate the benefits of yoga, the centuries-old mind-body practice, on a wide range of health-related conditions—particularly mental health, stress, and pain management.
Therapeutic yoga has led to the development of a new form of yoga. In therapeutic yoga, traditional yoga postures are used to treat chronic health conditions. Practitioners receive additional training in anatomy, psychology, physiology, and other medically related topics.
The most common problems yoga therapists see are back and neck pain, anxiety, joint pain and hypertension, and stiffness.
