Meditation and Yoga for Chronic Pain Management

Meditation and Yoga for Chronic Pain ManagementNeed to manage chronic pain? Recent studies have shown that yoga is a valuable component of a chronic pain management plan. Cytokines, markers in the body that indicate inflammation, have been found to decrease after people do exercises like yoga. Yoga also helps you become more aware of your body, which can help reduce pain.

I found this outstanding video on the problem of chronic pain. Give it a watch – it’s only 5 minutes, and I think you’ll find it entertaining as well as informative.
