Introduction to Yoga for Back
The motivation behind creating this website is the cure that I found for my back pain.
This is my personal experience and please do not expect any medical jargon. The survey
says that around 13 million people in USA alone suffer from back pain and many more around
the world and they spend billions of dollars every year. The objective is to cure those people
who had severe back pain. This is an attempt to share the knowledge with others to solve this pandemic issue.
I was suffering from lower back pain from 2003 and seen more than 6 doctors, 3 MRI’s, 3 physical
therapy sessions, two Chiroprators and one of them even suggested for a surgery. They took all
kind of X-Ray’s, MRI’s etc etc. And more than this pain, I have to research, consult with friends
to find the “best” doctor who can cure my illness. To be frank nothing worked for me. My back pain
improved only 20% since 2003 after going through all kind of exercises.
In the beginning I cannot walk for more than 1 hour, I cannot run, I cannot sit in front of computer
for more than an hour, tingling pain, occasional pain when climbing steps. More than anything, my
back pain was always running in my mind, consciousness about the lower back all the time.
Pranayama: Yoga has been practiced in India for more than 5000 years. Pranayama is rhythmic
breath control. It is also used in preparation for meditation, and in asana, the practice of postures,
to help maximize the benefits of the practice, and focus the mind. The Pranayama in combination with
back exercises gives better result as in many cases. Yoga has been used for thousands of years to
promote health and prevent disease, and many people with back problems have found yoga to provide
several benefits, including:
- Relieving back pain
- Increasing strength and flexibility
- Feel refreshed
- Diabetes is controlled
- Asthma gets
better with Pranayama
- Blood pressure controlled
- Relieving heart burn
In years, researchers have become interested in studying the effects of yoga on treating disease,
and studies are encouraging that yoga can be a useful part of the treatment plan for many medical
conditions as varied as heart disease, asthma, addiction, neck and back problems. Pranayama is a
breathing technique taking energy to all the parts of the body cells. It is better to practice
Pranayama early in the morning. A preferred place for practicing yoga is a well ventilated room.
Slow and steady gives more effect in Yoga. For every position we have to do 7
We can do Pranayama for 5 times a week and the significant effect could be seen after a period of 90
to 120 days.
Now, I am continuing my exercises and Pranayama and feel very good now. I am happy to say that
finally I found a solution for my back pain. Now, I am playing racquet ball, doing my strength
training twice a week and Pranayama for 5 times a week, I can stand and walk for more than 4 hours
continuously without pain. The combination of back exercise and Pranayama worked for me! I can say
70% cure in 3 months. I found much improvement for my back pain, neck & shoulder pain, heart burn
and feel refreshed. 3 steps and three months, your back pain is cured to a great extent.
“Learn as a teacher and not as a student”. The objective of the program is to train the students
as a teacher and the teacher then train other students as a teacher. This way we can learn and perfect
ourselves when we teach other students and also continue to do our exercise while earning some income.
