Health & Wellbeing Promotional Self-Management

Back discomfort is a common problem.  Now there is an innovative evidence-based way to improve back health and function.  The 'YOGA for Healthy Lower Backs' programme gently and progressively aims to help people get back to being more active again.  

The Research that Used this Specific Yoga

The University of York (Department of Health Sciences, York Trials Unit) ran one of the largest yoga research studies, funded by Arthritis Research UK.  Teachers from  the Iyengar Yoga Association (UK) and the British Wheel of Yoga designed and ran specialised 12-week courses in five areas of the UK.  The positive results showing it to be safe and effective were published in the 'Annals of Internal Medicine' ('Yoga for Chronic Low Back Pain: A Randomized Trial' H Tilbrook, et al, Nov 1st 2011).  The Cost Evaluation in the Journal 'Spine' (LH Chuang, Aug 15th 2012) showed it to be cost-effective for the NHS, society and the workplace.  A social enterprise has been set up to allow more people to benefit from the same yoga programme used in the randomised controlled trial.
