Yoga Therapeutics for Managing Low Back PainTweet
Learn how therapeutic yoga principles may be integrated into treatment for patients who experience a variety of low back pain diagnoses. Explore how to apply the eight-limb path of yoga and a biopsychosocial model of treatment into your sessions. Learn how therapeutic yoga benefits the recovery process, and will enhance your healthcare practice when working with clients with low back pain.
Participants will receive instruction on how their patient’s yoga practice may affect their injury and impairments. We will address physiological benefits, safety and contraindications of postures and techniques. Participants will learn how to integrate simple yoga principles such as breath work, meditation, yoga postures and guided relaxation into treatment sessions to improve outcomes in a variety of treatment settings. We will explore developing therapeutic yoga programs for patients with:
- Chronic non-specific low back pain
- Lumbopelvic instability
- Lumbar Disc Herniations with Radiculopathy
- Spinal Stenosis
- Facet Arthropathy
