Title: Is therapeutic yoga helpful for chronic low back pain?
Author: Pierce, Surya J.; Rakel, David
Date: 2010
Publisher: Family Physicians Inquiries Network
Citation: Evidence Based Practice 13(8): 04.
Abstract: Therapeutic yoga may be helpful for patients with chronic low back pain (CLBP). This suggestion is based on 3 small RCTs that indicated benefits both in terms of functional improvement and pain relief. However, not all yoga forms should be considered equivalent for treating CLBP, as these studies included only Iyengar yoga therapy and viniyoga.
