Chronic Injury and Yoga Rehabilitation

By Sam Dworkis

Because many of us were brought up believing in the saying "no pain, no gain," most of us, at some time or another, will experience a yoga injury. After all, when we were in school, our coaches and peers encouraged, and often demanded, that we give our athletic pursuits our very best effort, even when injured.

Many of us have transferred that concept right into our yoga practice. In addition, there are many approaches to yoga whose teachers encourage their students to "push their edges."

Yet, even if we practice non aggressive yoga, it is normal that muscle soreness will follow; for it is simply the natural breaking down of muscle tissue and its rebuilding that promotes strength and flexibility, and enhances performance.

To begin and stay motivated in your yoga practice, it is essential that you understand the method how yoga works upon you along with a progressive yoga schedule. A unique self-learning course helps you do that quite remarkably. Evaluate this yoga for beginners course.

 

Injuries are supposed to be painful, because pain is the body's way of telling you there is a problem that needs to be addressed. Ignoring this message often creates chronic injury, which becomes more common as we age. Trying to work through pain often exacerbates what might have been a minor injury and often creates additional unwanted fascia adhesions (scarring) along with stressed and atrophied soft tissue.

When chronically injured, many structures away from a primary injury also become affected; including surrounding muscles, tendons, ligaments, joint capsules, and especially, the fascia, which when chronically contracted, becomes a primary cause of chronic overall pain, weakness, and loss of flexibility.

 

For practicing complete yoga - including gentle yoga exercises, meditation and relaxation postures, we recommend the handwoven yoga mats. For dynamic yoga postures, you may like to go in for the sticky mats. Understand your needs by visiting the yoga mats section.

 

When applied to the healing process, yoga therapy is a non-painful and an extremely effective rehabilitative tool. When appropriately practiced, it works on the level of fascia, which serves to rebuild strength and endurance, and to restore and maintain flexibility; both during and after the therapeutic process.
