YogaDownload and pain relief expert, Dr. Tracy Jackson, have partnered together to provide 10 classes that encompass some of the techniques proven to help relieve chronic pain. These yoga classes are accessible even to those who have limited mobility from chronic pain. This program has the power to support you in healing, increasing your quality of life, and how you feel in your body.
An extensive review of the all the available scientific literature on yoga and summary for publication in a peer-reviewed journal, by program contributor, Dr. Tracy Jackson has discovered promising findings on the benefits of yoga for those suffering with any form of chronic pain. The short summary: Although significant flaws in the methods used to study yoga currently exist, and barriers to access are real (especially for minorities, the poor, the less educated, and males), the data supports the inclusion of yoga in the treatment of most types of chronic pain. The exact type, “dose," and composition of the ideal yoga intervention remain to be determined.
However, compelling neurobiological and clinical evidence suggests most any type of yoga (coupling movement and breath work) will result in improvement in physiologic markers of pain and inflammation, reduction in disability, and improvement in sleep, mood, and quality of life.
Most reported “yoga interventions” in the literature report significant results after 8-12 weeks of consistent practice, totaling around 60-75 minutes one of two times per week; however, how you combine the practices, and the frequency with which you do them is entirely up to you! Most research participants choose to continue after 12 weeks, and even increase the frequency of practice, given how much better they feel….so the results continue to grow and build over time as our bodies and brains change.
Whether you are suffering from back pain, want to create positive emotional breakthroughs in managing your condition, or are ready to explore lifestyle changes that can help your body heal, this program will help you take the first steps in a positive direction. Connect with your body and breath in these yoga and meditation classes, designed for this program. Give your body some love, support, and healing with this program.
Message from expert Dr. Tracy Jackson: I am a doctor, triple boarded in anesthesiology, chronic pain and addiction medicine, and previously on faculty at Vanderbilt University and the Osher Center for Integrative Medicine. I became increasingly frustrated that pills and procedures were inadequate and sometimes harmful to those seeking care for chronic pain. I learned nothing about yoga or other integrative approaches in training, so I eventually became a RYT-200 yoga instructor, got additional certification in medical acupuncture, am becoming a certified health coach, and now am working outside of the system to create more effective, accessible and affordable holistic options for treatment of pain and addiction.
Also remember, there is no right or wrong way to incorporate yoga: A big part of yoga is learning to accept our body, mind, and spirit - in any given moment - and continue to move and breathe with some kindness and grace for ourselves. There is no magic pose or technique that is better than any other: If something doesn’t feel good to you, honor your body’s signals and skip that pose or practice. If you have any concerns, you are encouraged to seek out a yoga instructor or other medical professional for more personalized care.
