For those with chronic low back pain, several studies suggest yoga as an effective treatment among other benefits such as improved mood, stress reduction, and lower healthcare costs. With low back pain as the most common cause of pain in the United States and back injury as the leading and most expensive cause of workers’ compensation claims (Boston Medical Center) it’s no wonder yoga has become a saving grace for some as a cost effective alternative to other treatment.
