According to the authors of a 1994 study published in the British Journal of
Rheumatology, 20 patients with rheumatoid arthritis, some with symptoms of
considerable severity, participated in a yoga program over a three-month period; had
greater handgrip strength compared to those who did not practice yoga; making
modifications of the routine to accommodate daily fluctuations in pain tolerance.
The same year, another study published in the Journal of Rheumatology reported that
arthritis sufferers who practiced yoga showed a significant improvement in pain,
tenderness, and finger range of motion for osteoarthritis of the hands. They had
noticed with a regular yoga practice patients gained greater mobility and joint range
of motion; allowing the muscle elasticity to not be compromised when the arthritis
flares up. Some experienced decreased discomfort and tightness in the muscles
with a reduction in inflammation.
I Feel, “The problem lies in our inactivity”…if we suffer with Arthritis and move our
limbs & joints our pain increases but when we don’t move them our condition
increases. Making it a vicious cycle…Yoga is not an immediate pain relief formula
for arthritis, but it is a proactive solution to fighting off the deterioration of your joints. If
you do nothing, you are just going to feel more and more pain with no end in sight.
Sure there will be days when you can't exercise, but in the long run, the potential
temporary relief you might feel, even if just for 15 minutes at a time, is certainly better
than the non-stop pain you will have to live with if you do absolutely nothing.
