Yoga back pain benefits

Yoga helps increase strength in very specific muscles and muscle groups.

Back and abdominal muscles are essential components of the muscular network of the spine, helping the body maintain proper upright posture and movement.

When these muscles are well conditioned, back pain can be greatly reduced or avoided.

Yoga can provide several healing benefits for people with various types of back pain.

For example, yoga can help by:

  • Healing injured back muscles
  • Speeding time to recover from an injury
  • Preventing re-injury
  • Helping maintain a regular level of daily activities and avoid disability

Among other things, yoga helps ease lower back pain by gently stretching and strengthening the muscles of the lower back and legs and increasing blood circulation, which in turn brings healing nutrients to the injured tissues.

Yoga for back pain between shoulder blades

Shoulder work is a foundation for nearly all hatha yoga poses.

Upper back pain commonly stems from the tendency to slump in the spine and round the shoulders.

As they tire, these weakened fibrous muscles go into spasm, creating hot, persistent pains along the edges of the shoulder blades and the sides of the neck.

Do you suffer from pain in between your shoulder blades and tightness in your upper back, neck and shoulders?

Hours on the bike with your arms permanently extended in front of you, combined with working at a desk and life stress, creates the perfect storm for soreness in the upper back, neck and shoulders.

And it’s nowhere near as much fun riding when you’re in constant pain.

What causes the pain?

Upper back pain is caused by poor posture, where overworked muscles tighten up and shorten and the opposing muscles lengthen and become weak.

When the upper back and shoulders are chronically hunched forward, the shoulder blades start to slide away from the spine.

This over-stretches and weakens the muscles that connect the spine to the shoulder blades, upper back (rhomboids and traps), neck (levator scapulae) and shoulders (deltoids).

Muscles spasm from the fatigued muscles cause pain along the edges of the shoulder blades and up the neck.
