I have been suffering from chronic back pain for last several years. Exploring different way of reducing the pain. Consulting with various experts to minimize the pain. what input I am getting in Yoga is the best way of reducing the pain , nothing else will work out. As my profession demands to sit for long duration in front of the desk, so I am not expecting to reduce the back pain. I am decided that I have to live with back pain.
Neck, back pains are related to spine. in medical terminology neck pain affecting the cervical spine is called Cervical spondylysis.This pain could spread over to both sides of shoulders, the back side of the next , the collar bone and the shoulders joins. In certain cases, the pain might be in both the arms and also in the arms joints.
Allopathic doctor recommends me most of the time to do pain killer medicines, heat compression and collar on the neck. It helps when pain is extreme. but for long term solution we have to do yoga.
Cause and cure
