THE BENEFITS OF YOGA FOR THIS ISSUE (SYMPTOM CONTROL)
Yoga is beneficial as the breathing and stretching in yoga poses:
1. Increases circulation of blood flow and delivery of nutrients to muscle tissue (i.e. hamstrings)
2. Increases joint synovial fluid that lubricates the joints (between the hamstrings and pelvic bone and knees)
3. Increases flexibility of fascia, allowing for greater range of motion (increased mobility in the hips and knees)
4. Reduces the risk of injury and joint pain as a result of the aforementioned benefits
5. Improves mental and physical recovery
2. Lower back pain or injury
3. Torn hamstring tissue or previous injury
