We love Child's Pose because it's a simple way to calm your mind, slow your breath, and restore a feeling of peace and safety. As with all stretches, please work within your own range of limits and abilities.
Enjoy the feeling of serenity you've just achieved!
According to the American College of Physicians (ACP), new guidelines suggest drugs should be the last line of treatment for low back pain. Instead, the ACP now recommends heat therapy, yoga and spinal manipulation ahead of pain meds for low back pain. These techniques can speed up the healing process by "relax(ing) the muscles, joints, and tendons so people can be relieved of their low back pain sooner, rather than later." says ACP president, Dr. Nitin Damle.
The guidelines were published online Feb. 13, 2017, in the Annals of Internal Medicine.
