About this Project:
Yoga Therapy for Pain Patients from Queen Elizabeth Hospital at Anahata Yoga
Queen Elizabeth Hospital Patient Resource Centre (QEH PRC) was established in 1993. Providing disease-related information and continuous support services to its chronic patients and care-givers, to enhance their ability to manage the disease, and to facilitate the mutual help and support network during their rehabilitation journey.
An article from Harvard Health Journal in April 2015 reported that yoga helps pain relieve. Yoga can help people with arthritis, fibromyalgia, migraine, low back pain and many other types of chronic pain conditions. A study published in Annals of Internal Medicine found that among 313 people with chronic low back pain, a weekly yoga class increased mobility more than standard medical care for the condition. Another study published at nearly the same time found that yoga was comparable to standard exercise therapy in relieving chronic low back pain.
Andiappan Yoga Community partners QEH PRC offering free yoga therapy class to their pain patients. A therapeutic sequence of gentle yoga poses and breathing techniques will be taught in this class. Aiming to help pain patients relieving chronic pain and increasing mobility.
「哈佛健康雜誌 」於2015年4月的期刊內曾刊登一篇有關瑜伽有助舒緩痛楚的文章，報道指瑜伽有助減輕關節痛、纖維肌痛、偏頭痛、腰背痛及其他慢性痛症等情況。「Annals of Internal Medicine」在313名慢性腰背痛患者參與的一項研究中發現，每週一次的瑜伽練習較標準醫療護理更有效提高患者的活動能力，於同期發表的另一項研究亦發現，瑜伽對舒緩慢性腰背痛與標準運動療程的效果相若。
Andiappan Yoga Community 與伊利沙伯醫院病人資源中心合作，為痛症患者提供免費瑜伽治療課程。課程將教授系列治療性的瑜伽色子和呼吸技巧，藉此幫助痛症病患舒緩痛楚及提升活動能力。
