Yoga Therapy for Herniated Discs

Yoga Therapy for Herniated Discs

6 Hours | 3 Sessions

With Montserrat G. Mukherjee C-IAYT

Yoga Therapy for Herniated Discs is a specialised training focused on a significant and frequently overlooked health problem that causes lower back pain (LBP). LBP is the primary cause of disability and sick leave among middle-aged individuals. Despite its impact, LBP often receives less attention than other major health concerns.

Yoga Therapy has gained recognition as one of the most effective treatments for LBP. However, many Yoga Therapists and teachers are hesitant to use it specifically for Herniated Discs, as there is a risk of exacerbating the condition. Fortunately, with careful adaptation, yoga can be safely and effectively utilised at all stages of Herniated Disc, providing relief from pain and promoting back health.

This Specialized Training is essential for learning how to harness the tools of Yoga Therapy specifically for individuals dealing with LBP and Herniated Discs. It is grounded in the scientific research of Dr. Robin Monro, who has extensively studied the relationship between structural back pain, yoga, and effective treatment methods.

Join us for this important course, where Montserrat G. Mukherjee (C-IAYT) will delve into the Yoga Therapy assessment procedure and approach to LBP and Herniated Discs. This training will provide a solid foundation for applying Yoga Therapy techniques to support individuals suffering from LBP and Herniated Discs.
