Yoga too much can make you feel better, but you can get injured or injured.
About two-thirds of yoga respondents in recent survey on yoga complained of back pain and neck pain.
In fact, 21% of respondents said yoga had exacerbated muscle and joint pain, and 11% had caused new pain in the hands, wrists, elbows and shoulders.
The study only focused on general pain in other parts of the body. Tom Swain, a researcher at the University of Alabama's Birmingham campus, said he could not determine how serious the pain was.
Apart from the study, Swain said, "I thought that the pain caused by yoga was not just due to a real injury, but simply to muscle aches."
"Perhaps some of the yoga poses cause sweat on the hands, and the joints are extremely diverse, causing pain. If you continue to go beyond the range of joint motion, you will eventually be injured. "
A team of Swain researchers who have been studying serious yoga injuries found that about 30,000 Americans visited the emergency room in 2001-2004 due to increased joints or severe muscle strain and fracture, and that number continues to increase .
"Yoga is a risk of injury, but people should not stop yoga," Swain said. Because there are many potential advantages. "
"In fact, yoga is associated with improved health, such as lowering blood pressure, cholesterol, heart rate, and even depression and sleep problems," he added.
Experts advised, "You always have to listen to your body because it is not right to say that you can not get any benefit without suffering."
The findings were published in the journal International Journal of Bodywork and Movement Therapies.
