There are a lot of people in the world who experience chronic pain in their lives. Yoga has shown some promise as being used to treat some types of chronic pain.

The researchers discovered that the Yoga actually reduced the patient’s pain better than the self-administered exercise routine. Additionally, researchers at UCLA also studied the effects of Yoga on patients who suffered from rheumatoid arthritis, six weeks later the patients reported vast improvement in not only their pain, but also a decrease in their anxiety and depression.
