Can I do yoga with a hernia in the cervical spine
Tatiana, thank you very much for the complex for beginners! Is it posible to make full use of with a hernia (protrusion) of the disk in the cervical vertebrae, are there any restrictions? “sincerely, Larisa”.
Good day, Larisa! Thank you very much for Your questions. First, I note that You are absolutely right that carefully and cautiously approach the exercises.
Problems in the cervical spine, you need to come to the practice with special attention, but to give up exercise is not recommended. On the contrary, the herniated disc of the cervical spine is an indication for
performance of a complex therapeutic yoga or physical therapy.
The complex is suitable for beginners to do this (the only exception is the pose Ardha Chakrasana (half bridge Pose), you need to skip).
However, when performing complex, you must follow some important rules:
Not to proceed with the development of the complex in acute pain.
All of the exercises to perform very smoothly, starting with a small amplitude.
If you experience discomfort (pain) to immediately stop the exercise.
If the complex is neat and, if necesary, under the supervision of a physician, You will definitely feel the results!
If You’ll master other systems of yoga, I recommend You to refrain from yoga poses such as:
Ardha Chakrasana (half bridge Pose)
Halasana (plough Pose)
Salamba Sarvangasana (shoulderstand)
Be especially careful when performing poses such as:
Bhujangasana (Cobra Pose)
Ustrasana (camel Pose)
Urdhva of much Svanasana (Pose the dog’s muzzle up) – not sapacitabine head back, but rather pull back of the neck
Wish You succes in your practice!
