Yoga For Spinal Cord Strength And Lower Back Pain

Salabhasana or grasshoper yoga pose can enhance spinal cord strength and gives relief from lower back pain

Well, who doesn’t want a healthy life?

If want, proper steps have to be taken. Diet and exercise are the two key essentials for a balanced healthy life. Exercise helps in keeping both mind and body healthy where as proper diet supplements it.

Yoga works as the best medicine in healing all health problems. If there is some problem in spinal cord, its not even possible to take breath. This is from my personal experience. After my spinal cord fracture, I faced severe trouble in taking breaths. Yoga has become my close friend that it takes care of my health.
