Yoga participated may benefit to individuals with osteoporosis by reducing complications of fractures, some studies suggested.
Osteoporosis is a Musculoskeletal disorder (MSDs) medical condition, characterized by decreased bone density.
The exact causes of osteoporosis are unknown. Neither researchers understood that people with the same health conditions are affected by the imbalance between new bone formation and bone resorption while others do not.
However, researchers do know that certain risk factors such as a lid to increase lifelong calcium-deficient diet, age, female, family history,.... bone structure and overweight are associated with the early onset of osteoporosis.
Furthermore, long-term intake of certain medications such as prednisone and a medical condition such as rheumatoid arthritis are also the osteoporosis prevalent risk factors
According to the statistic, 1 in 3 women and 1 in 5 men older than 50 will suffer from an osteoporosis fracture, worldwide.
Yoga, the ancient practice for harmonized external and internal body well being, through breath control, meditation, bodily movement, and gesture..... has been well known to people the in Western world and some parts in Asia.
Some yoga health benefits were reported by various respectable institutes' research and supported by health advocates.
In the review of the literature published in PubMed, Medline, and Cochrane databases between 1966 and 2011 about topics related to osteoporosis and spinal movement. researchers found that
*Yoga, as a moderate form of exercise showed to strengthen the muscles supporting the spinal column, promote balance, improve posture, and enhance the quality of life.
* Yoga attendees may also benefit from varied spinal movement in preserving the health and strength of the vertebral bodies.
* Yoga exercise modified by experts may be helpful in reduced risk fracture depending on the risk of vertebral fractures of attendees
After adjusting to other risk factors, Dr, Smith EN the led author said, "Yoga therapists are cautioned to not apply a one-size-fits-all approach when working with this population".
Furthermore, the study also concerned that more studies are needed to further evaluate yoga poses presence which provides the least risk and greatest benefit to individuals with osteoporosis.
Physically, yoga postures and exercise exert a significant effect on stimulating bone metabolism and enhance physical function. the impact of moderate exercises is recognized as beneficial for the stimulation of bone tissue, muscle strength, type of muscle contraction associated with changes in bone metabolism.
Additionally, in the support of the above differentiation, researchers at the Istanbul University conducted a review of literature posted in databases with 26 postmenopausal osteoporotic women over 55 years of age satisfied the criteria selected found that* Yoga may be used as a form of exercise in the field of osteoporosis rehabilitation.
* Yoga lessons expressed a positive influence on balance, posture, flexibility, and life quality.
* Yoga education has a positive effect on pain, physical functions, social functions, generally, particularly in post postmenopausal osteoporotic women.
However, according to the reports from the Mayo Clinic in the examine 3 patients with osteopenia, but in good health and pain-free, and started yoga exercises to improve their musculoskeletal health, researchers warned, yoga class without tailoring to individual students needed may induce pain and complications with some flexion yoga positions in the patients with osteopenia of that can lead to concern that fracture risk and increased even further in osteoporosis.
Dr. Sinaki M, said, "Although exercise has been shown to be effective for improving bone mineral density and decreasing fracture risk, our subjects had the development of VCFs and neck and back pain with yoga exercises. This finding suggests that factors other than bone mass should be considered for exercise counseling in patients with bone loss. The increased torque pressure applied to vertebral bodies during SFEs may be a risk".
Furthermore, the study also advises that even though yoga exercise prescribed for patients with vertebral bone loss, is effective and important for the treatment of osteopenia and osteoporosis but instructors should need to know some positions can contribute to extreme state ain on spines with bone loss.
Taking all together, yoga may be considered as an integrated form of exercise in all ages, but in the older population with osteoporosis, yoga instructors should select an applicable lesson that provides the least risk and greatest benefit to individuals with osteoporosis.
