What is Local Yoga Instructors

If you have a chronic orthopedic condition such as arthritis, or if you’ve undergone orthopedic surgery, yoga my be an option for you. A local yoga teacher is a wellness provider who improves people’s balance, strength and flexibility. 

Your local yoga teacher can show you how to various yoga poses, along with breathing exercises. No matter what your condition, there is a type of yoga that works for you. There are many different types of yoga, including Hatha, Bikram, Kundalini, power and more. 

The Benefits of Yoga for Orthopedic Conditions

Orthopedic conditions may be caused by overuse, chronic pain, genetics, or a sudden injury, like a broken bone or a dislocated hip. Many patients can benefit from doing yoga. For example, if you have rheumatoid arthritis, doing yoga stretches may reduce joint pain and improve flexibility. If you’ve recently had orthopedic surgery such as a hip or knee replacement, yoga may help you reduce recovery time and gain strength more quickly. 

Many orthopedic injuries can be treated by an orthopedic surgeon with advice from your family physician. In addition to physical benefits, yoga also has mental health benefits. For example, you may be able to reduce anxiety and depression. Yoga may also be able to improve insomnia symptoms

If you have arthritis or are recovering from an orthopedic surgery such as a knee replacement and are interested in doing yoga, get started by talking to your local family physician. Your family doctor can help you choose an effective and safe type of exercise to benefit your arthritis.
