R. Rajesh Kumar [9] | Dr. S. Natarajan [2]

Abstract: Yoga therapy can complement traditional medical treatments for various health conditions, such as chronic pain, cardiovascular diseases, respiratory disorders, and musculoskeletal issues. The objectives of the study concerning the effect of selected Yogasana on Pain and trunk flexibility of patients with chronic lower back pain. To achieve this research goal, forty men experiencing low back pain in Puducherry, ranging in age from 35 to 55 years, were randomly selected as study participants. The participants were randomly divided into two groups, each consisting of twenty individuals. Group I received training in asanas, while Group II served as the control group. Group I engaged in their respective training programs for five days per week over eight weeks, while Group II, the control group, did not undergo any specialized training beyond their regular routines. The researcher obtained approval and cooperation from various healthcare facilities and factories in Puducherry, making it the chosen location for the study. The data associated with these variables were subjected to statistical analysis using one - way univariate analysis of variance (ANOVA) for each variable separately. This analysis was performed whenever the 'F' ratio of the adjusted post - test results was found to be statistically significant. The study group showed a substantial reduction in pain levels and increased range of motion after an eight - week yogasana intervention. Based on these results, it may be concluded that yogasana can help lower pain levels and improve flexibility.
