The International Association of Yoga Therapists has recently published a White Paper, entitled “Yoga Therapy and Pain-How Yoga Therapy Serves in Comprehensive Integrative Pain Management, and How It Can Do More”
As a White Paper this is not original research per se, but a discussion on how Yoga Therapy can assist in Chronic Pain, as part of a wider Integrative Medicine agenda.
If you have an interest in Chronic Pain – pain which persists – as a service user, Medical Practitioner, or Complimentary / Alternative / Integrative Health Practitioner, then the paper is worth a read. It is written from an American perspective, but the thoughts translate to the UK.
I’ve appended the summary, with permission of the authors, and if any one would like sight of the full paper, it is here on ResearchGateIAYT_Pain_White_Paper_ExecSummary_final
