All of these study statistics are reported in Yoga as Medicine: The Yogic prescription for Health and Healing – A Yoga Journal Book by Timothy McCall, M.D.

Back Pain:

98% of more than one thousand people with back pain found yoga helpful.

500 people who suffer from back pain were polled asking what worked for them. They had tried orthopedic surgeons, osteopaths, chiropractors, acupuncturists, Rolfers, Feldenkrais, use of muscle relaxants, anti-inflammatory drugs, hot packs, ice packs, shoe orthotics, TENS nerve stimulation units. Yoga was judged the most successful of all.

Working with a teacher had better results than books, articles and tapes.

Depression & Mood:

A 3 to 6 month practice of yoga improved functioning and moods of people with clinical depression.

In One study 60% also had improved sleep, improved digestions, mood and social interactions.

Osteo-arthritis & Osteoporosis:

In one small study, 8 Weeks of Yoga was adapted for Osteo arthritis of the knee. The study participants were all women, obese and over 50 none of whom had practiced yoga before. They attended 1 yoga class for 8 weeks with no home practice required. They reported 47% reduction in pain, 39% improvement in physical function, and 39% reduction in stiffness.
