YogaFit for Chronic Pain

The 2017 GSK Global Pain Index shows that pain affects almost everyone. This hampers our ability to live and work longer and lead a holistic life. Professor Eric Finkelstein, Health Services Research Program, Duke-NUS Graduate Medical School, commented, “Everyday pain has a significant emotional and economic impact on people’s lives and the economy. The survey uncovers that pain conditions are estimated to be costing the Southeast Asian economies, USD 44.6 billion in productivity losses. In Singapore, the productivity losses are estimated at USD 6.2 billion (SGD 8.4 billion) annually.”

  • 85% of Singaporeans have suffered from head and body pain, with nearly half (42%) suffering weekly from body pain
  • 1 in 2 suffer in silence, more commonly men (61%) than women (46%); one-third delay pain relief by weeks or even longer
  • 6 in 10 parents believe that pain makes it harder for them to listen and help their children with everyday tasks

Research suggest that practicing yoga has the opposite effect on the brain as does chronic pain.

Catherine Bushnell, PhD, Scientific Director of the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH) at the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH)

Asanas stabilize the autonomic nervous system – Studies done in regular practitioners show a decrease in cortisol and cholinesterase levels, which reflect quietening of the stress response.
