Yoga Can Soothe the Aches and Pains of Fibromyalgia

Practicing yoga can relieve 30 percent of the symptoms of fibromyalgia. This is about the same amount of symptom relief as medication.

Fibromyalgia is characterized by widespread pain in muscles and fatigue. Yoga has been demonstrated to improve chronic pain and other disease symptoms, for illnesses ranging from arthritis to cancer.

According to Live Science:

“[R]esearchers found 77.3 percent of the participants were ‘at least a little better’ as a result of the yoga, compared with 19.2 percent of the control group on standard therapy. In particular, half of those who had done yoga reported a 30 percent reduction in pain.”
