We strongly recommend yoga as a beneficial fitness and relaxation
technique, especially for people in sedentary jobs.
However, some precautions should be observed in the use of yoga
as a treatment modality for Musculoskeletal Disorders:
- We do not recommend aggressive stretching in the acute stage
of RSI, in the presence of active Myofascial Trigger Points or
nerve entrapment. We only recommend relaxation techniques and
breathing exercises initially and introduce other aspects of yoga
at an appropriate stage in the rehabilitation.
- It is necessary to individualise the asanas in people with
complex musculoskeletal disorders and group sessions may sometimes
- Several asanas need to be modified or avoided in RSI. This
is possible only if the yoga therapist works in a multi-disciplinary
medical team in a holistic environment.
We have seen numerous clients suffer severe flare-ups of RSI
on starting Yoga prematurely or in a mixed group situation, even
in reputed Yoga Institutes. We do not subscribe to the popular
and simplistic view that practising Pranayama alone can cure all
