Dr. Warner Promotes Yoga in Orthopedics
Dr. Meredith Warner, Baton Rouge Orthopedic Surgeon, discusses yoga in orthopedics.
00:14 Yoga has been around for about 5000 years and is one of the most effective ways to treat musculoskeletal pain and problems that I have found to date. There’s an abundant amount of research that makes yoga a valid treatment plan. It seems odd that a Western medicine physician such as myself would be recommending something that’s a little bit more Eastern, but yoga really works.
00:37 Unites States Military has actually instituted a yoga program for its soldiers in order to help with weight loss, improve strength, improve endurance, and improve flexibility. The National Institutes of Health have commissioned multiple studies that prove how yoga helps in chronic diseases such as diabetes and heart disease, and in multiple musculoskeletal problems such as chronic neck and back pain, or even acute muscle tears, or acute shoulder injuries from sports injuries.
01:05 Warner Orthopedics & Wellness has partnered with Yoga Bliss to create a variety of medical programs depending on your diagnosis and your abilities to allow each of our patients, or my patients, to use yoga to improve their lives. You can become stronger, you can become have more endurance, you can sleep better, you can use fewer pain medications, and you can do more just by increasing your flexibility and strength with a time tested method.
01:32 You don’t have to be a contortionist, you can start in a chair, you can even start sitting on the side of the side. We’ve created a variety of programs depending on your ability level, but yoga really does work for musculoskeletal pain and problems.
