The aftermath of a personal injury can be a daunting, stressful and traumatic time. Whether it was an accident at work, a road traffic accident or injuries caused by slips, trips and falls, the most important thing is making a full recovery.
One significant aid to recovery and recuperation is the ancient art of yoga. Just ask Ryan Giggs. Regular yoga sessions solved the Manchester United legend’s previously notorious hamstring problems and have enabled him to continue playing football at the highest level into his forties.
Depending on the nature of your personal injury, yoga can be enormously beneficial to your recovery. Furthermore, the continued use of yoga can go a long way to preventing similar issues surfacing again.
Given the example of Ryan Giggs, it’s unsurprising to learn that sports is one of the main industries that relies on yoga to aid recovery from workplace injuries.
Not only does yoga help muscular injuries heal by bringing back the range of motion and rebuilding the strength, it also increases the flexibility and adaptability of muscles which helps prevents similar work injuries occurring repeatedly.
However, it is not just sportspeople who enjoy the healing capabilities of yoga. In fact, professionals from all walks of life can enjoy the benefits.
Work-related repetitive strain injuries (RSI) can also be soothed by regular yoga sessions. Concert musicians, for example, can use yoga stretches to heal and strengthen muscles and tendons used in the wrist during playing which can become swollen and painful.
Practising yoga can also have an enormously positive effect on a person’s mental state. The controlled breathing, the gentle movements and sensations of pure relaxation all help to put the mind at ease and let go of the often considerable pressures at work.
This element of yoga can help people recover from stress-related illnesses at work. Whether it’s a case of using the sessions themselves to relax or taking the mindset into the working environment, yoga can help both prevent and heal damage from stress.
