Each year, around 50 percent of adults develop a muscular or skeletal injury that lasts them around 8 months. Physical therapy is the typical solution to these problems, but is very costly and time consuming for the patient. Therapy processes usually include working with a trainer on various machines and work out equipment, and going through various stretches and exercises over the course of a few months.
Hot yoga uses a tried and true method of yoga, that combined with the intense (110) degree heat, allows an individual to stretch far beyond their comfort zone and what they think they are capable of. This would be an effective alternative or addition to physical therapy, especially later in the recovery process, after the initial period of healing. Hot yoga helps to slow and sometimes reverse the process of bone loss which can take place during recovery when the injury is still healing. This form of yoga, designed specifically for the healing process after an injury, uses stretches that benefit the whole body, and will help regain muscle control and bone density throughout the process.
