Bilateral sacroiliitis and Chronic Low back pain

A 28 years female came with complain of back pain and bilateral sacroiliitis since four months. Sacroiliitis is an inflammation of one or both of your sacroiliac joints — the places where your lower spine and pelvis connect. Sacroiliitis can cause pain in your buttocks or lower back and may even extend down one or both legs.

Degenerative arthritis changes were seen within bilateral sacroiliac joints. However, no significant abnormality was noted in hip joints. A three phase bone scan revealed an increase in osteoblastic activity in the bilateral sacroiliac joint. The diagnosis was sacroilitis.

Treatment: During her three-week-long stay at Arogyadhama, she underwent yoga practices based on Integrated Approach to Yoga Therapy which comprised a special yoga module designed specifically for her condition.

These activities included special techniques (asanas, loosening exercises and relaxation techniques) designed to reduce pain. In order to enhance her relaxation and calmness special meditation techniques were administered (cyclic meditation, trataka and mind sound resonance technique). Manomaya Kosha and Vignanmaya Kosha were particularly helpful to her.
