What to consider when recommending yoga to patients

“Yoga therapy differs from contemporary yoga in that the profession has a defined scope of practice based on educational standards and accreditation requirements for training schools and yoga therapists. In dealing with pain conditions, certified yoga therapists possess understanding and knowledge of pain theories and pain physiology and may collaborate with a patient’s health care team to develop an individualized care plan. While pain and musculoskeletal conditions represent the most common reasons for referral, yoga therapists may also see clients with chronic conditions, such as diabetes, heart disease, post-traumatic stress disorder, and addiction.”

Jaime Lewis is an internal medicine and palliative care physician.

She shares her story and discusses her KevinMD article, “Recommending yoga to your patients? Consider this first.” (https://www.kevinmd.com/blog/2021/02/recommending-yoga-to-your-patients-consider-this-first.html)
