Chronic pain is a serious public health issue affecting an estimated half of UK population. To combat chronic pain during the COVID-19 epidemic, multidisciplinary self management program was implemented by Aarogyam (UK) with the support provided by HM Government in partnership with National Lottery Funds.
A small-scale retrospective analysis was conducted on the program impact. A total of 49 participants aged 34 to 64 years who reported having chronic pain for at least 3-months were who completed the 6-weeks therapy program were analysed.
“ Chronic pain often goes hand-in-hand with anxiety and depression, we believe yoga therapy can be a feasible solution for people with chronic pain.
Aarogyam's Health and Well-being Project was supported by Coronavirus Relief grant provided by HM Government in partnership with National Lottery Funds. Project supported 228 participants over 3 months where 49 received participants received personalised 6- weeks of tele-yoga therapy sessions 30-45 minutes twice a week. Afterwards, techniques were self-practiced by the participants.
