As treatment, usually surgery or physiotherapyare recommended, but they are expensive and may cause side effects. Apracticalcourse of treatment without negative side effects and with permanent positive effects is lacking. Objective: To suggest a practical course of treatment, introduced by a licensed Yoga coach who is experienced in this field, and through thatto shed a light on yoga as treatment for MSD. The hypothesis is that yoga may decrease the pain among individuals with MSD. Methods: This hypothesis is presented based on the practical techniques used in Yoga including body relaxation and breathing awareness (2 minutes & 3 minutes respectively), warm up/stretches (20 minutes), balancing & strength, full relaxation and refresh.This training exercise is suggested to be done in the morning, 2-3 times a week for 8-10 weeks. There is no age nor gender limitation. Result: It is hypothesized that 1 hour of Yoga exercise can be useful in decreasing the symptoms of MSD by increasing the flexibility of muscles and range of motion in joints.
