Hi all,

I met with an accident last month in which i sustained injury in spine. The cervical vertebra got dislocated. The doctor has advised surgery.

I am really new to YOGA and hardly know a thing or two about it. Please could anyone tell me could yoga help me to cure the same. How should i start with the treatment?

For any Tips you need to post first which vertebra got dislocated though it seems to be difficult to treat it via a forum.

It might be better to look for a qualified Yoga Teacher in your area.

All the best

I am not a doctor, but my advice is purely from a yoga pov. Since you have never done yoga before and this injury is very new, I would recommend that you first go the medical route to correct the issue. If you don't want to do the operation, try get a second opinion from another doctor, perhaps a homeopath or a doctor who may suggest non-invasive ways to correct your injury. The cervical vertebra is so important that we cannot take risks with it.

Starting to do yoga now (as a total beginner) and without the guidance of a teacher might actually aggrevate your injury. When you seek a yoga teacher, seek somebody who is also a therapist who will understand the injury and what to do. When your injury is corrected and healed, perhps then you can consider yoga to help with the strenghtening of your muscles.
