What is place of yoga in the reduction of pain from arthritis and inflammation in hip joint?

There are many different forms of arthritis, over a hundred in fact, and yoga will be more or less beneficial depending on the type.

As a general rule, hip arthritis is mostly a degenerative condition resulting from a short leg, trauma, or conditions such as impingement and dysplasia. These all need to be considered, as does the usual knock effect in the sacroiliac joint.

What benefits joint arthritis is both strengthening and mobilising exercises. Yoga provides both, but do keep in mind that any new program needs to be started cautiously; you're not preparing for the Olympics, right!

Few exercise programs beat a simple routine done daily at home; it costs nothing and takes only a few minutes.

I hope this contributes.
