If you have piles, exercise is likely the last thing you may be thinking of doing. However, exercises like yoga can help you to deal with this condition. Lack of exercise is a major contributing factor to the formation of piles. Yoga plays an important role in piles and fissures treatment.
Yoga has no side effects. It includes bodily exercises such as stretching and asanas (poses) that relax the blood vessels to improve blood circulation. These exercises also relax the muscles, improve the immune systems and remove toxins from the body. Yoga can also help you reduce the chances of having constipation. This can minimize the risk of getting hemorrhoids by up to 90 percent. The following are 6 yoga poses for piles and fissures. They will help you to relieve pain and have easier bowel movements.
Legs up the wall or Viparita Karani
This pose can help improve blood circulation to the anal area. This, in turn, will help reduce the symptoms of piles. Viparita Karani will also help minimize the stress caused by excessive straining when having a bowel movement.
Child’s pose or Balasana
This posture can also help increase blood circulation towards the anal area. It also helps alleviate constipation. You should stay in the child’s pose for at least a minute. You can remain in this position longer as long as you are comfortable.
Garland pose or Malasana
This pose can help prevent constipation, which is a leading cause of piles. The Garland pose will work on your hips, spine and buttocks. In addition, it will stretch and contract the abdomen to balance the functioning of the whole digestive tract. Try to remain in this posture for eight to ten breaths before relaxing.
Wind-relieving pose or Payanmukhtasana
If you apply firm and gentle pressure on your stomach as you practice payanmukhtasana, it can help ease discomfort and release trapped gases in the lower abdomen. This pose also helps to release muscle tension in the anal area. Remain in this position for five to six seconds while observing your breath.
Sitting half spinal twist or Ardha Matsyendrasana
This yoga pose can provide your digestive system with the much-needed boost. The abdominal discomfort will decrease and you will feel that your weakness has disappeared. The blocked energy or life force will start flowing freely. Remain in the twisting posture for five or more breaths and repeat on the opposite side.
Hand underfoot or Padhastasana
This posture is suitable for beginners, but strength and flexibility are required in order to do it. This pose offers relief from joint pain, back pain and abdominal pain. Your abdominal muscles will get relaxed and stretched and this will eliminate problems with your bowel movements.
