D Behera. J Assoc Physicians India. .


Fifteen patients of chronic bronchitis received yoga therapy in the form of pranayam and 8 types of 'asans' for a period of 4 weeks. They had a perceptible improvement in dyspnoea as was measured by visual analog. Lung function parameters (VC, FEV1, and PEFR) also improved after the practice of yoga. This preliminary study indicates that, yoga may be an useful adjunct to other conventional form of therapy for COPD.
