Yogasanas as a Neurodynamic Mobilisation Tool in the Treatment of Sciatica

Abstract
Background & objectives: Neurodynamic mobilisation tests are well established techniques for mobilising nerves. Yogasanas are also independently recognised for their benefits in various conditions and ailments. This study compares Paschimotanasana, which is similar in position to the Neurodynamic mobilisation tests for the sciatic nerve. Methods: 32 patients suffering from sciatica were enrolled in either of the two treatment groups- Neurodynamic mobilisation and Yogasanas. The Yogasana group has to perform 7 asanas, out of which only one Yogasana (Paschimotanasana) would be similar to slump test. Pain was assessed using the Visual analogue pain scale (VAS). Results: There was no statistically significant difference (P>0.05) between the VAS scores obtained between the two groups. However, the Yogasana group took more number of days (2 weeks) for pain relief compared to the Neurodynamic mobilisation group. Interpretation & conclusion: Yogasanas can be used for mobilizing peripheral nerves, and with regular use reduce their mechanosensitivity. While the patient can self mobilize the nerve, the role of physiotherapist will be in planning appropriate Yogasanas and teach the programme as a package initially, to instruct about overstretching and protect blood vessels travelling with nerves and supervise intermittently.[Gaurang B NJIRM 2017; 8(4):48-52]

Key words: Paschimotanasana, Physiotherapy, Neurodynamic mobilisations, Neurodynamics, Sciatica, Yogasanas.

List of Journals Indexed for MEDLINE

The List of Journals Indexed for MEDLINE publication ceased with the 2008 edition. The NLM Catalog can be used to obtain a list of currently indexed MEDLINE titles; select the Limit for Current Subsets called "Currently indexed in MEDLINE."

The List of Serials Indexed for Online Users online publication is designed to provide bibliographic information for serials from which articles are indexed with the MeSH® vocabulary and cited in MEDLINE®, the backbone of the NLM PubMed® database. More detailed bibliographic data and information about indexing coverage for serials cited in MEDLINE/PubMed can be found in LocatorPlus®, the NLM online catalog, and the NLM Catalog, an Entrez database.

Journals Recently Accepted by NLM for Inclusion in MEDLINE lists titles selected by LSTRC which meets three times per year in February, June, and October. Results from those meetings appear online about six weeks after each meeting, both on the Web page and in the NLM Catalog.

Previous print versions of the List of Journals Indexed for MEDLINE might be available from the U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO). Information about ordering documents from GPO is available at http://www.nlm.nih.gov/pubs/pubcat.html#ordering.
