Yoga as a complementary therapy

This article focuses on the progressive trend toward use of yoga as a mind-body complementary and alternative medicine intervention to improve specific  physical and mental health conditions. The aim is to provide clinicians with therapeutically useful information about yoga, and the evidence
evaluating yoga as an effective intervention for children and adolescents with health problems is reviewed and summarized. The article points out that the majority of studies indicate benefits to using yoga as a therapeutic intervention and show very few adverse effects, though it must be said that many of the studies have methodological limitations that prevent strong conclusions from being drawn.
