Bones are the third most common site for cancer metastases and the axial skeleton is the most frequent skeletal location. In a postmortem study, bone metastases were reported in 70% of breast and prostate cancer patients. Bone metastases from breast, lung, prostate, thyroid, and kidney cancers account for 80% of all bone metastases. Bone lesions exist in 60% of newly diagnosed multiple myeloma patients. With increasing numbers of cancer survivors, many cancer patients with axial skeletal bony metastases will be seen by yoga instructors.
Guidelines are lacking on how to practice Yoga in these patients without compromising the diseased spine. This lecture will discuss the available evidence in similar spinal conditions, the biomechanics of spinal load and changes associated with posture and weight load. We will render our recommendations on Yoga practice in these patients.
