Project Details


This document shows the structuring of the problem of management of workers with chronic pain, for this purpose an approach to the problem of chronic pain is made, the affected spheres of action are identified and a methodological device is developed in order to understand the impact of an alternative pain management strategy based on yoga, given that the scientific literature shows the existence of a close relationship between chronic pain and other diseases such as depression and anxiety, which presumably hinder the reintegration into the workplace and negatively affect people's well-being.
other diseases such as depression and anxiety, which presumably hinder the reintegration to the working world and negatively affect the welfare of people.
For this purpose, a pilot study was designed with the participation of 60 volunteers, the study was developed in three phases: The first one oriented to identify the perception of pain and quality of life; the second phase designed to expose a group of the volunteers to a control therapy based on yoga, and another group to pain management techniques]; the third phase is oriented to collect the perception of the workers at the exit of the process.
