Try the camel pose to get rid of backache and thyroid ailments.
Yoga - Camel pose
Ushtrasana, also known as the camel pose, loosens up the vertebral column and provides strength and flexibility. This asana is a boon for those suffering from backache. It also tones the neck region and regulates the thyroid gland. It keeps the body agile and fit.
  • Start in Vajrasana and kneel on the mat, keeping back straight and hands by the sides.
  • Slowly lean backwards, taking right hand to right heel and then left hand to left heel. Do not strain the back.
  • Push abdomen forward while keeping thighs in a vertical position and dropping head back as far as possible.
  • Inhale while getting into this position and breathe normally.
  • Hold for 10-30 seconds.
  • Slowly return to the start position by releasing hands one by one and sit in Vajrasana.
  • Bend forward and stretch the back.
  • Improves the digestive and reproductive systems by massaging all the internal organs.
  • Alleviates constipation by stretching the intestines.
  • Improves blood circulation in the spinal cord and stimulates the spinal nerves.
  • Helps in correcting drooping shoulders and relieves back pain.
  • Regulates the functioning of the thyroid glands.
Note: People suffering from severe back ailments and enlarged thyroid glands should attempt this posture only under expert guidance.
