Inflammatory Bowel Disease and Yoga
This study is no longer recruiting.
The Center for Pediatric Inflammatory Bowel Disease is conducting a research study to determine if a structured yoga program, in addition to standard medical treatment, improves quality of life in pediatric patients diagnosed with Inflammatory Bowel Disease. Participants between the ages of 10 and 17 will participate in 12 yoga classes, offered once a week at CHOP outpatient locations or in community settings. The classes include relaxation techniques, breathing exercises and yoga poses felt to be beneficial for a healthy digestive system. Participants also answer a series of questionnaires, four times over the course of the study.
