Journal of Gerontological Nursing Aug 10, 2017
Buchanan DT, et al. – The feasibility and efficacy of a shared yoga (SY) program were contemplated in this trial, for sleep disturbance in older adults with osteoarthritis (OA). Based on the findings, it was deduced that this yoga program could improve sleep. However, owing to the study limitations, additional investigation was warranted.
- The enrollment comprised of candidates (ages 50 to 72) with insomnia related to OA.
- The participants were randomized to 12 weeks of SY (n = 9) or individual yoga (IY; n = 7).
- The sample was found 53% male and 41% self-identified as a race other than White/Caucasian.
- The groups did not vary considerable in class attendance, home practice, or change scores on efficacy outcomes.
- Pre-post comparisons in all the enrollees exhibited statistically prominent improvements on the Insomnia Severity Index and Patient-Reported Outcomes Measurement System sleep disturbance scale.
