Dr. R Kanthanathan, Dr. Vinaya C Damu
Effect of asanas on anxiety in non-insulin dependent diabetic patients was examined. Forty male diabetic patients from Coimbatore aged between 45 to 55 years were selected as subjects randomly. The subjects were equally divided into control group and experimental group. Asanas was assigned for twelve weeks to the experimental group. The control group was not allowed to participate in the programme. To all the subjects a pre-test and a post-test data were collected through the administration of four point scale by Beck Anxiety Inventory. The data collected from the subjects through inventory were statistically analyzed with ‘t’ ratio to find out the significant difference among experimental and control group on anxiety. The analysis reveals that the asanas practice significantly reduced the anxiety level of non-insulin dependent diabetic patients (NIDDM).
