Harvard University —considered one of the crème de la crème universities in the world— has revealed that a posture position similar to that of the Sujood is the “best medicine” to treat back pain.
Sujood is the act of prostrating before God in the direction of the Holy Kaaba (Qibla) during the Salah prayers that Muslims offer five times a day.
In Islam, Sujood is considered a great form of worship, and it is the position where a person is the nearest to God Almighty.
Harvard Health, a platform that shares the “best” information to lead a healthier life from the “trusted” medical team at Harvard Medical School, has revealed something astonishing.
In a post on Twitter, Harvard Health has disclosed that a posture position similar to that during the Sujood is the “best medicine” to treat back pain.
The post also disclosed that this posture position is better than having surgery or any other intervention to relieve back pain.
You might be considering surgery or other intervention to treat your #backpain. But less may actually be more for this common problem, and in many instances the best medicine is good old-fashioned movement and exercise: https://t.co/fVMAYMmIvL pic.twitter.com/QU1RrqL503

There are other tremendous health benefits of Sujood, some of which we are getting to know only recently.
According to a study conducted by the International Journal of Science Culture and Sport (INTGSCS) – DergiPark, the brain received more blood supply during the Sujood position.
This positively affects memory, vision, hearing, concentration, psyche, and other cognitive abilities.
According to another detailed study conducted by the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), the brain structure changes during the Sujood position.
