Trish Stratus Credits Yoga For Helping Her Avoid Surgery

Nick Paglino

In a recent interview conducted for The Toronto Sun, former WWE Diva Trish Stratus credited yoga for her not needing surgery to repair a herniated disc. The following is a highlight from the interview:

"My body said, ‘I’m really worn out and I need you to start taking care of me so I can last you a little bit longer than this,’" she recalls.

Physiotherapy, however, didn’t do the trick and surgery was proposed.

But Stratus wasn’t ready to surrender herself to the operating table.

"I thought, ‘Well lemme see if I can take a different route,’" she says.

That’s when she turned to yoga.

Her body responded almost immediately. Not only did she avoid surgery, but Stratus also finished out her wrestling career injury-free."
