Yoga is often combined with a meditation technique, but can be done by itself for effective treatment of many conditions. Yoga, as an alternative form of medicine more commonly known as CAM, can be used in conjunction with conventional medical practices by medical doctors (MDs) as well as doctors of osteopathy (DOs). This combination of traditional and alternative health approaches to deal with high blood pressure, osteoporosis, arthritis, and other bone and joint diseases are suggested not only by such physicians, but also by physical therapists who adapt many forms of yoga and meditation into both physical and recreational therapy programs.
