He said that the most important of these are keeping your body mass index down to normal levels, having a healthy diet, exercising regularly and keeping supple - these will all reduce the risk of injury and limit the chances of developing arthritis.

Moyes, who specialises in arthroscopic surgery for knee, shoulder, foot and ankle problems, said that yoga also helps improve flexibility and functioning of joints and therefore reduces the risk of injury, especially if the patient takes part in contact sports.

He added that they are seeing more and more 'high level' athletes such as professional footballers engaging in yoga to reduce their injury rates and risks.
