Piles are hemorrhoids that become inflamed. Hemorrhoids are masses, clumps, cushions of tissue in the anal canal – they are full of blood vessels, support tissue, muscle and elastic fibers. When hemorrhoidal cushions become too big (inflamed) that problems occur – when this happens they are called piles or pathological hemorrhoids.

In most cases piles are not serious and go away on their own after a few days. An individual with piles may experience the following symptoms: Pain while defecating, hard lump around the anus. After going to the toilet, a feeling that the bowels are still full, mucus discharge when emptying the bowels

Sarvangasana or the shoulder stand pose is an inverted pose. The inverted pose relieves the gravitational weight from many organs and helps in piles, hydrocele and certain kinds of hernia.

Vipareeta karani asana is one of the simplest of the inverted asanas and hence easy to perform. It help in relaxing the body and reliving piles.
