Ureteropelvic junction (UPJ) obstruction is a blockage in the kidney pelvis. The kidney pelvis, basically looks like a funnel which collects urine. It is located at the upper end of each urethra (tube that carries urine from kidney to the bladder). In normal cases, each of the two kidneys has a urethra. Kidney filters waste matters, excess water, blood and eliminated through urine. Urine is deposited in UPJ and then flows from the urethra into the bladder. In UPJ blockage the flow of urine slows down or stops completely which increases the risk of kidney failure. In most of the cases of UPJ blockage, only one kidney is affected. However, regular exercises and yoga is the perfect tool to prevent UPJ Obstruction.
