As anyone with back problems will tell you, pain, limited activities, and days missed from work take their toll physically, financially, and emotionally. Learn more
A big problem with most back care programs is limited treatment options. Pain medications often mask problems, allowing further damage to occur because warning pain is not felt. Physical therapy is limited by what insurance companies deem necessary, and lastly surgery, a costly option, is often ineffective.
This book features two yoga therapy practices. The first is for acute back problems which means you’re in pain right now. This practice is designed to bring structural balance back into your body and gently stretch key muscles, reducing pain and helping you heal. The second practice is designed to build strength and flexibility which helps prevent future problems.
•How to prevent low back problems in the first place.
•The different types of low back problems and why they occur.
•A first-aid section that shows highly effective natural methods for relieving pain.
•Anatomy of the low back.
