Relief Is in the Stretch: End Back Pain Through Yoga Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Dr. Loren M. Fishman, a specialist in rehabilitation medicine who has been using yoga in his medical practice for thirty years, studied yoga in India for a year with B. K. S. Iyengar and is an internationally recognized expert in research and clinical treatment of sciatica and low back pain. This book helps you determine how to start your own yoga practice or alter your existing practice, depending on the severity and chronicity of your pain, and on your physical condition. The postures in this guide, each one illustrated by a photograph, target specific sources of pain--from arthritis to spinal stenosis, from pregnancy to sacroiliac joint derangement--and demonstrate how you can manage, reduce, and ultimately end your pain.

Including photos of poses for each diagnosis, suggested reading, and resources, they discuss nine common causes of such pain and yoga basics. Not indexed.
