Over 65 million Americans suffer from back pain each year, making it one of the most common reasons why people in the United States seek medical care. Back problems--such as sciatica and herniated discs--may be a result of injury, arthritis, increased stress on the spine over time, or a myriad of other causes. However, it is never too late to adopt a healthy lifestyle. Yoga can become an integral part of improving your overall health and well-being.
"Gentle Yoga for Back Pain" shows you how to integrate yoga into your exercise routine to promote back health. Because yoga is low-impact and is easily modified to your own needs and abilities, you can safely and effectively reap the benefits of exercise by increasing flexibility, strengthening
