Back Care:

Chronic back pain contributes to 264 million days of missed work in one year. Experts predict 80% of people will experience back pain in their lives. Back pain is the third most common reason for doctor visits next to skin disorders and osteoporosis or joint disorders. Low back pain costs Americans 50 billion in healthcare costs each year. With such alarming statistics, yoga is now being recommended by doctors to patients with chronic back pain. However, you cannot treat all back pain the same way. Gabriella Barnstone has worked closely with Dr. Loren Fishman, a leading physician who has recommended yoga therapy to treat chronic back pain. Under this tutelage, she studied the nature of common sources of back pain, among them herniated disc, spinal stenosis, and Piriformis syndrome.  She can create a yoga program to help combat these specific issues so that clients are pain free and more mobile in their everyday lives.https://cdn.ymaws.com/www.iayt.org/resource/resmgr/docs_Research_Summaries/12.Summaries_LBP.pdf

 

 

Osteoporosis:

Because more of us are living longer, there is now a clear focus on physical issues related to aging. Osteoporosis currently affects more than 200 million people. Weight bearing exercise is recommended to help promote bone density, but not all weight bearing exercise is ideal for those prone to fractures. Recent studies using yoga as an alternative treatment have shown promising results for maintaining bone density https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4851231/. Under the guide of a trained therapist a patient diagnosed with osteoporosis can practice in a safe way to guard against fractures and other side effects of osteoporosis.https://journals.lww.com/topicsingeriatricrehabilitation/fulltext/2009/07000/yoga_for_osteoporosis__a_pilot_study.9.aspx
