Yoga For Back Pain?

Last year I shared with you a post about a yoga pose that I find really helpful for back pain. Apparently, not all yoga poses may be beneficial for back problems. Yesterday, I came across to this video of the physical therapists Bob Schrupp and Brad Heineck who share 7 yoga poses that are bad for the back. They were mainly talking about poses that include bending down and twisting. The video received criticism because the poses weren’t correctly performed and that could be the actual reason for causing stress and injury on the back.

In another video, they shared 7 yoga poses that are beneficial for back health.

  1. I injured my back many years ago. I’ve slowly gotten tot eh point where the yoga helps ease the tightness.

    I am nowhere near a yoga practitioner, I only do certain poses.

  2. Some friends who practice Yoga explain various benefits, including for back pain. I myself only do “Energy Dance”, an exercise that only follows the flow of energy without our involvement to regulate its movements or postures.
