Back PAIN info:

  • Back pain is the 2nd most sited reason people go to the doctor
  • Back pain has a high occurance in veterans for a number of reasons
  • And they are prescribed pills but it doesn’t really help.
  • Then comes fatigue, depression & quality of life goes down.
  • Yoga can actually help the back pain
  • 45% of veterans have military-connected disability
  • 8% of adults in the US have back pain at some part of their life &
  • 30% of people in the US in the next 3 months will have a short course of back pain

So this effects everyone.

This method of exericise
** reduces intensity of pain, depression, fatigue & medication use.
** pain interference with daily life. Quality of life & self-efficacy both went up with regular yoga practice.

Yoga helps with back pain

See what a Veteran has to say about the Yoga for Low Back Pain class that I teach!

One of the Veterans that regularly takes my Yoga for Low Back Pain class on the Veteran’s Yoga Project had this to say about this class that I teach.

Gail talking.
“Hey Don, welcome back! Hope this helped you! Let me know!”
Don – Veteran
“Yes it always helps! I’m similar to you: chronic back pain for 20-30 years, and since I started doing yoga in Tucson and more recently on-line, my back is much better. Not completely gone, but a heck of a lot better!”

Doesn’t get much better than that!

$10 pays me a bit, pays the Back Pack Food Ministry a bit too!

Even I, a yoga teacher struggled with back pain.
Turns out, some of the yoga poses I was doing was contributing to my back pain.

My pain levels were between a 6 – 9. I had to use a cane, and walker at some point.

I investigated in Yoga Vista’s online training for Gentle Yoga for Low Back Care.

I am a convert now. My pain levels are now anywhere’s between a 0 and level 3. For me that is significant.

So this is my niche. I teach Gentle Yoga for Low Back Care. Great for beginners, those new to yoga, and those of us with back challenges.

The yoga class is on Monday at 6 PM CST (think Texas). My hope for you is to feel better.

You might get some other benefits too! Better balance, higher quality sleep, increased flexibility & strength, building bones, better joint mobility, you might even lose weight with a regular practice.

Join me for next week’s class. IF my class time does not match with your schedule a private yoga session, or getting a weekly video for you to do in the privacy of your home might be better for you.

How to start? Pay me $10 through Paypal.
Then you’ll get the registration link for Zoom (or the video 1-2 days later).

Call me for your questions. 409-727-3177.

Interesting Study: New Study Adds Growing Evidence that Yoga and Meditation Can Reduce Chronic Pain. I can attest to that study, as it has helped me with my chronic back pain!

The study echoes previous findings on the benefits of yoga and meditation for chronic pain published in 2016 in the prestigious Journal of the American Medical Association.

“The bottom line is that patients are seeking new ways to cope with chronic pain and effective non-pharmaceutical treatments are available,” says Dr. Marske. “Our findings show meditation and yoga can be a viable option for people seeking relief from chronic pain.”
