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.
