Do you get pain from doing back bends? This motion takes the low back vertebrae and compresses them into what we call a 'closed packed position'...It can JAM an already unhappy joint or for those who are OVERLY mobile, it can create havoc!

Here's a great patient story about an athlete who is also a yoga teacher. I've seen MANY yoga teachers for low back pain, and avoiding the deep back bends is all it takes to protect that delicate spine.

History:

Janie Stretchipantz is an 38 year old yoga teacher. Her low back began hurting after an intensive weekend yoga teacher training camp in which she did yoga 3-4 hours every day for a week.

Flexible and well versed, her technique has been honed over the years and she would rate herself at the high teacher level.

Every year, new research comes out on chiropractic and the validity of such studies.

Here's some data from the newest report:

IS IT SAFE?

Spinal Surgery:  1,800 negative responses per Million 

Cervical Spine Surgery (Neck): 500 negative responses per Million

Use of Aspirin and NSAIDS: 153 negative responses per Million

Prescription Opiod Pain Medications: 53.6 deaths per Million

Chiropractic Adjustment: Less than 1 major injury per Million 

(or about 1 in 5.85 million)
