VIDEO: Review of New Science on Yoga for Back Pain & Health

This video on The Scientific Results of Yoga, released Aug 1 by the national Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM), features interviews with two leading exercise physiologists regarding their new research on the therapeutic uses of yoga for older adults, and people with chronic lower back pain. (Notably, a major UK trial of Iyengar Yoga specially designed for chronic / recurrent back pain patients has reported an overall 67% reduction in time taken from work due to pain vs a control group treated with ‘more conventional methods’.)
