Types Of Back Pain
There are different types of back pain people suffer from e.g. Spondylosis, Slip Disc, Sciatica, Spinal Stenosis, Spondylolisthesis etc. The yoga practices are different for each type of back pain. For example, the yoga practices for Slip Disc are totally opposite from the yoga practices for Spondylolisthesis. For Slip Disc you need to do backward bending asanas (extension practices) whereas for Spondylolisthesis you need to do forward bending asanas (flexion practices). Therefore each type of back pain practices are different and needs individual customization.
If you are suffering from any type of back pain, you need an expert yoga therapist (not normal yoga instructor or yoga teacher) who can understand your problem and customize the yoga practices accordingly and also design a progressive yoga module that will lead you to recovery step by step.
