This is the second installment in NCCAM’s video series entitled The Science of Mind and Body Therapies. The first video, Tai Chi and Qi Gong for Health and Well-Being, was launched September 2010.
The video from NCCAM includes:
A look at innovative technology that examines how older people use their muscles and joints in certain yoga postures. (George Salem, Ph.D., University of Southern California)
An overview of a rigorously designed study that shows yoga may benefit people with chronic low-back pain, a common and difficult-to-treat problem. (Karen Sherman, Ph.D., M.P.H., Group Health Research Institute)
Valuable “dos and don’ts” for consumers who are thinking about practicing yoga.
