Yoga good for back ache.
A trial involving teaching yoga to folk suffering from back ache has shown promising results.
Many folk have already found relief from back pain through attending a yoga group. Now it's official. Arthritis Research UK sponsored a trial of two types of Yoga carried out in programmes run by professionaly trained yoga teachers. There was both a short term and long term benefit.
The expert yoga teachers have set up a web site about their research-proven back care courses together with a list of qualified teachers. www.yogaforbacks.co.uk.
