This section complements other sections under the following headings:
Home/For people with health problems
Yoga therapy/How do I start?
Research/Low back pain & sciatica
General yoga classes often help mild low back pain (LBP) but can exacerbate more serious and chronic back problems. In contrast, specialised yoga therapy can safely help most types of low back pain and sciatica, including herniated disc (‘slipped’ disc) even in its acute phase.
