Overview

Relief Is In The Stretch is the first book to distinguish the nine common causes of low back pain, to teach you how to identify them, and to describe appropriate yoga poses to relieve each one of them.
Dr. Loren M. Fishman, a specialist in rehabilitation medicine who has been using yoga in his medical practice for thirty years, studied yoga in India for a year with B. K. S. Iyengar and is an internationally recognized expert in research and clinical treatment of sciatica and low back pain. This book helps you determine how to start your own yoga practice or alter your existing practice, depending on the severity and chronicity of your pain, and on your physical condition.

    Help in the Back Stretch

    I found Relief Is in the Stretch, to be a surprisingly accessible little book in which the language is personal and unintimidating and the medical explanations are presented with such elegant simplicity that you will think that you are having a chat with the doctor in lawn chairs in your own backyard. While Dr. Fishman is an expert in yoga, he doesn¿t push yoga as an infallible and ultimate panacea. Rather he discusses the utility of yoga for back pain, gives straightforward information about the styles of yoga, and suggests ways that even a novice might give it a try. His discussions add clarity without being condescending or laced with technical jargon. The photographs of yoga poses are so helpful and carefully described that you will not want to part with this book. The challenge? You will not be able to get through the first sixty pages without thinking of four people who would benefit from reading Relief Is in the Stretch by Loren Fishman, MD and author, Carol Ardman. This book is my new favorite for gift giving!
