Yoga exercises are great for relieving low back pain and overall health. The primary goal of back pain relief exercises is to elongate the spinal and balance the muscles of the body in order to provide support and protection to the spine and discs.

These exercises are great yoga exercises for back pain relief. Now please do each exercise slowly and carefully and make sure you check with your Doctor and Chiropractor to make sure these exercises are ok and safe for you to do. And of course you should work with a trained instructor.

Here are the three exercises:

1.  Sun Salutation:  stand in an upright position and hold your hands in a prayer position in front of your chest.  Inhale deeply and slowly raise your arms over your head. If this feels good that’s great. You can stop here or you can continue and slowly bend forward. It is not necessary to touch the floor all you have to do is stretch forward to a nice comfortable stretch. You do not want to feel any pain at all.

2.  The Corpse: lie flat on your back in a relaxed position, place your arms at your sides, with your palms down, and keep your legs flat down in a relaxed position and have your knees out turned slightly. Now just breathe deeply and let the stress and strain float out of your body.

3.  The Cat Pose: the starting position is to be on your  knees and hands  and keep your back flat. Keep your hands directly under your shoulders and keep your knees directly under your hips. Now relax and loosely face the floor and take several deep breathes. Inhale deeply and and then as you exhale arch your back and tuck your chin into your chest and tuck your tailbone. Keep this posture for 5 to 10 seconds or more if it feels good and then return to the starting position.

Please always see your Chiropractor, Doctor or Physical Therapist before starting any exercise program.

There is debate within the fibromyalgia community whether or not a total of 11 out of 18 points must test positive in order to be given a diagnosis of fibromyalgia.  I treat severe fibromyalgia patients every day, day in and day out, and my feeling on whether 11 points must test positive is "who cares?"  Fibromyalgia is a name, a label so to speak, that many doctors put on patients because they don't understand why they have widespread pain all over the body.  In reality when looking at tender points you are only measuring the symptoms but ignoring the cause, which is central nervous system dysfunction.

I have never met a doctor who was not interested in seeing his or her patients get well, to return to normal activities and lifestyle.  Unfortanately fibromyalgia is not the typical disease or illness that can be treated with traditional medical interventions, and then have it go away.  Out of frustration doctors label chronic pain patients with fibromyalgia as a way of saying "Mrs. Smith you have fibromyalgia, their is nothing that can be done for you, sorry." In a way, its an out, an escape, from the patient that just won't get better.  Doctors want to help but I just see too many grow frustrated because they are trying to treat a complex problem with an approach that doesn't work for fibromyalgia.
