A study with more than 700 volunteers shows that yoga practice can combat osteoporosis and build back bone if you do the poses daily.

Description

Yoga is not often thought of as exercise, much less exercise that can strengthen your bones. Yet physiatrist Loren Fishman, MD, has shown that conscientious practice of certain yoga poses can improve bone mineral density and reduce fractures. On top of that, there are virtually no side effects—except you feel better and learn how to breathe more thoughtfully. Putting gentle stress on the bones stimulates the osteocytes to build more bone and make them stronger. Dr. Fishman demonstrated the power of yoga through a ten-year study of more than 700 volunteers.

Find out whether Dr. Fishman's yoga exercises could help strengthen your bones, counteract osteopenia or combat osteoporosis. His DVD demonstrating the poses is sold at his website, sciatica.org.

Dr. Fishman also describes how he has treated scoliosis, sciatica and rotator cuff injuries with specific yoga poses.

This Week's Guest:

Loren Fishman, MD, is medical director of Manhattan Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation in New York City. He is the author of ten books, including Healing Yoga and Yoga for Osteoporosis. He is on staff at Columbia College of Physicians and Surgeons and associate editor of Topics in Geriatric Rehabilitation.

More yoga for me!

I was so glad to hear this show! I only wish I’d had the information 8 years ago when my Dr’s test letter came back telling me I was in the osteopenia range. Right then I wanted to know something I could do about it! Before getting any kind of treatment I had to progress to osteoporosis, which seemed ridiculous, just waiting for the condition to develop further!

I have always enjoyed yoga and now have good reason to follow the practice more diligently!

I always learn so much from your programs, and you and the guests always give referential information, too. I even take notes. Thanks so much!
