A 42-year-old member asked:

Yoga, et al...: Where is your pain? Low back pain may be related to poor arch support, and/or poor posture. Try tilting your pelvis...As if sitting down...Flattening the lumbar curvature of your spine. Does that relieve it any? Yoga can be very useful for fostering body awareness and better posture so that you will understand how shifts in your posture, alignment, and movement will affect how you feel.

How bad is it? : I don't know what is causing your back pain, but you have to decide if it is bad enough... Back pain is most commonly caused by posture, and muscle imbalance leading to spasm. Exercise should help promote awareness of your body and your posture, strengthen what you need to strengthen, and stretch what you need to stretch. Yoga is ideal for this. Body awareness will help prevent re-injury, too.

As often as you can.: I don't know what is causing your back pain, but it wouldn't change my response very much. Back pain is most commonly caused by posture, and muscle imbalance leading to spasm. Exercise should help promote awareness of your body and your posture, strengthen what you need to strengthen, and stretch what you need to stretch. Yoga is ideal for this. Body awareness will help prevent re-injury, too.
