A few days as a cripple
 Part of channel(s): Yoursay (promoted)

I have had lower back pain for trhe last three days. Not able to walk outside the house. Using two broomsticks to get around. Effectively a total cripple. Not even able to shower or brush my teeth.

Email my neighbours. Yes, it's that desparate.
Turns-out, their daughter is a Yoga guru. Living just 30ft away.

Get to know you neighbours ;-)

She saw me straight inside just 30mins.

I went from not being able to walk to being able to stand on one leg for the first time in years.

This is a test video. I'm gonna pay her back with more videos of her work.
Worth more than money methinks.

Got my work cut out on that one - there are over 300,000 videos of yoga on YT.

I think the handle will be on Yoga Intervention.

We've all known and laughed about it as a lifestyle for decades.
Ignored it.
Lazy.

Perhaps highlighting the intervention value will be a worthwhile addition to our understanding and acceptance of Yoga.

My experience of that is simple.
It's life-changing.


The current medical thinking on lower back pain is this...

"there is no identified single cause...."
"don't stay in bed more than 2 days"
"Take a pain killer and carry-on...."

I call that ill-informed bullshit.

Professional heads-in-the-sand.
Inexcusable.
