Relieving Back and Hip Pain with Yoga

For yoga, physical, and occupational therapists; yoga practitioners; and anyone experiencing pain.

Learn how to use yoga to treat lower-back and hip pain with medical doctor Allen Wilkins and yoga therapist Terry Roth Schaff. At Manhattan Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, where Allen and Terry work, yoga is an integral part of the patient treatment plan. Become familiar with medical conditions that lead to back and hip pain, and explore how yoga postures can be used to address these conditions.

Using discussion and practice accessible to everyone, Allen and Terry give you the opportunity to see firsthand how a yoga treatment plan is created, by adapting specific yoga postures and sequences to each person’s needs and physical abilities. They believe there is no “one size fits all” approach to this practice, so individual responses and feedback are central to their work.
