DataPoint: Yoga & Low Back Pain

Yoga is a Controlled motion exercise, and a new metastudy looked at its effect on low back pain. Investigators found strong evidence for short-term effectiveness, and moderate evidence for long-term effectiveness when they looked at a total of 967 chronic low back pain patients.  (The StrongPosture® protocols incorporate yogic and rehab concepts into a clinical framework, so I really liked these findings)
