I experienced immediate relief after doing some of the asanas. A must read for anyone who has back pain.
I learned yoga stretches from this book and my lower back pains went away. This amazed me! Please understand I am a scientist by profession and not given to exaggeration or a generalized belief in New Age theories. But this worked, and quickly.
It seems to me that the difference between severe cervical pain and relative comfort is probably quite subtle realignment of the vertibrae or modest strengthening of the core muscles, which then hold the nerve fibers in a slightly different position. It seems these yoga stretches have that effect; drugs do not.
The descriptions of the exercises in the book are fairly clear, but after supplementing them with some youtube videos, they were much clearer (perhaps the book should come with some youtube videos for readers which demonstrate exactly what the author is describing). This is the only reason for my giving four, rather than five, stars.
I did the exercises twice a day for about 10 days and felt much better, but I think that I went a bit too fast and strained my back a bit. I'm resting now and anxious to start anew.
