This book gives a comprehensive account of a ground breaking piece of research conducted by the York Trials Unit, Department of Health Sciences at the University of York, funded by Arthritis Research UK. To date it is the largest piece of research done on yoga as a remedial aid. There are ten million people in the UK who are suffering from arthritis and related conditions. The aim of the trial was to assess the role of yoga in pain relief for this group of people. The results were exciting for yoga practitioners and arthritis sufferers. They showed a statistically and clinically significant improvement in the yoga group compared to the non-yoga group, all having started from much the same base. The most dramatic improvement was after the first three months. There is an excellent chapter on What to do if you get a sign of a painful back episode, which begins "Don't panic"! Even if you read nothing else in the book, these suggestions are worth a look. They are helpful, basic, sensible and safe. Advice is offered for different types of painful backs. This book is an impressive record of a project which will surely encourage the use of yoga as a remedial tool in the future. --Positive Health Online
