Yoga for Back Pain

... works better than pills.  Other types of gentle stretching also helped, but less than yoga.

While I doubt that yoga works on all types  of back pain, it's a great choice for the ones caused by muscle or joint issues, and some nerve issues that come from pinching or stretching.  Yoga makes people a lot more flexible and relaxed, a little stronger, all of which tend to reduce body aches.  Plus it costs nothing if you do it at home, has no risk of addiction, and minimal chance of other drawbacks.

This is especially good news at a time when doctors and police are abusing people who need prescription painkillers.
