"How to Practice Yoga Without Wrecking Your Body"
by Lee Albert NMT
A recent NY Times article (How Yoga Can Wreck Your Body) is warning us about the dangers of yoga. There are a number of good points in the article about inversions and stretching too deeply into postures. The article goes on to describe various injuries many people suffer while practicing yoga.This even includes some quite accomplished yogis. The article concludes that the vast majority of people should give up yoga altogether.

While I agree with much of what is said in the article, I have come to a much different conclusion.

"One-Third Of Americans Experience Chronic Pain"
by Lee Albert NMT
A third of all Americans -- more than 116 million people -- live with longlasting, chronic pain, according to a new report from the Institute of Medicine. That is more than all the people who have heart disease, diabetes and cancer, combined.

Chronic pain is defined as pain lasting for 30 to 60 days, and that has an impact on personal and professional life, TIME reported. The costs of chronic pain are up to $635 billion a year, when adding up treatment costs and money lost from decreased productivity, according to the report.

"How to Relieve Wrist Pain"
by Lee Albert, NMT

Are you frustrated that your wrist pain just does not seem to go away? Are the drugs from the doctor or the exercises from the physical therapist not helping? Do you finally want to know what to do about your wrist pain?

The solution is really quite simple. You have to treat the cause of the pain and not the symptom. Most therapists and doctors are treating your symptom. Now, don't get me wrong. That can sometimes help, but it is usually temporary help, because they have not eliminated the cause of the pain. Drugs are treating your symptom, not the cause.

"Breathe Correctly to Reduce Pain"
by Lee Albert, NMT

In an excellent article (The Five Healing Benefits of Breath), the author reminds us about the importance of breathing fully, slowly and steadily. The article describes some of the benefits of healthy breathing as calming the mind, cleaning toxins and reducing pain in the body. 

Most people take breathing for granted. Usually we do not give it much thought. Breathing, however is the most significant activity that we do because it gives us the most important nutrient required for life: oxygen.

Low Back Pain?
by Lee Albert NMT

In my 25 years of helping people to live a pain free life, I have observed that 60-70% of the low back pain that I treat is originating with tight, short muscles on the front side of the body. These muscles are the quadriceps and the psoas. 

Let me explain how muscles that do not hurt (quads & psoas) are causing pain on the other side of the body (low back). The quads & psoas are hip flexor muscles, which in simple terms help you to bend forward. When these muscles are too short, and tight they then pull your pelvis forward. This tilting of the pelvis causes a compression in the low back and the resulting pain. That pain you feel is the symptom, but the cause is often the hip flexor muscles.

"Five Fitness & ExerciseTips for Healthy Aging"
by Lee Albert, NMT

Have you ever been told that you should expect aches and pains because you're getting older?

Well, don't believe it.

One of my clients came to me complaining of low back pain. Her doctor had examined her and ordered an MRI. The MRI revealed nothing significant. The doctor told her that she should expect this sort of thing as she was now getting older. 

She didn't look very old to me. I asked her, How old are you? 29, she said. OK, I said, maybe you want to find another doctor.
