Back pain solutions are often easier to find than most think. When your back hurts, the rest of your body hurts, too. This may be an indication of too much stress on the body or there is not enough movement to help nourish the back and spine. Certain exercises will often provide back pain solutions.

Discover strategies for safely stretching and strengthening your back, nutritional plans, and many other natural options to help lessen nagging back pain. Approximately 90 minutes.

Solutions for Back Pain DVD Includes:
  • An informative 30-minute conversation with Mayo Clinic specialists
  • A consultation with Mayo Clinic dieticians to teach you what to eat and what to avoid with respect to your condition
  • An instruction by Rodney Yee which guides you through condition-specific relaxation poses and mediation exercises, designed to help relieve tension and enhance circulation

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Back Pain Help I found the Mayo Clinic information to be very helpful. Knowing what to eat to increase wellbeing was good for me, not realizing the connection with back pain. The exercise portion was informative, but short. I would have liked to see more poses. Needed equipment was not stated before the yoga poses began, which was a hassle to pause the tape to go and find the props. Overall it is good. Sometimes regular yoga videos don't consider those of us with compromised back conditions. July 23, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by An excellent choice I've suffered with back pain for many years now and when I saw the dvd I had to try it out. I've been using it for the past few weeks and I've felt an amazing difference. My back is no longer stiff as a board it moves more freely, and I no longer have a twinge every time I go to do something. July 16, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love the DVD! This DVD is well worth the money. I would certainly recommend. Very informative, easy to understand, easy to follow and loaded with helpful information and tips. February 18, 2010
Rated 4 out of 5 by Very informative video increased my knowledge about back pain and what to do to alleviate the discomfort. January 14, 2010

Answer: 
I would contact your doctor for the best advice. This DVD will help with back pain, but not necessarily back pain caused by bulged or herniated discs. To be safe, please consult with your physician.

No, our DVDs are formatted for region 1 DVD players so they will not play on European DVD players. Please see our international page at the bottom of the website for a listing of international distributors. Only DVDs purchased in it's own region will work international DVD players.

The Mayo Clinic DVD's are intended as a general information that will touch on many areas of concern for those who deal with back pain. The do not address specific issues such as areas of the spine and disks. In addition, we are not qualifited medical practiononers and therefore cannot recommend products for a specific condition.
