Yoga vs Osteoporosis DVD
Dr. Fishman’s 741 patient (227 fully compliant) 10 year study demonstrated that the twelve poses in this DVD safely and effectively build bone, reversing the bone-weakening effects of osteoporosis.
New Osteoporosis Study Beginning Fall 2016
We are beginning a new study, seeking a dose-response relationship between yoga and bone mineral density and bone quality, a more compendious measure of a bone’s resistance to fracture.
This study attempts to prove that properly chosen yoga poses can reverse osteoporosis without having negative effects on the joints. In addition, we hope to establish a dose-response relationship between the quantity and quality of yoga, and rise in bone mineral density, and possibly bone quality.
