Does anyone find relief through light yoga (or other light stretching)? My doctor has cleared me to do yoga and stretching so long as I go slow and "take it easy". So far I HAVE noticed slight temporary relief about an hour after I've stretched, that lasts for a couple hours or so (not pain free, but less pain)... and no rebound pain (I don't notice that I am in greater pain after my less pain time, just "normal" pain returning).
My BIGGEST issue is convincing myself to actually do it. It's hard to make myself move around when moving hurts so much!
Anyway, I was just wondering if anyone else does yoga and if so are there any positions, movements that help more than others. With my back pain I find alternating between Cat/Cow, as well as other back stretches hell. Also standing bent over just letting my upper half dangle toward the floor helps too - not trying to touch the floor or anything, just literally letting myself hang out.
