Research & How Yoga May Help: OPLL

Baxter Bell MD points out that there is no existing research (at the time of this writing) on Yoga & OPLL. Thus, he suggests that we might turn to learning from other conditions.

There have been no studies done to date on yoga for OPLL. Therefore, [my] suggestions are educated guesses based on yoga being used for other forms of cervical arthritis and disc issues that share some similarities to OPLL. As always, in such unusual cases, proceed slowly and gradually, and allow some time to see how the person you’re working with responds to your yoga recommendations. – Baxter Bell MD
