Foreword

This book has a place in the treatment of the patient with disorders of back and joints. The introductory chapters explain what is Yoga and this helps to bring the reader nearer to accepting Yoga as a method of treatment. The emphasis on the role of functional stress could be dangerous. The treatment for organic disease could he delayed or totally denied to the patients.

The orthopaedic surgeon has done well to explain common joint problems in simple terms, yet he has not sacrificed scientific facts. This will help patients to dispel doubts. The place of asanas and their appropriate use in individual cases is a very, very useful prescription.

Claims to cure with Yoga must be backed up by scientific proof. When relief is obtained by learning to live with the affliction Yoga would prepare the patients mentally better than any medical treatment.

This useful book will have limited exposure since it is written in English. It deserves publication in other languages for larger benefits to the society.

Preface

Alot of healing takes place within us when we cooperate with our innate healing powers. However, it is not easy and definitely requires determination, perseverance and regularity. That is what has been detailed in the pages of this book. That is what yoga is all about - a totally healthy way of living. Although Yoga emphasizes on the importance of prevention, it works wonders at the curative level as well.

The major thrust has been in presenting a simple understanding of a seemingly complex problem to a wide target audience - patients, doctors, physiotherapists, yoga teachers and even the unaffected who are keen on preventing orthopaedic ailments. After all, every human being is faced with prospects of suffering from such ailments as one ages. In that, this book is a ‘must read’ for everyone.

This book has been compiled with the help of a large team, each one contributing their own specific talents under the able guidance of Dr. Jayadeva Yogendra and Mrs. Hansaji Jayadeva Yogendra. We are thankful to Dr. P.S. Mamtora, Mrs. Chitra Pillai, Mrs. Parul Desai, Mrs. Armaiti Deasai, Mrs. Swati Mansharamani, Dr. Devdutt Pattnaik, Mr. Pratik Dholakia, Mr. Kashyap Desai, Mrs. Sandhya Patki, Mr. Harry Sequeira, Ms. Jillian Speer, Mrs. Anu Kohli, Mr. Sushil Bahl, for their varied contribution.
