  1. Rotator Cuff Syndrome – NIH grant free-to-participants: Study using yoga to reverse the symptoms of rotator cuff.  Held in our office in Midtown Manhattan.  Please call (212) 472-0077 to make an appointment. 
  2. Osteoporosis Dose-response Study: Ongoing study with DVD that has been proven to build bone in people of all ages.  Write Tina@sciatica.org or see the site.
  3. Yoga Treatment for Scoliosis – We have found a simple yoga pose which, done one time daily, reverses nearly every case of scoliosis we have encountered.  We published a small series and a larger one of adolescent idiopathic scoliosis patients’ and degenerative scoliosis patients’ successes with this simple method, and are currently studying more advanced methods for more complex curves.  Interested parties can come to the office or be treated by Skype!

Yoga Injury PreventionA computer and I-phone and Android accessible website where you can click on a pose and see the contraindications, and click on any number of contraindications and see which poses are compatible with them all. Plus explanations of why each contraindication applies, and workarounds for every pose/contraindication.  Released July 24, 2018 with a free one week trial for everyone.
  1. Second Series of Poses: Yoga vs. Osteoporosis: New poses selected and designed according to the same criteria as the now-proven set that reverses osteoporosis and builds bone in people of all ages.
