  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!
