Had a disc bulge about 5 years ago from which I recovered. I have recently taken up yoga which I love but have suffered a recurrence of my disc bulge. What can I do??!

Hello Anon

Thank you for writing!

Generally speaking, if an activity is causing pain, stop the activity. However, you can look into adaptive yoga to see if there are programs that are very gentle on the back but you can still get a good stretch.

Physical therapy may be a better bet for now - is this something you can do?
