    The cobra yoga pose would put me in a wheelchair. It is dangerous for pinched discs.

      Thank you so much for your comments. Like every condition in the human body, no two problems are exactly the same from person to person. For uncomplicated disc issues, like mild bulges and non surgical disc herniations, gentle extensions can relieve disc pressure on the irritated nerve root. Complicated disc problems involving extensive arthritis or degenerative joint decay, ligament laxity, extensive muscular degeneration, disc fissures, disc prolapse, disc annular tears or any combination of these may not respond so favorably to extension exercises. It is always wise to consult with a professional, familiar with your unique circumstances, before attempting any type of stretches and or exercises.
