In this article, osteopathic doctors reported that patients in their care experienced an increased reduction of back pain when yoga was added to their osteopathic manipulative treatment (OMT) regimen. Because of its focus on spinal movement and structural alignment, yoga works the body in a way that is similar to OMT, the doctors explained.

Lillie Rosenthal, a Manhattan-based DO, is quoted throughout the article. Osteopath Eden Fromberg, an obstetrician/gynecologist and the founder/director of Lila Yoga in Manhattan, is also interviewed.
