I understand and respect your willingness to try alternative medicine. But being a physician with many years of experience, I would suggest that in matters of the spinal cord, it is better to first objectively assess the extent of the problem and then decide on the appropriate treatment. I am afraid that a yoga expert will not be able to accurately gauge the extent of the underlying disease.

I would suggest that you should first get a magnetic resonance imaging scan of the spine to assess the extent of compression. Thereafter, get yourself clinically assessed by an orthopaedic surgeon.

If he gives a XXXXXXX signal, then seek the services of a physiotherapist.

This would be the ideal way to approach your problem scientifically.

I hope I have addressed your concerns. I would be available for follow up queries.
