Bikram Yoga can help to reduce headaches, scoliosis, herniated disks and many other back problems.  Increasingly doctors and chiropractors are recommending Bikram Yoga for those suffering from such back related issues.

Additionally, studies have shown that Bikram Yoga helps prevent osteoporosis, acting as a counter measure for bone density loss in women.
