My Experience Working with Injuries"I have taught clients with recent car accident injuries by taking them through gentle movements/poses on their backs, sitting up, and using props to give some traction to the pelvis and lower back. Some of them have arthritis in the neck, lower back, and knees in which iI use more props to soften the cushion of movement while seated, kneeling, and in quadruped. Those with bugling discs, we avoid a lot of rotational movements and focus on the breath and more stretching warm ups/poses."
