I read that backbends were good but forward straight legs were bad. Does that include standing stick, triangle worriar 3 etc.... if backbends are good for a herniated disc is wheel good too??  I want to push myself to a healthy spine but am not sure what is right.

Thanks so much for your time.

Dear Lonnie,

I apologize for my delay in replying to your question.

I would like to ask how much range of motion around lower back is there. Kindly write back to me with range of motion and exact diagnosis the physician has found with you; only then I will be able to suggest anything.
