    as i’m not a medical expert i don’t know for sure, but… i had chronic pain in my back and neck. i know your issue is not the pain but i started taking yoga classes and it really helped to loosen my body up. the reason i mention it though is that i also gained a lot more control over my body and became extremely graceful – not to mention my mental health definitely benefited as well. i really think that doctors don’t have patients do things like this because masking the symptoms (i.e. doling out drugs) is where the money is at. i could not believe that after just two weeks of yoga i could not only almost lay my hands flat on the ground while standing up (i could barely reach my ankles prior to starting) but the intense pain i had had for over a year was completely gone. find a good yoga instructor that you can talk to about your limitations and i’m sure they’ll be able to help you out. i hope this helps.
