Movie Reviews

Solid, but the talking goes on for a bit too much
Le Creuset | San Francisco, CA | 10/19/2005
(2 out of 5 stars)

"I buy these DVDs for senior citizens (~75 years old) who are looking to exercise. One of my seniors has back pain, so this was a very intriguing DVD. Overall, Dr. Lam does a good job. But there is way too much talking interspersed throughout and this actually annoys the one senior citizen I got this DVD for. So at least from her, she did not like it. I personally liked his gentle techniques. Overall, I'd hope that someone else produces another DVD for people with back pain (so many of us are out there) that is a bit more movement centered rather than talking centered."
Good DVD

"I've had periodic bouts with back spasms and back pain for the past 6 years. I'm very lazy when it comes to doing excercises. I'd rather play tennis instead. I've had this DVD for over a year but never really did the exercises. As soon as my back got better, I would forget about it or doing any excercise. This past episode of back pain made me watch this DVD again. The DVD is informative and has interviews with back Drs and physical therapists. They attribute back pain to muscle imbalances. The video shows a shortened version of Tai Chi designed to develop the core/stabilizing muscles of the body, along with improving the posture and increasing flexibility. The instructions were very patiently explained and easy to follow. The positions are easy to learn and did not strain my back.

I don't know how long I will keep doing these exercises. However, I do enjoy it. And I think it helps.
