Abstract
Purpose Chronic low back pain (CLBP) is prevalent among military veterans and often leads to functional limitations, psychological symptoms, lower quality of life, and higher health care costs. An increasing proportion of US veterans are women, and women veterans may have different healthcare needs than men veterans. The purpose of this study was to assess the impact of a yoga intervention on women and men with CLBP.
