Spine Care

The spinal column, also known as the backbone, is a strong, flexible  structure. It holds the weight of the head and torso. It allows movement in many directions. If it were a straight, inflexible rod, it would make humans walk like robots. However, that is not the case. The spine is flexible (moved and supported by muscles), which enables the ability to twist, hit a golf ball and bend. The spinal column surrounds your spinal cord like conduit around an electric cord. It protects the spinal cord, which can be thought of as a bundle of nerves running from the brain, through the spinal column and branching out to the rest of the body. The spine consists of three natural curves; the neck curvature or cervical spine, the upper back curvature or thoracic spine, and the lower back curvature or lumbar spine, all which make a slight “S” shape when viewed from the side. The spine is an essential structure because it helps support the upright posture of humans as well as provide the body with flexibility to move and protect the spinal cord. Spinal health is important in order to ensure the body is functioning to its fullest capacity. Not only is health coaching utilized to ensure your body is getting the proper nutrients, but it also provides you with strengthing activities to help with posture and protecting the spine. Dr. Alex Jimenez strongly indicates across his collection of articles on spine care, how to properly support a healthy spine.
