Spinal Hygiene: Take Care of Your Back
In this class you will learn what Spinal Hygiene is and how to incorporate this into your daily life. You can incorporate these exercises into your daily routine at the office, when you have a break in your day, and even before bed.
The Spinal Hygiene™ exercises are aimed at countering the effects of too much sitting, poor posture, and not enough movement. They assist in healing and preventing spinal degeneration.
The Spinal Hygiene™ exercises are designed to restore and maintain range of motion, muscular strength and stamina, joint lubrication and nutrition, and proper posture. When these aspects of spinal health are restored, healthy spinal neurology (communication and coordination) can also be restored and maintained.
“Posture affects and moderates all human functions, both consciously and unconsciously, from breathing to hormone production, to thinking.”
Research commissioned by the British Chiropractic Association (BCA) showed that a third (1/3) of people spend over 10 hours sitting down every day.
Children’s developing musculoskeletal structures are especially vulnerable to damage caused by sitting and poor posture.
Having an exaggerated curve in your mid-back is associated with a higher risk of death.
