Spine Care

Spine Care: The spinal column, or the spine, is a strong, flexible structure that holds the weight of the head and torso. The flexibility of the spine, or the spinal column, enables the ability to twist and bend. The spine surrounds the spinal cord like a conduit around an electric wire. It protects the spinal cord, which can be thought of as a bundle of nerves running from the brain through the spinal column and then branches out to the rest of the human 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, flexible structure because it helps support the upright posture of humans as well as provide the body with the flexibility to move and protect the spinal cord. Spinal health is important in order to ensure the body is functioning to its fullest capacity. Dr. Alex Jimenez strongly indicates across his collection of articles on spine care, how to properly support a healthy spine and prevent low back pain and sciatica.
