Spinal Health 3 Keys

The 3 Keys to Spinal Health:  Proper Alignment, Flexibility, and Strength.

To help you maintain optimal spinal health there are 3 components you need to focus on:

Chain_missing-link_83969848
1. Proper alignment.
2. Proper flexibility of joints and muscles
3. Great strength.

Proper alignment:
Proper alignment is the state in which the natural curves of your spine are all in alignment. How you sit, lift, sleep, or carry yourself are all important for helping your spine stay properly aligned. When the spine or vertebra are not in proper alignment the back muscles, ligaments, discs and spinal joints are all under increased and uneven stress. This can lead to abnormal wear patterns ultimately lead to acute or chronic pain patterns.

Proper flexibility:
Appropriate movement is essential for maintaining healthy joints, tissues and organs. Movement helps to lubricate and nourish your joints. When joints become tight and restricted it is difficult for nutrients to reach the cartilage since cartilage has very poor blood supply. This process ultimately leads to abnormal wear patterns and degeneration of the joint. This can also lead to premature osteoarthritis. Lack of motion also restricts the transfer of oxygen rich blood to the discs that form a cushion between the bones in your spine; this can lead to accelerated disc degeneration.

“Motion is a sign of life itself. . ..”

Great strength:
As you work towards improving your spinal health with better alignment and flexibility, don’t forget your muscular system. One of the most common causes of ongoing back pain is weak supporting musculature. Achieving and maintaining muscular strength is not only essential for our ability to function, it is also vital for stabilizing and protecting our joints.

“If your back is weak…You may have a problem.”

At Back2Strength our Doctors are focused on re-building muscular strength in your spine. This can be a critical component to your recovery and long term results. Many patients are not aware that Back2Strength is on the cutting edge of spinal rehabilitation. MedX technology offers us the ability to evaluate your strength levels and compare your results with established norms. In fact, there are over 70 published research articles discussing the incredible results of our program which is used in leading spine treatment centers around the world. However, strengthening your back requires your active participation and a willingness to challenge yourself over time to give your body the best chance of full recovery.

Life is continuously presenting us with many decisions where we HAVE to be able to say yes to if we want the best quality of life. We hear it every day........."if you don't play, you can't win," "if you don't use it you lose it," "you'll never know if you'll like it if you don't try it." Similarly, if you don't give your body what it needs (nutrition, energy, exercise, etc.....), you'll never feel at your very best. Make the decision to break away from the normal and easy cycle of saying "i'll do it eventually, I know I will. I just need to wait until it's the right moment and I have the time to start." No excuses, get out and start giving your body what it needs.......once you see even the smallest of positive changes, you'll be hooked and you won't want anything different! #back2strength #strengthismedicine #investinyourhealth ...

We love these extended weeks of sunshine here at Back2strength, as i'm sure the rest of you do as well! It makes everything better. If you haven't driven by the clinic in a while then you may not have seen our new street sign! We're offering any first timers the chance to meet with one of our trainers for two free sessions. Session one would be to consult with a trainer to talk about health and fitness goals, program expectations, and any other topics that are important to you.....followed by a quick trainig session/equipment orientation. Session two would be a full strength training session to give you a chance to see and feel the amazing effects of our exercise equipment! Give us a call and jump start a new exercise routine, you won't regret it! #back2strength #strengthismedicine #investinyourhealth #stronger #younger #painfree ... See MoreSee Less
