Spinal Hygiene

Home Spinal Care

Most of us understand that every part of our body needs to be taken care of. We see the dentist regularly to maintain oral hygiene. We schedule physicals, mammograms, and colonoscopies as regular wellness checkups. You are taught from a very young age that you must brush your teeth a couple times a day and floss at least once a day if you want to have a healthy smile. Basically, we are taught that if we don't de proper up-keep on all areas of our body it won't last as long as we want it to.

 

That said, spinal health seems to fly under the radar in our society. No one is taught to take care of their spine. If you ask anyone what spinal hygiene is, or how to properly take care of your spine there is a very good change all you will get is a funny stare!

 

What's normal:

1. Your spine should be straight from front to back and from the site it should have 3 curves. One in the neck, one in the upper back and one in the lower back. Whether you are 2 or 102 (years of age) your spine should have this proper alignment.

2. Your spine is designed to move and it should be able to move through its full range of motion. 

Flex forward and backwards

Rotate side to side equally

Bend sideways equally

3. The spine should be surrounded by many strong muscles and ligaments. If any of those muscles or ligaments become weak it can make the spine more susceptible to injury and illness.

 

Daily home Spinal Care Procedures:

The following Home Spinal Care procedures shuold be followed daily and consistently just as you brush your teeth. If done correctly and consistantly they will help you build and maintain the three areas of spinal health.

1) Range of motion, 2) Spinal Alignment, and 3) Spinal Strength and flexibility.
