“If your spine were on your face you would take better care of it”
Like Dental Hygiene, Spinal Hygiene is the concept of actively utilizing regular exercises and movements to create a healthy spine and to ward off spinal degeneration (arthritis). Unfortunately, Spinal Hygiene hasn’t become common practice yet.
The reality is, if your spine were on your face you would take better care of it. Since 1997, there has been a 465% increase in cosmetic surgeries to make us appear healthy and vital on the outside, yet on the inside, spinal degeneration and arthritis continues to rise.
Statistics show that 80% of Americans will suffer with chronic low back pain within their lifetime, and the most common cause of disability among adults is musculo-skeletal issues. Most of these problems develop slowly, as neck pain or back pain, head aches or migraines. The pain comes and goes and is never too unmanageable. Eventually, the body finally says, “I’ve had enough!” and minor pain becomes an inability stand upright. Now the pain is as obvious as if it were worn on someone’s face, and now, inevitably the problem must be addressed!
