One of the most important things to keep your spine health healthy is alignment. This means watching how the head, shoulders, spine, hips, knees and ankles line up with each other. Good alignment of the body puts less stress on the spine and helps you have good posture.
Our spinal cord is the highway for communication between the body and the brain. If the information cannot pass through due to your spine being out of alignment, this can cause problems in other parts of the body as well as your back. It can cause pinched or trapped nerves which leave pain or numbness in other parts of the body, such as the legs or hands.
To improve your spinal alignment, why not try to build the exercises provided by World Spine Day into your daily routine? You can find the exercises for adults here and the exercises for children here.
Chiropractic care can help with improving posture. If you think you might need help from us, please contact us for a free chiro check. Additionally, yoga and pilates classes are excellent for exercises to work on spinal alignment. We have pilates classes running here at the clinic on Wednesday afternoons and yoga classes running on Tuesday and Saturday mornings.
