It’s Love Your Spine Month!!
Happy February and Happy Valentine’s Day!
This month, we thought we’d add your S-P-I-N-E to the list of things to L-O-V-E because, without good spinal health, a lot of things can feel really bad!
So here are Dr. Michael’s Top 5 Simple Secrets to Loving Your S-P-I-N-E!
S – STRETCH! Stretching is one of those unsung heroes that everyone knows about but doesn’t take very seriously until you can’t do it! It’s the one simple secret that can be the difference between life and health when you really need it!
Studies show that regular stretching can improve overall health and wellness. If there is ONE THING that you do each day for your health – STRETCH. Stretching at the start of the day helps get your brain, body, and blood flow off to a much better start! Your muscles don’t move themselves – that’s on you! Stretching helps tone and detox your muscles and body’s fascia, it helps to soothe and manage back and neck pain, it helps get the blood flowing to areas that can become stagnated by lack of movement, and it increases blood flow to your brain and body helping you to become more alert and aware! Imagine if all we needed was a little stretching instead of a sugary, caffeinated beverage to start our day?
P – POSTURE! Most of us have poor posture and we don’t even realize it! Did you know that poor posture puts a great deal of stress on your lower and upper back? That then creates a domino effect of poor breathing, poor nerve flow, poor circulation, poor digestion, and even poorer moods. Posture-related problems are on the rise with “text neck” and many people
working from a laptop or sitting at a desk all day. This can throw off your entire day and in the long run, can cause more serious issues.
So! Here is Dr. Michael’s Posture Checklist (When sitting):
