You Only Need Two Minutes a Day for Spine Health

If you lose range of motion of your spine, you’re more likely to develop spinal degeneration, better known as arthritis. We want to make sure your spine goes through a full range of motion through each plane of motion. What do I mean by that? Your spine should move through three planes in six different directions. The neck should move forward and back, side to side, and left to right. The same thing goes for your lower back. You should be able to bend it forward and back, side to side, and also rotate it.

These two stretches I want you to do daily is to take your neck and your back through a full range of motion. Take it to the end range of motion and hold it for 10 seconds. Six neck stretches take only one minute. Take another minute for back stretches.

It’s simple, but simple habits can create huge impacts for you and your family’s health, when done over time. If you have any questions about this topic or more, please don’t hesitate to call or set up a consultation. Let’s chat!

Spinal Health Matters Even If You’re Not in Pain

You should be concerned about your spinal health even if you’re not in pain. If I polled Americans and asked them “How do you know if you’re healthy?” most of them would say they are healthy if they feel good. The problem with that answer is that most problems in the body can come on without you feeling symptoms until it’s too late. Let me give you a few examples.

My mother died of a heart attack in her sleep when she was only 47. However, if you were to ask her how she was feeling that day, she would have said she felt fine. My grandfather passed away of lung cancer when he was 71. Your first instinct might be “Oh, he was a smoker,” but he wasn’t. He was actually exposed to asbestos in his 40’s and for decades, something was going on inside his body that he didn’t feel until it was too late.

The problem with judging your health based on how you feel is that it makes us reactive instead of proactive. The healthiest people are proactive about their health. So be proactive about your spinal health and give me a call today to set up a consultation at one of my two Houston locations. Your spinal health is the source of health in your body, and you want to make sure there’s not anything you’re neglecting.

If you have any other questions for me, don’t hesitate to give me a call or send me an email. I look forward to hearing from you!
