Heard of dental hygiene? What about spinal hygiene? Just as you brush and floss your teeth, don’t neglect to “brush and floss” your spine daily!
Here are some simple exercises – remember, motion is lotion.
– Contract the muscles for a slow count of 4 (10-15 seconds).
– HOLD each stretch for 15-30 seconds.
– Then relax them for a slow count of 4 (10-15 seconds).
Do for 3 – 5 repetitions, 1-2 times a day.
If you experience pain during any stretch/exercise, stop and consult your doctor before continuing.

- caring for yourself and your loved ones, or
- enjoying your favorite hobby or sport to the fullest.

You not functioning optimally is costing you and the people you love a great deal. Persistent, poor posture, pain and function is common but not normal. Every day of inaction is costing you a day of being healthy and fulfilled.
