Have you ever heard the expression "you're only as healthy as your spine"?
Chances are you have not, but it's a popular phrase used in the chiropractic community. The truth is, your spine has a lot to say when it comes to the mind/body connection. When your spine is out of whack, so is your mobility, your cognitive function, your overall alertness, and your overall health.
Below are a few ways you can keep your spine health in mind on a daily basis.
Chiropractic adjustments have been shown to be beneficial in maintaining your spine health. Chiropractic treatments can help reduce pain, reduce your chances of injury, and increase your mind and your body's abilities.
Whether you do yoga or you just do your own thing stretching-wise, it's important to make sure you're stretching out your neck, back, and your spine. Look up specific yoga poses that target these specific areas to increase your spine health.
Think of water as the motor oil of your body. Your joints and especially your spine appreciate it. Drink about half your body weight in ounces per day.
