Your spine is the backbone of your health—literally. Spinal health is absolutely vital when it comes to having great health throughout your whole body, which is why chiropractic care is an important part of any individual’s health care. It is incredibly important to keep your spine healthy and aligned, with the proper muscle tone around the spine so that your body can thrive.

Increased Movement

Not only will spinal health increase the flexibility of your spine, reducing risk of injury, but it will also allow increased movement across the rest of your body. Since everything in your body is ultimately connected to the spine in some way, good spinal health will allow proper nerve transmission and blood flow, leading to increased health in the limbs and other joints. A key to health is being able to move regularly and comfortably so that you can exercise and live your life fully, and having good spinal health will help you achieve that pain-free and flexible movement throughout the entirety of your body.

Good Posture & Proper Balance

Your spine is meant to have curves in it when you look at it from the side, and those curves allow for good posture and proper balance across your body. Having those ideal curves will reduce the likelihood of subluxations, leading to better overall health. When you experience the feeling of being in the neutral spine position where your skull, rib cage, and pelvis are all in proper alignment, your body has more balance and stability. Your body can function better when it is correctly aligned and having good posture with proper balance will lead to better spinal health and wellness long-term.

Muscle Strength

Having strong back muscles is not just about being able to lift heavy things or work out effectively. Strong back muscles are vital to the health of your spine and your overall wellness. The muscles surrounding your spine are in the back and the abdomen, and they support your spine and help keep it aligned properly. Regular exercise can help strengthen these muscles, but so can chiropractic. Using these muscles and ensuring they are tonally balanced and strong will decrease back pain, improve physical health, and increase spinal health.
