Maybe you’ve never heard the expression “You’re only as healthy as your spine” but just because you’ve never heard the expression doesn’t make it any less true. As a matter of fact, your spine is incredibly important when it comes to motion and movement, not to mention communication between your brain and the rest of your body.
If your spine is out of whack, that means that all sorts of problems can start to occur, including but not limited to back pain, neck pain, leg pain, insomnia, dim bulb, GI problems, compromised immune system, and more.
Below are a few ways to keep your spine healthy.
Engage Your Core
When you’re exercising, it’s important that you engage your core muscle group. Sure, it might not be as fun or as sexy as working more popular muscles like the arms and chest, but you’ll start to feel amazing after a few workouts. Eventually, your body will start to feel bad when you don’t engage your core during workouts.
Water is to humans what engine oil is to automobiles. Making sure that you drink the requisite amount of water each day will have your body, brain, and spine working at optimum capacity.
