Your Back

  1. Your Back is separated into 3 sections:
    • The cervical spine – neck
    • The thoracic spine – upper back
    • The lumbar spine – lower back
  2. The spine is an intricate structure made up of a variety of joints, ligaments, and nerves, all of which work together to support, strengthen, and move the rest of your body
  3. Because there are so many moving parts, the lower back has a high risk of injury
  4. More than 31 million Americans experience lower-back pain at any given time, according to the American Chiropractic Association
  5. Stretches:
    • Child’s Pose
    • Downward Dog
