The human spine is made up of 33 bones, all stacked and working together like a well-oiled machine to provide the main support for our bodies. But, just like a machine, if one small part fails or goes out of alignment, the entire mechanism no longer functions efficiently.
The spine is the body’s core. It is surrounded by muscle and bone, and tendons and ligaments, all designed to be flexible to adapt to whatever the spine does. Also surrounding the spine are thousands of sensitive nerve endings that contribute to the health of the spine and are part of a large and sophisticated central nervous system.
If you stand and view yourself from the side, there is a natural curvature to the spine. Because of its shape and construction, the spine is a marvel that helps us keep our balance and gives our limbs a nice wide range of motion. The curves of the spine can even absorb shocks to our system, like a coil.
When you picture the spine in this way, in all its complexity, it’s not hard to see how one small misalignment could cause problems. Just like a set of gears, even one minor part being out of alignment can grind the system down. You can experience muscle strain, sharp pain signals from nerves being compressed, even joint stiffness can result in a part of the spine being out of position.
This is why taking good care of our spines is so important. And yet, it tends to be one of the most overlooked aspects of our health.
When we stand, we sit, bend,and twist and walk, we usually don’t have to think about it too much. Until something goes out of place. Then suddenly, the spine we took for granted gets our attention. If you have ever suffered from back pain or migraines triggered by a stiff neck or tense upper spine, you understand the pain involved from having a spine that’s out of whack. You are also probably seeking answers about what to do about it. Seeing Dr. Eingorn, is the answer.
