Your spine is a graceful structure forming four gentle curves along the center of the back. It is part of your musculoskeletal system: muscles, bones, and joints all come together in this system to provide you with the framework that allows you to work in the kinetic system we know as body mechanics.
The chain starts with the head and ends with the feet, all working together to form a complete kinetic chain. And at the core of this chain is the spine. Every ounce of energy the body has is somehow tied to this central link whether by nervous connections to the brain or tendon connections to the bone. The spine serves to connect the mind and the body, and anything that goes wrong with this central component affects the body, and your overall health.
