We all know that the spine is an important body part! Not only does it help you stay upright, assist you with twisting and bending and help support your weight, it protects a key part of your central nervous system –your spinal cord. Together, the spinal column and cord control every function of your body. A strong and healthy spine will provide an overall safer and better quality of life as well as promote total body wellness. Because it is made up of so many small parts, it can easily become distorted by every day activities or injured in accidents. When your back is out, so are you. Physical therapy can assist you with recovery from injury, reduction of pain and overall spine strength.
